My favorite type of engagement session is one where we walk a lot, and then walk some more. That’s how it was with Chris and Stacie’s session. I love exploring new spaces, while getting to know a great couple. We started out just south of the Capitol and then headed to the Madison Arboretum, close to Nakoma Golf Club, where they’ll have their wedding next summer. Open prairies and long grass never seem to get old to me.
On the way home, Kelly and I talked about how fun the session was and we tried to dissect what it was that made it so great. While there were many other elements of this session that made it beautiful, like the light and wind, we think we’ve boiled it down to these two essentials: 1 – a couple who enjoys hanging out with each other (I know, that should always be a given, right?) and 2 – a guy who loves to make his girl laugh (and of course, a girl who likes to laugh). :)
Thanks, Chris and Stacie, for being such a fun couple to photograph and to walk and talk with… we’re excited for your wedding next year!
