It was a great thrill to photograph Lauren and Eddie's engagement session in downtown Milwaukee. I had visited there many times and I knew how scenic it was. From the Art Museum to the Riverwalk and ending at the beach, we had a great time in Brew City for this romantic engagement session.
We started at the Milwaukee Art Museum in late afternoon with the wonderful architecture as our backdrop. I love the reflective windows as Lauren and Eddie took a stroll and of course the "wings" of the building had to be captured for our first dip of the day.
Eddie mentioned that he loved the view of the city from a bridge near Pritzker Pavilion that he discovered while jogging one day. It was a great spot and these two soaked up the sun with the city in the background.
For a more urban flavor we visited the Riverwalk area for awhile with some romantic strolls on the boardwalk and some downtown city life photos. The sun reflected off the water as Lauren and Eddie shared a kiss on the pier.
We had quite the full sun on this pleasant summer day in Milwaukee and when we arrived at McKinley Marina it was still in full force. We used it to our full advantage as it gave a warm glow through all the wonderful trees in the park as well as nice reflection of our couples as they shared a laugh on the bed of rocks at the shoreline.
Our last stop was during golden hour at Atwater Beach where the couple brought out a sign for their Save the Date Card pictures.
We had to take the classic photo of a barefoot couple walking in the sand along Lake Michigan. It was very peaceful as the water lazily washed up onto the shore.
