Carla + Brandon ~ Wisconsin Nature Engagement ~ Wisconsin Engagement Photography

Oh my gosh – I’m not even sure where to start with these two!! They kind of just blew me away during this session because they were such troopers – not complaining one time about the fact that it was freezing cold, snowy, and icy!! Obviously planning a session for the last weekend of March, one would think the weather would be at least temperate, if not possibly MILD. Ohhh were we wrong! I felt so bad because I suggested the location we shot in because normally at this time of year it is a great neutral backdrop, with spring on its way. Well, I was wrong. Instead, it was still snow covered, frozen over, wet, and cold! Poor Carla had on a beautiful maxi dress with little flats that the icy water just soaked right through… but every time I asked her if she was okay, if she needed to go to the car and warm up, or if she could walk through 4-inches of snow to get to the next location – she just smiled and said she was fine! On occasion Brandon even carried her on his back, which isn’t necessarily easy to do over slippery ice… but he got his love to the other side on dry ground – thank goodness!

Aside from them handling the chilly Wisconsin weather like champs – they are just the sweetest! These two were all smiles for a majority of the session and their smiles are contagious! (And they clearly are top quality people since they didn’t even make fun of me for almost totally wiping out on the ice/snow numerous times… haha.)

Anyway – enough chatter about how awesome these two are… you should probably just go see for yourself! Here’s hoping this crazy engagement session weather means we’ll have a beautiful fall day in September for their wedding!


Carla has just the prettiest green eyes!!! WOW!

Absolutely adore the giggles! 🙂

The details on this ring are just stunning!

And you know I couldn’t help but post at least a couple in their final outfit… 😉


… It’s like a dream come true… fellow Packers fans AND they clearly think I’m funny! 😉 Love these two!!
