Brian and Caroline | A Festive Engagement Session at The Wisconsin State Capitol and Jensen Tree Farm in Madison, Wisconsin.

November 19, 2018

This is going to be the last session posted on the blog for a bit and oh is it a good one!!!

***Cue velvet red dress against the white marble of the Capitol building, smiles with eye crinkle lines, a tree farm and SO MUCH JOY**

We first met Caroline this past summer where she was a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding! When she inquired, I remembered who she was because not only is she outgoing and fun, but she has beautiful curly blonde hair and the most infectious smile that are both unforgettable!! I was so excited when she and Brian inquired for their own wedding because I had no doubt he was going to be just as amazing as she was and, let’s be honest, Caroline is going to make one stunning bride! The engagement session only proved that to me and I cannot wait to see these two in a wedding dress and tux!

Brian and Caroline live in Chicago where they met two years ago. For something different than the norm, they decided to come to Madison for their engagement session and I am so glad they did! We both agreed that the Capitol would be the perfect backdrop for their dressier outfit and I love how Caroline’s dress just pops off the white! She is just radiating in theses photos and I love how the light hits the velvet of her dress : ) After meeting Brian, I immediately noticed the warmth of his smile. He is such an approachable person (which I personally think is a really RARE but highly desirable trait!) and even after just a few minutes, I really felt like I could be my true self around him and no matter what, he would welcome me with open arms. Coupled with Caroline’s charisma and outgoing personality, these two really are a dynamic duo!

After the Capitol, we finished Brian and Caroline’s session at a local tree farm just outside of Madison. Being from Chicago and living right in the city, I just had to laugh at how much these two loved the tree farm! They couldn’t get over how cute and charming it was! I think we picked the perfect spot : ) Even though the temps dropped quickly towards the end of the session, I was happy that we had tolerably warm weather for them as we had to reschedule their first session due to rain and storms!

Like I already said, we are so excited to document and witness these two say “I do” next fall but until then, here are some favorites from their festive Wisconsin engagement session!
