Downtown Delafield WI Engagement | Lake Country Engagement Photographer

In the middle of March in Wisconsin, a city engagement session is ideal because everything is still very brown. Jordan and Michael were hoping for a small town feel instead of a Milwaukee photo session, so I suggested downtown Delafield.  Downtown Delafield is actually quite picturesque with all of its different textures, colors, and architectural […]

Lauren and Evan had ALL the colors for their Delafield, Wisconsin fall engagement session. These two decided on Lapham Peak, and we spent their full 1.5 hours there.

So many of my couples have asked if it’s ok to bring their dog(s) to their engagement session. My answer is always, “yes, of course!” Dogs have such a playful nature and can quickly reduce session jitters and make everyone smile.
