Lakeshore State Park served as a gorgeous setting for Rachel & Charlie’s engagement photos just a couple weeks ago. We have a huge soft spot for Lake Michigan and, as soon as Rachel & Charlie mentioned it, we couldn’t wait to get down to Milwaukee for their session! We made our way around the park (which also happened to be where Charlie proposed to Rachel!) and ended their session at the Third Ward, walking through the streets and sprinting hand-in-hand through alleys. :) These two are planning an awesome weekend-long wedding celebration in beautiful Door County next summer and we have been looking forward to their Horse Shoe Bay Farms wedding since the moment their inquiry arrived in our inbox! ;)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

We met Stacy & Steve at Cave Point in Door County for their engagement photos on a crisp fall evening. Cave Point is one of the County’s most iconic destinations and, on this particular day, the giant waves were crashing and giving us quite a show! :) Door County was the most perfect location for Stacy & Steve’s engagement photos as it also allowed them to soak in a relaxing weekend in the county to enjoy the fall colors!!

We had been looking forward to Stacy & Steve’s session not just because we knew the two of them are awesome and we would have fun together in this beautiful place, but also because they were bringing along a special little someone who we simply couldn’t WAIT to meet! How adorable is their goldendoodle pup, Jordy!?! He melted our hearts immediately and was such a good boy while we were taking pictures throughout the session. He effortlessly managed to make at least 15 friends because everyone who passed by couldn’t continue on without giving his sweet, fluffy face a few pets!! It’s no secret that we are also giant dog lovers, so this only made us love Stacy & Steve even more. :) We are so excited to be a part of their family farm wedding next June in Central Wisconsin!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Maggie and DJ came to visit us in Wausau for their engagement session on an absolutely GORGEOUS fall evening!! The colors were just turning, the sun was bursting through the trees, and the four of us were nothing but smiles as we made our way around the mountain together (even with Maggie in heels!) :) These two are so sweet together, and we knew from the moment we first Skyped with them that their style & smiley faces were a perfect fit for us! Let us assure you, they are as adorable in real life as they seem from these photos!!

From DJ serenading his lovely bride-to-be with his guitar (we must say, we enjoyed the serenading as well) to us sprinting through the tall field to catch a glowing sliver of golden sunlight, this session made us even more excited for Maggie and DJ’s wedding and we cannot wait for their day to come next September!!

Maggie & DJ, thank you both for making the trip to Wausau and for trusting us as we took you “off-roading” through some very thick fields in search of the perfect light! We had SO much fun with the two of you and cannot wait to celebrate with more photos on your wedding day!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Ellie & Andrew have such a fun and heartwarming relationship! They’re supportive and loving in the way they adore & encourage one another, but also know how to pull out the laughs and have FUN!! We enjoyed every moment of their engagement session and were blessed with a gorgeous evening to capture them in Wausau. They brought along a vintage tandem bicycle and also packed a cozy picnic to enjoy in the field. Seeing their faces of pure joy as they cruised down a charming brick street with their legs flailing and smiles from ear-to-ear was a moment that we can picture them laughing about for years to come! After their bike ride we photographed Ellie & Andrew in a beautiful field with sunlight wrapped all around them. It truly was a perfect ending to a lovely evening spent with these two and we cannot WAIT for their Rothschild Pavilion wedding next May!! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Although we have pretty much known this day was coming for quite sometime, nothing can replace the realness when your sister calls from Hawaii to tell you that she’s engaged! AHH! We can barely contain our excitement! :D Charles had contacted Butch’s Dad about a month before he planned to propose to Stevi. We must admit, he planned EVERYTHING out perfectly… Right down to scheduling a trip to visit all of us in Door County right after he planned to ask Stevi for her hand in marriage in HAWAII!! If that isn’t cool enough, Charles asked Stevi to marry him in a helicopter! WOW! We of course flipped out, laughed and gave hugs over the phone when we got the call in the middle of the night! The only thing standing in the way of Charles’ master plan was a pair of hurricanes headed right for Hawaii – it just so happened that their plane home was scheduled to take off right between the two of them. But, they sailed smoothly all the way to Wisconsin and the celebrating continued! :)

After a FULL day of fun on the pontoon boat in Door County, we asked Stevi and Charles to join us for a few golden hour engagement photos in Butch’s & Stevi’s parents field. LOVE!

We know these two will plan an amazing wedding day that fits them perfectly and we honestly cannot wait to be there to celebrate with them!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
