Wisconsin Engagement Session
I recently met Becky and Billy at her parents house for their engagement session. After chatting with her father a little bit, he told me that was the house he and his wife bought the day after they married and have lived there for 32+ years!! We chatted while watching the deer .. about 8.. walk in the fields across the street (pictures in post). That's why it was so important for Becky to have her engagements photos taken at home. We walked back in Dad's field to check out his newly built deer stand, then walked around the street to watch the deer and picked apples. Billy also picked Becky on the swing she used as a child and finally ended the session with a few pics in front of Dad's newly painted shed door :) I love capturing little moments like this! Can't wait for their Two Rivers WI July wedding!
How Becky and Billy Met...
Becky and Billy's parents met at a retirement party for the Pastor of Becky's church at the time. They got to talking, and realized they both had single children. Billy's parents mentioned to him about the conversation, and Billy ended up sending Becky a Facebook message asking if she wanted to hang out sometime! Becky was getting ready to leave the country for a few weeks , so she didn't think much about the message and ended up forgetting about it.
A few weeks later after she had returned from her travels, Becky received a strange voicemail from her grandma saying how she "couldn't believe what she had done". Becky called her grandma and learned that she went up to Billy after church and told him that he needed to contact Becky again. Becky was worried that her grandma may have embarrassed Billy at church, so she sent him a Facebook message apologizing! Billy said that it was fine and that he wasn't embarrassed at all...and proceeded to ask if I wanted to hang out the next day! Becky said yes, and the next day they met at Neshotah beach. They spent the rest of the day/night, and the rest is history! Becky remembers calling her mom the next day to say that she knew one day she was going to marry Billy :)
Thank you Grandma!!
