When couples ask me for suggestions for their engagement session I always ask them what they want to remember, let’s say 10 years down the road, from this time of their lives. Mugsy and Mike love their house and neighborhood, so we shot the engagement session right where they expend a lot of time together.
As a photographer in Madison, WI, I always strive to create engagement sessions that truly reflect the unique personalities and experiences of each couple. When Mugsy and Mike approached me about their engagement session, they were unsure of where they wanted to shoot. That’s when I suggested asking them what they wanted to remember 10 years down the road from this time of their lives.
Mugsy and Mike were very clear about what was important to them. They loved their house and the vibrant, eclectic neighborhood where they lived. They wanted their engagement photos to capture the essence of their life together in this special place. I couldn’t agree more!
We decided to shoot the engagement session right in their neighborhood, at the spots that were meaningful to them. We started with some shots in front of their house, capturing their warmth and love as they cuddled on the porch. We then wandered through the streets of their neighborhood, capturing them in the places where they spent the most time together, like the local park and the lakeshore.
The engagement session was a great success. We were able to capture the essence of Mugsy and Mike’s love story in a place that was truly special to them. I know that these photos will be treasured memories for years to come, reminding them of the happy times they shared together in their beloved neighborhood.
