The Retzer Nature Center Session of Danielle & John

I met up with Danielle & John last week at The Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha, Wisconsin. To say I was excited for our time together is a complete understatement. You see, I photographed Danielle’s sisters engagement and wedding back in 2016 & 2017 (wow). It truly means SO much to me when a family member or close friend, years after the event, reaches out to me to celebrate with them. It’s truly the biggest compliment and the connections I hold so dearly to my heart.

Danielle & John are getting married at The Legend of Merrill Hills less than a year from today! I’ve worked at a couple Legend Clubs but am thrilled to work in this space. Newly renovated with stunning views? Sign me up. If you’ve been around here for any length of time you’ll also know that golf courses are my absolute jam. The manicured grounds with big trees always makes for such amazing backdrops.

The night of our session at Retzer Nature Center was perfect. We had a deliciously warm sun, perfect temperatures, and no wind. If you live in the Midwest, you know that wind is sometimes an autumn staple, so I was very excited about this. While we thought it was a great night for photos, meant that 10 other photographers also hit the jackpot. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a space that was more photographers than patrons. It was so fun hearing the voices and laughter coming from the sessions around us.

I am so excited to be sharing this session with you all today! Beautifully fall and an absolutely stunning couple. I can not WAIT to photograph Danielle & John’s big day!
