I met Clare and Brett over the holidays this past winter at my favorite coffee shop The Root Note, They were home from Washington DC for the holidays and I was SUPER glad to be able to meet with them. Because, let's face it- they are adorable, but beyond that they are smart and cultured and fun, genuine people. From the minute I laid eyes on them I was dying to get them in front of the camera, can you imagine what a beautiful bride and groom they will be? I can't wait for their Lacrosse, WI wedding next June! Here's a little preview of your time together on a super hot and buggy June day in Lacrosse, which ended up being super fun and not too terribly hot!

It's been a long time since I blogged, I think my Squarespace account was wondering who the heck I was. All for good reason folks. But I have missed my blog and my photos and clients and feedback and messages and ahhhh....In the winter I am without. But I am feeling motivated and more alive than ever today so I thought, I gotta get the the blood pumping back into this blog! I am starting with an AMAZING couple who flew me to DC for this session. We hit all the touristy stuff but not for the session, the magic of the session was we hit all of Meghan and Adam spots like their condo, the bar where they shared their first kiss, their favorite coffee shop and neighborhood and park. I have to tell you these two are beyond smart, beautiful, kind, genuine people. They picked me up in a different state at midnight when my flight was cancelled! They took us to dinner AND found a Wisconsin Badger Bar in the neighborhood so my husband could feel right at home while I shot. We had a fabulous weekend in DC sight seeing, eating good food, being kidless and exploring a new and amazing city oozing with history! It was an eye opening for me, I was never a big history buff but it's incredible! I ubered everywhere, I seen Abe Lincolns hat for the goodness sake. But most of all I got to hang with these two kids. Enjoy!
Three things I Love about Meghan and Alex:
#1. They love old vinyl records (yes! these young kids!) and they are into this amazing era of music I grew up on, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, The Doors, America, Simon and Garfunkel...I am totally crushing on this couple.
#2. Meghan said "we're old souls"
#3. They gifted me the mug she used at the engagement session that I as oogled the entire time, how did she know I would LOVE it?
Did I say 3? I meant 4....
#4. They planned a weekend getaway in a cabin and went canoeing, etc.. so they could come closer to me for the session and Meghan had these AMAZING ideas that really represented them as a couple and at the same time they were totally spontaneous and went with all my ideas.
#5. They are ADORABLE.
