I recently photographed this apple blossom engagement session for Emily and Chris! Right now Eliza (Emily's sister) is watching two of my three children, giving me time to sit down and blog their Madison engagement session.
Here's a little note from Emily and Chris about how they met...
""Chris and I met at Camp LuWiSoMo during a winter church retreat in January 2013. While we talked and got to know each other a bit, nothing came of our newfound friendship besides exchanging phone numbers. As the weeks passed, we kept bumping into each other at Calvary Lutheran Church in Madison, WI. This eventually lead to walking to church together, as our apartments in Madison were near by. Our first official date consisted of riding bikes and playing catch at a nearby park. We shared stories, giggles, and our love for being outside. As the dates continued, we also continued sharing our time together outdoors--biking, rollerblading, downhill and cross-country skiing, and eventually camping and hiking. We still love to do these activities together, and have since included more fishing (per Chris), more running (per Emily), and kayaking. I believe one of Chris' most admirable qualities (besides his sense of humor), is his adventurous spirit. I know our future together will continue to consist of many big and small adventures, and I can't wait for what's in store." -Emily "I met Emily at Calvary Lutheran Chapel's Winter Retreat. We started talking and I soon discovered Emily's knack for baking cookies. Conversations turned into our first date at Lake Wingra. The summer of 2013 had so many fun memories as we started our dating journey. What I love about Emily is her kindness." -Chris"
I can't wait to photograph their July wedding at Mount Olive Lutheran Church and Warner Park Community Recreation Center.
