On a frigid almost-winter morning, Ryan and Karsen brought me out to a winery in the midst of the Baraboo bluffs. This is view and this couple warmed my heart even as my fingers froze.
They, along with their dog (Oakley), were complete champs in the glacial temperatures as I bossed them around for the perfect picture. Their love for one another makes each picture cozy and bright even though I know their noses and their toeses are cold to the bone.
A large thank you to both Ryan and Karsen for allowing me to shoot these precious photos. I had an absolute blast with you and Oakley.
On a brisk fall morning, I invited some friends out to a recreational trail in Verona to take some couple photos. I asked them to cuddle on a bridge, hug next to a fence, and snuggle in a ditch bank. Boy was love in the air.
These two are high school sweethearts who have been together for over eight years. They have stuck together through it all. The fact that they are palpably in love after all of those years truly melts my heart.
I am thankful for such kind, loving, and sweet friends that allow me to take their time, boss them around, and take way too many photos. I am grateful. I am lucky. I am blessed.
