Dillon + Chelsea | Engaged | A Pastel-Inspired Engagement Session in Madison, Wisconsin.

August 2, 2016

They actually went to high school together, but didn’t really know each other then. I’m not sure if their lockers were far apart or close together, if they had any of the same classes, or if they sat in near one another during Friday night football games. What I do know is that fate would bring them together later in life, when the timing was just right for their love story to begin.

After high school, they each went to different colleges but maintained those same hometown roots. One Thanksgiving break, while home from college visiting family + friends, their paths crossed + it was then that fate said, “Now is the time.” They kept in touch after returning to their separate schools + the following summer, they officially began dating : ) I think it’s safe to say that now, Dillon + Chelsea are absolutely inseparable + have already began building a beautiful life together with their sweet pup, Maleigh, + their recently purchased home! Before we know it, their wedding day will be here bringing the icing on the cake — a MARRIAGE + forever commitment as they will officially become husband + wife! : ) 

These two came down to Madison for their engagement session last week + made a whole vacation/weekend of it!! First our session, then dinner with family + night in downtown Madison, then another adventure + night in nearby Wisconsin Dells!! These two definitely know how to celebrate + have fun together, + that is something I just love about them! We had so much fun getting to know Dillon + Chelsea a little bit better during their engagement session — I especially loved seeing Dillon’s face light up with LOVE + joy whenever I would tell them to touch their foreheads together : ) He just can’t hide his love for his soon-to-be bride!! That’s the best in my book : ) Enjoy some of our favorites from their session + stay tuned for their wedding next June!!

Loved getting to head downtown + switch things up for our second set of photos!! The cool breeze from the lake was an added bonus, too!! : )

The colors of their outfits + the sky all matched SO perfectly!!!!!!
