We have never shot an engagement session like the one you’re going to see on the blog today — and that is why I am SO excited to share it! Chris + Sara (who are Milwaukee-based wedding photographers themselves!!) had a vision for their session that was a bit out of the box; something that was very true to who they are as people + as a couple!! I am ALL about this! We were so excited to document a romantic, editorial, + truly EPIC engagement session for these two at Devil’s Lake State Park just outside of Madison.
Chris + Sara met at … the Apple store. And it is one of the cutest stories I have ever heard! Sara is a very strong, very independent woman + at the time of her + Chris’ first meeting, she wasn’t looking for a relationship or honestly even sure if she would ever get married!! One day, she was having problems with her MacBook + made an appointment at the Genius Bar to get it looked at by an Apple expert— can you guess who helped her? ; ) Chris was immediately struck by not only Sara’s beauty but her determined + confident personality, + the accomplishments that he quickly learned (through conversation) she had achieved in her business. She came into his life at a time when he knew he needed a partner like her to push him to be the best version of himself he could possibly be. Without a doubt, after just a couple of minutes, he knew that Sara could very well be that woman.
Chris ran some tests on Sara’s computer while trying to strike up a conversation about their mutual love for photography. After everything was fixed + it came time for Sara to leave, Chris (boldly!!) mentioned that they should be friends on Facebook so they could share their photography + work with one another … Sara agreed : ) Who KNEW that would be the day they would meet their soulmate!? Just so unexpected + I LOVE that!!!
They connected online but didn’t really talk much over the internet. Instead, they decided to start hanging out to play cribbage together! They spent a lot of time together + one day, went to a movie that Chris insists was a date but Sara says was just as friends : ) Soon after, what started as an incredible friendship (at least on one person’s end … the other might have been wanting a relationship from day one! hehe!) turned into a dating relationship that has led them to where they are today. I can tell you from experience that these two are completely + utterly perfect for each other. They are an AMAZING team + complement one another’s quirks + strengths so so well : ) We have LOVED getting to know them better + feel so thankful for the kindness + love them have just lavished on Caleb + I! We seriously CANNOT wait until their wedding next September!!!! Can you imagine how amazing it’s going to be?! EEK! Enjoy this one!!
She must love him : )
LOVE : )
And then this happened : ) What an ending!!
