When you photograph an engagement session of close family, you get to experience a side of them you don’t see too often. Maria, Joe’s sister, with her new fiancé, Thomas, is just the latest example of this. Once Maria was in front of the camera, she was transformed. Confident. Elegant. Joyful. These are just a few words that describe what we saw in Maria on a beautiful afternoon in Western Wisconsin. In addition to those three words, and probably most important, when she was in the arms of Thomas, you could see on her face that she felt valued.
When we were wrapping up the session (right after the chicken photo!), Thomas told us how much he appreciated the time and effort we put into the engagement session. We just love when our couples tell us how thankful they are. It reminds us about how much we love taking photos, and that we wouldn’t want to be doing anything else in the entire world.
Maria and Thomas, we are so excited for you two! We always tell couples that believe or not, you spend more time with the photographers on a wedding day more than most people. We cannot wait to be there with you two capturing all the special moments on your wedding day.
