Funky cool engagement session at Dr Evermor’s Park

How can you go wrong on location when you have a complete park full of fantastical metal creations and tons (literally) of other fun metal stuff?  Add in a great couple, and the answer is “you can’t go wrong!”  Enjoy highlights from Alais and Aaron’s funky cool engagement session.

Alais and Aaron, Olin Park Wedding

Rain threatened all day, but we managed to hold it at bay…at least until after we left the reception.  Then it poured buckets! It was a beautiful day for Alais and Aaron, made even more beautiful by their love for one another and the incredible job they did decorating the Olin Park Pavilion. Enjoy their highlight images!

Ashley and Jeff, Engagement session in Hobbs Woods

Jeff and Ashley coaxed me out of the city and up to shoot in the woods near Fond du Lac.  We had a blast and even ran into a group filming a slasher movie! LOL
