Fawn reached out to me via email and had inquired about only an engagement session. Her and Joe were in the middle of planning their August wedding and I was so excited about photographing this moment in their relationship. Shortly after that inquiry, she emailed me again explaining that their initial photographer had to back out from their day. I was heartbroken for them being put through that kind of stress but honestly thrilled that they asked me to shoot their day + I was available.
Fawn & Joe had an outdoor ceremony at Burrows Park in Madison, Wisconsin. My first time there and honestly, it’s a little slice of green space not too far from downtown. It’s beautiful and I could totally understand why they wanted to promise their forever there. It was a warm day but the rain was staying away which I know was so unbelievably important to Fawn. Right as their ceremony started, the winds picked up immensely and the clouds got dark but it didn’t produce a single drop of rain.
Their vows were some of the most sincere ones I’ve heard over the years. They were loving, supported, excited, and heartfelt. It truly was such a honor getting to photograph their day. Congratulations Fawn & Joe! I will forever be grateful to have witnessed your love!
