She sat on his lap, giggling…..they talked about how he had just flown over 24 hours to get from an off-shore oil drill to Texas to Wisconsin, and then a few more hours in the car to land at Camp Wandewaga to be with the love of his life! For engagement photos. DEDICATION and love my friends.
Angela and Scott are gentle and adorable. And they are SO in love! :) I spent the afternoon with them as we explored the nooks and crannies of Camp Wandawega, and each time I go back to this place, I’m captivated! :) This place is magical. It’s a rustic, camp-style, outdoor fantasy-land with perfect aesthetics and amazing details! :)
A perfect spot for an old boy-scout meets WI girl….don’t ya think?! :)
Um…have you heard of CAMP WANDAWEGA?!?!? I caught an eye of this AMAZING place a few years ago and have been *yearning* to have a reason to visit (and shoot) there ever since! It’s an amazing 1950′s, retro-meets-lands-end style camp that looks like it belongs in the movie “Moonrise Kingdom”! :) It’s amazing!!!!! With a HUGE treehouse, many sleeping cabins, an old-school style tent area and perfectly curated vignettes all over the property! :) You MUST check it out if you find yourself in South Eastern Wisconsin anytime soon! :)
So when Laurie e-mailed me with these prefect visions of shooting her engagement session at Camp Wandawega, I was jumping up and down in my office! I mean, really….I was THAT excited! Because, really….Camp Wandawega plus Laurie and Jon was sure to be AMAZING! :) Laurie is a sweet, kind hearted, wonderful photographer in Milwaukee and her Jon is equally as adorable! Our entire time together, I was just in awe of how these two communicate and love one another…they are sweet. They are genuine and they are SO in love! I found my cheeks hurting behind my camera because *I* was smiling so much during our afternoon together. We chatted about upcoming wedding plans, her SUPER SUCCESSFUL wedding photography business and his hopes and dreams for being a awe-ing musician! :) These two….talent oozes from them, kindness pours from their heart and smiles just radiate on their faces….and you can SO tell how much they love one another! :)
I believe that a key to any good relationship is respect and unwavering support for one another (through twists and turns, hopes and dreams, successes, ideas, and adventures)…and man do these two GOT IT! :) I *CAN NOT* wait to photograph their wedding and stand by them as they become husband and wife next September! :)
Oh—and PS, I could’t contain their engagement session into just one blog post….more coming later this week! :) HAPPY MONDAY everyone! :)
