Cody + Andrea | Engaged | A Colorful Downtown + Myrick Park Marsh Engagement Session in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

August 23, 2016

The session on the blog today is, hands down, the craziest engagement session we have ever done!! And no, the couple is not crazy (ha!) — we had the most bizarre weather I have ever experienced during a session! When we met Cody + Andrea on the Riverwalk by the Mississippi in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin, it was hot + partly sunny. By the end of the session, we had a STORM on our hands + I’m so excited to share these photos because Cody + Andrea wanted to keep shooting as the storm rolled in … which made for some pretty amazing photos that you’ll see at the end of the post!!

I have been looking forward to this session ever since our initial Skype call with these two! Cody + Andrea have to be some of the nicest people we have ever worked with, + this is something we caught on to right away when we first met them. We have several connections with these two (mutual friends + past brides), + talking with them felt like we had been friends for a long time : ) They just EXUDE God’s love + joy, + being in their presence is really, REALLY life-giving!!

You can only tell so much from a Skype call, however. I knew going into their session that it would be really natural + that we would have a lot of fun together, but I didn’t know TRULY just how MUCH these two admire + cherish each other until we got to witness them together. They are HEAD over HEELS for each other. They are FULL of compliments for the other + so encouraging + loving towards one another. They LOVE to laugh + have fun together. They seek adventure + thrill + making the MOST out of the time they’re given together — both the big + little moments. I hope you will be able to see this in their photos!

Cody + Andrea, we LOVED our time with the two of you + cannot wait to witness the two of you become husband + wife next July! It’ll be here before you know it! Enjoy some of our favorites from your session + thank you for bringing so much joy to those around you with the way you love one another! It is inspiring + hope-filled : ) Love you two!

LOVE!!!! You two!!!!!

I just love this little part of downtown La Crosse! SO much color!! (AND amazing ice cream + coffee — not sure which is better ; ))!!! 

I just can’t get enough of this tricolored wall!! So cool — and just beautiful for photos!! : )

And then the storm clouds rolled in … !!!

And when the rain hit, we had to do a few more shots to wrap it up : )
