Amanda & Chris | A Summery Engagement Session at UW Botanical Garden in Madison, Wisconsin


I left my house which is approximately 15 minutes from downtown Madison. It was misting & the clouds were DARK. The weather forecast had nothing on the radar with only a 20% chance of precipitation. It’s safe to say that I was a little bit frustrated.. By the time I reached downtown, the mist had stopped but the clouds still remained. I have to say, those clouds produced some of the most beautiful & yummy light I have seen. A subtle glow which can only be attributed to the fact that we could face the sun.

Fun fact: if it’s really cloudy the sun will still produce more light in the sky where it sits. So facing the sun on a really cloudy day will help bring a really even and beautiful light to a subject (examples below ;)).

Amanda & Chris are about as cute as they come. I remember walking out of our meeting together this spring and feeling all sorts of excitement that I was welcoming to the 2020 calendar. They’re fun, giggly, relaxed, personable, and all around two people who feel like we’d be friends for forever.

SO excited to work with you two and am even more (as if I wasn’t already before) excited to celebrate you on your wedding day!
