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

Kelly & Andy made their way to Wausau for their engagement session and after a bit of primping & exploring in our charming downtown, they were ready to be adorable in front of our cameras! :) There’s really something about the rain in photos that feels so cozy & romantic, and it didn’t stop the four of us for a second! Kelly & Andy are playful & fun and they obviously have a career waiting for them in modeling, if they so choose! We absolutely love the energy they brought to their session and are SO excited for their wedding next June in the Milwaukee area!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

As we wiggled our way over to Northwestern, we immediately fell in love with the charm of its intimate campus. Old buildings with stunning architecture, open spaces shaded by giant trees, and Lake Michigan – what more do you need? :) Clearly, the answer to that is Samantha & Robb because we had so much fun exploring their Alma Mater with them!! These two decided to have their engagement session on the campus where they met, and we always love when couples invite us to a place that is meaningful to them! It was adorable to see Samantha & Robb light up with each other as we made our way around campus :)

After photos in outfit #1 (how much do you LOVE Samantha’s dress?!?), some very ominous clouds started following us and the rest of their session included a little game of hide and seek from the rain! At one point, with all of our hairs standing on end, it seemed like lightning might be coming as well — YIKES! ;)

A treat in the form of Samantha’s favorite – cupcakes! – were the perfect addition to her & Robb’s photos along the lake, and it was the sweetest ending to a fun afternoon spent with these two. We cannot wait for Samantha & Robb’s barn wedding this September in Door County!!

Love, Kelsy & Butch

This engagement session was kind of like a dream. One of those really good dreams that you want to relive over & over!!

When we arrived at Tom’s Mom’s house in Sturgeon Bay, we knew a few things to be true: Karyn & Tom are awesome, they have an adorable pup named Weasley, and Tom’s Mom’s house is on the water in beautiful Door County. Those three things alone had us feeling SO excited for Karyn & Tom’s engagement session!! Little did we know, we would be photographing them along one of the loveliest tucked away parts of the County on a private dock, with dunes across the Bay that looked like we were in Cape Cod. And, this was only to be followed by more costal beauty as we inched our way along Bayshore drive over to The Alpine Resort!

Together, Karyn & Tom are affectionate and adorable, and Weasley had us all smiling non-stop with his bow tie and his cute little self! :) We cannot thank these two enough for spending the evening with us and are already looking forward to their Door County wedding next May at the stunning Horseshoe Bay Golf Club!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
