Trent + Ellie | Engaged | A Formal Downtown + Casual Sunset Engagement Shoot in Madison, WI.

September 24, 2015

If the couple on the blog today doesn’t melt your heart, or make you believe that two souls can be made for one another, I don’t know what will!! Caleb + I left our time with Trent + Ellie on cloud nine simply from experiencing their relationship + love for one another. It is SO sweet + tender, so honest, so delicate yet strong … I could go on. We get to work with the most AMAZING people, I mean it!! How did we get so lucky to find a career that we not only enjoy, but that encourages US in our relationship + marriage?! There are always things to learn + new ways to grow, + what better way for us to do so than living life alongside couples who are in the same boat + want the same thing?

Trent + Ellie met slow-dancing … at a high school dance!! hehe : ) These two have been together for a long time + that is one of the first things you notice about them when you’re around them: just how comfortable they are with one another. They now live in Madison (actually they live like 5 minutes from us!!), so doing their session in our beloved city only made sense!! We started downtown at the Capitol (which is always a good idea!!) + then headed out to the portion of the Wisconsin Ice Age Trail that runs right by where both of us live! We also discovered that we all love to run this trail + now I’m just on the lookout for these two every time we are out for a jog!! Hehe : ) Thank goodness for a gorggeeeoousss sunset that produced some amazing images of Trent + Ellie to end the evening!! I’m just in love with them (both the images + the couple) : ) 

T+E – enjoy some of our favorites from your session!! Seriously, thank you for being so vulnerable + authentic with your love. We hope you know how much life you breathed into us by just being YOU!! To say we cannot WAIT for your wedding this coming May would be a major understatement!!! SO excited!!! A whole lot of love to the both of you! : ) xo!

Love, love, love!!!

SO pretty, Ellie!!!!!

The most beautiful light!!! Ahhhhh!!!!
