Lauren + Joe // Milwaukee Engagement

Lauren and Joe remind me a bit of Dean and myself. They met and started dating their senior year in high school, and then went into a few years of long distance. I know first hand how hard that is, but these two came out a strong and beautiful couple. He is in the military and so when I heard their wedding was at the War Memorial, I thought maybe it was to honor his commitment however it was also because the bride dreams of a beautiful outdoor ceremony and has a love for the lakefront. Seems like the perfect compromise to me! Not to mention, the location is beautiful! SO, when it came to their engagement session, I suggested Sheridan Park Beach to get that beautiful lake effect imagery she so loved. Then we headed to seven bridges (I had never been there, it is a hidden Milwaukee gem!). These two are so intimate and adorable, I can't wait to celebrate with them next summer for their wedding! Congrats Lauren and Joe on your engagement!
