April can be such a tricky time in Wisconsin when it comes to the weather. You'll get days like today (upper 70's & sunny), right next to ones filled with almost-freezing (or sometimes ACTUALLY freezing!) temps. Thankfully, our lovely state cooperated for a lakeside engagement session, and I'm so glad it did!
Ellerton & Allison are such laid back, sweet people. They're engaged to be married this October (have I mentioned how much I LOVE fall weddings?!) in the Milwaukee area, but reside in Bay View. We chose to shoot near the lakefront for their photos, just past the Bay View Terrace Beer Garden (convenient spot for an after-session drink or brat!).
Also included in their photos was Bill! Would you believe this handsome guy is 11 years old?! He was so, SO well behaved throughout the process, and even flashed a few smiles for the camera. Too cute!
This was my first session in Bay View, and I have to say, I've not given it enough credit. Just south of Milwaukee, it's filled with a number of shops, restaurants, breweries (such as Enlightened Brewing Co. - Check it out - it will NOT disappoint!) where you can explore, eat, drink, and have a good time. I'm told they have an awesome farmer's market, too! I'm a country girl at heart, but I admit that living in a bigger city, like Bay View, would definitely have some advantages!
Ellerton & Allison (and Bill!), I wish the two of you nothing but happiness as you plan and prepare for your big day. Also, never stop looking at each other the way you do now. It's adorable, infectious, and nearly had me crying while editing. LOVE IT!
