Alyssa + Jared

Those of you that live here in Wisconsin know how much stress and worrying go into wedding planning and the weather. We aren’t always so lucky here, it can snow in May and be rainy and chilly in August. But we hit the jackpot for Alyssa + Jared’s engagement session. It was the perfect fall day - not too cold, a little bit of wind, and a stunning warm & glowy sunset. Add this adorable couple to the mix and magic happens!

I met with Alyssa a few weeks back and pretty quickly, I felt like we would be a great match. She’s so sweet, kind, and easy to talk to. Actually if I’m being honest, I knew she was my kinda girl when she suggested we meet at The Gingerbread House (yum!). She was referred to me by her cousin, and one of my friends; and her fiancé Jared works at the same company that my husband does! Small world, right?!

We threw a couple ideas on location around before we decided on Retzer, and I had my fingers crossed we would have nice weather. I LOVE the sunsets in the field up on the top of the hill there, and I’m so thankful we got so lucky! I do tend to favor moody, cloudy days but the warmth and glow that the sun gave us this evening can’t be beat. We had a lot of fun during their session and I enjoyed working with these two - can’t wait for their October wedding next year! Cheers!
