Earlier this spring we traveled to my hometown of Spring Green, WI for this fun engagement session. I love it when we can incorporate a visit with the family into a trip for work! We love photographing sessions in this area because anybody who has been there can attest to the fact that it is BEAUTIFUL.  It was a little cool and windy the day we did the photos but we took warm up breaks in the car.

Jodi & Aaron live in Chicago together with their two kitties (a couple after my own heart!). They are an artistic couple—Jodi is a singer and Aaron is an Art Director. We are heading back to Spring Green next weekend to photograph their wedding, so check back for what’s sure to be some more stunning photos.

Fun fact: Jodi & I went to see the movie Arachnophobia together when we were pre-teens. (I did not remember this fact but Jodi, who clearly has a better memory than I, did. As soon as she mentioned while we were enjoying a beer together after the session I remembered, too.)

For the first part of the session, we started out around the small downtown. There are tons of places with great colors and textures–which we always love for photo backdrops.blog-1

Then we headed out to Jodi’s parents’ house, which is where the ceremony will take place. I LOVE the vintage purple dress that she changed into! blog-13
