Lizzie and Lucas have lived in Chicago together for several years, but their story began in (drumroll, please…) Milwaukee! Of course, we thought – what better place to have their engagement session? We made the trek one Friday in early December, and it was one of those gorgeous, 50+ degree days. Although the day seemed to be perfect on its own – these two really made their session what it was.

We met at Lakefront Brewery (one of our mutually favorite Milwaukee spots) and even got to explore downstairs in the actual brewery! Special thanks to Mike at Lakefront for hooking it up! Lizzie really wanted an industrial vibe, so after beer we hung out on the bridge for a while (and may have actually dodged a wedding party in the process!) before making our way to the Historic Third Ward. Honestly, every time I visit my hometown I miss it more and more.

Our session didn’t feel complete without stopping by the Milwaukee Art Museum. We arrived at the Calatrava just in time for sunset! Lizzie and Lucas were such troopers – even though it was getting chilly, we were still able to make a little magic. My favorite thing about photographing these two: they never once stopped smiling.

Lizzie and Lucas: I’m so happy we were able to have your engagement session here! You two were a blast to photograph – already getting excited for your Chicago wedding next fall 🙂
