Engagement Session: Lisa & Tim

My primary goal with every engagement shoot is to get to know my couple better and for all of us to have fun making pictures. Getting to know each couple helps me tailor my photography approach to their personalities, but this time also helps them get comfortable in front of a camera. And in every sense of the word, my session with Lisa and Tim was a success. I got the best compliment from Tim when we said good night–he thanked me for making the shoot fun for someone who finds being photographed awkward. I couldn’t ask for more than that! 

Lisa and Tim will get married in Milwaukee in the fall. We started the engagement session downtown in the loop, for a little antique, a little modern and a little gritty…  

…but also wanted to find some off-the-beaten-path locations.

I loved, loved, loved shooting at the Montrose Harbor Bird and Butterfly Sanctuary. No end to the amount of backdrop choices! And I had so much fun hiking through the brush in the golden light…

…and even more fun watching Lisa and Tim as they became naturals in front of the camera. When a couple is having fun and being genuine their pictures are naturally gorgeous.
