Megan is one of those people I just knew I was going to love from the moment we started emailing. She has a huge heart, bubbly personality, + exudes energy + joy. She has been such an encouragement to me in our short time of knowing each other + is one of those brides who just makes you that much more excited about what you do because of her own excitement for her photos + time with you!! Finally getting to meet both her + Jay (who is the same as Megan only the guy version!!) was definitely one of the highlights of our last few weeks!!
We started their session in downtown Madison by the gorgeous State Capitol (we are so lucky to live so close to this majestic building!!), + after only a few minutes into their session, Caleb + I felt like we had known Jay + Megan for years!! They’re just those kind of people : ) We laughed, joked, + snapped a few photos as we made our way down State Street from the Capitol to the Terrace ; ) As you’re about to see, these two are naturals in front of the camera–not afraid to be affectionate + show us how much they really do adore each other!! Our time with them made us even that much more excited to photograph their wedding this coming May!! It is going to be a dream!! I have no doubt : )
We ended the night sharing burgers, fries, + drinks at a delicious restaurant on the Capitol Square where we learned that they want their wedding day to be tomorrow (they cannot wait to be married : ) : ) !!!), + that they love spending the weekends at their lake homes + on the water–skiing, boating, + spending time with their families : ) We also learned that Megan reeealllyy wants a dog, but for now, babysitting our little Vivian might just have to do ; ) + that Jay reaallllyy wants a 70 Barracuda … we’ll see who gets their dream wish first 😉 J + M, we had a BLAST with you two!! Thanks for such a great evening of shooting AND getting to know each other better : )
Enjoy some of my favorites from their session + SMILE! It’s almost Friday!! : ) xoxo, M
Megan!!!!! I love this!! Jay was making her laugh here–I remember this moment!! So sweet!
This is the actual spot where they got engaged!! So naturally, we had to reenact it!!
We decided this session was also Jay’s modeling debut ; )
Megan’s ring is out of the world–and what’s even better?! The diamond belonged to her grandma!!
I love this shot : ) The two met at UW-Madison, + this is one of the campus’s most iconic spots–I have never seen it without any people!! We picked the perfect evening!!
