Photographer’s Tip: Sometimes you get lucky – love the double sun flare in this picture! (Not photoshopped) We got lucky with a perfect reflection off the water!

I’ve known Sarah her whole life…and in fact her parents have known me for my whole life! From being the RING BEARER at their wedding…to photographing the wedding of their daughter…what a wonderful circle of connections!

This spot was just along a walkway, but the colors, layers and textures were to much to pass up! Not to mention the perfect moment!

One of the best parts of being an engagement photographer…is to see the real smiles and laughs as they share a little bit about themselves with me!

One of my favorite Madison features: The lakes!  You can’t go wrong with a setting sun over water!
