Darcy & Brad’s Sunset Engagement Session

WI wedding photographers

One of the things I absolutely adore about my career as a wedding photographer is getting to know some of the sweetest families that anyone could hope to work with. Darcy and Brad are a part of one of those families, and I am looking forward to their July wedding so much! I first met Darcy at her son Ryan's wedding to his beautiful wife Heidi. I was thrilled when she contacted me about photographing her intimate brunch wedding to her honey, Brad. Just look at how happy she was as momma of the groom in 2013!

We met for a cocktail before a brief sunset engagement session on the East side, and I instantly loved these two as a couple. They have so much fun together! As we chatted and indulged in cheese curds, they told me about their upcoming plans to go to a kite-flying festival and Darcy told me how much she loves Brad's spontaneity. They laughed and smiled together the whole evening. We then set out to battle the wind on Lake Monona!


I love that "I'm a lucky man" look in Brad's eyes in this shot.

The skies we enjoyed that evening just got better and better as the minutes ticked on. I love sunsets like that!

By the time we were ready to call it a night, the sky was just on fire.

I just know these guys are going to have an absolute blast at their Olbrich Gardens wedding this summer, and I'm just honored to be able to spend yet another beautiful and meaningful day with their families! Glad we got our sunset in during these engagement portraits!
