{engaged} josh + laura’s storm tossed Devil’s Lake session

The day of Josh and Laura’s engagement session dawned dark and grey, but we didn’t worry. Not overmuch. Even though the rain was coming down in sheets, Rob and I knew how hard it had been to get these lovebirds together for this one weekend. So, when Laura called and mentioned rescheduling, we said let’s give today a try, we’ve got umbrellas and weather proofed cameras, a little rain never hurt, right? Well, lo and behold it came time to meet and the clouds parted, the sun hazily showed his face and we had a rainforest in Wisconsin! The whole session was perfect, the light was gorgeous and filtered through the thick clouds so it seemed to just wrap around everything, the colors just seemed to pop out at us, it literally looked as if we had embarked to some southern rainforest for this shoot instead of Devil’s Lake in the middle of Wisconsin.

Josh and Laura are seriously so cute together, they were willing to do any of the crazy things we asked, plus had amazing ideas of their own. Josh is a rock climber, so we climbed some rocks, nothing big mind you, and got some amazing shots in front of the rock wall, which are some of my favorites. Laura has the most perfect curls, I am so jealous because my hair just frizzes like crazy, plus her eyes are gorgeous as well. Put the two together, because Josh is quite the handsome fellow, and we have a super cute couple to photograph, with two megawatt smiles.

All right, all right, that’s enough of my chatter, take a look at some of my favorites, you know how hard it is for me to choose! Feel free to leave me some blog love, it makes my day!

I usually love black and whites, but this session was so filled with gorgeous color that I barely switched anything to monochrome.
