Miranda and Fernando’s Milwaukee engagement session in June was a highlight of my summer! From their very first email (which happened to mention the Packers AND cats) and our lovely first video chat, I was more than eager to start working with these two. And guess what – they’re even more delightful in person!
We met at their home for photos with Tabb, their “only-child feline fur baby.” This lucky guy got to soak up allll the pets before accompanying us outside for a quick stroll! Miranda and Fernando told me more about their Valentine’s Day engagement at Disney World and we talked wedding planning, too. But mostly, these two were just gushing over each other 🙂
After Tabb’s turn in the spotlight was complete, we headed to nearby Boerner Botanical Gardens for some stunning golden hour photos. Seriously, we could not have asked for better weather! We wandered through the peonies, rose garden, past the koi pond, and ended up at the rock garden (my fave!). Finally, it was time to head downtown for photos with the lakefront at sunset.
As a Milwaukee native, I cannot pass up the opportunity to visit the Art Museum campus and Calatrava bridge when I’m in town. Coincidentally, these happen to be some of my favorite photo locations in the city! Fernando and Miranda were a treat to have in front of my camera, and before we knew it, the colorful sky turned to dusk. I couldn’t be happier with how this session turned out and am SO excited for their wedding day next year!
Miranda and Fernando: Your Milwaukee engagement session was a dream!! I had a blast with you two and am already counting the days until May…
