I am not really the kind of photographer that gets into styled shoots with elaborate fictional props. That said, I am a sucker for picnic and a bottle of champagne on a sunny afternoon, both enjoyed just because. Just because its great to be alive, to be warm, to be in Milwaukee, to be in love. For Alysha & Brenton these things aren’t really props either. Avid food bloggers and photographers, they belong to a champagne club and love vintage finds and afternoons spent at Lake Park. Armed with that knowledge I encouraged them to make it all come together for their engagement session. And it did! I love the light, the laughter, the feeling of these images and I can’t wait to capture their smiles again next summer at their Villa Terrace wedding.
