Megan + Ross | Madison Engagement Session

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of hanging out with the super awesome Megan and Ross for a few hours to take some engagement photos in the Madison cold. It's not often that I have couples opt to take their engagement photos in the winter time, and even less often (aka never) that I have a couple suggest we walk even further onto the frozen lake than we already are. They were not afraid of the cold, so we were able to get some pretty gorgeous photos out in the snow on Lake Monona (so happy, it was a lot of fun). We ran into the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile (it was a mini one! so cute) so of course we had to stop and take a quick photo with that just because we could.

Then we headed back to their apartment to warm up with Megan and Ross's favorite drink, the Old Fashioned, made the old fashioned way. I spent some time just hanging out with them at home capturing them in their natural environment. I got to meet their adorable cat, June who was pretty suspicious of what I was doing there, and then I kind of learned to play cribbage while I snapped some photos of them playing (I didn't really catch on very well... I'll say it's because I was concentrating on taking pictures hah). We took a few more photos around the house before calling it a day. This was my first day in the life style engagement session and it was so much fun. I love how laid back it was, and it was great for Megan and Ross to feel a little more comfortable (not to mention warm!) with a camera in their faces. I would definitely love to do more shoots in this style.

I absolutely can't wait to capture their big day this coming October with their ceremony at Burrows Park and reception at Inn on the Park. It's going to be a beautiful day.
