From an adorable puppy to a beautiful train station, I’m so thrilled to share with you Harrison and Danielle’s amazing (albeit chilly) Wausau, WI Engagement Session. I have been waiting to get these two in front of my camera since we had our first virtual meeting a couple months ago! I could tell from the moment I saw them together on my screen that they were going to be AMAZING in front of my camera. Right from the start they were just so sweet and genuine with one another. I could tell they were a treasure trove of sweet moments just waiting to be captured.

But when I first talked to them Fall was already on its way out, my schedule was pretty busy and the weather was getting colder by the day. Cold weather engagement sessions usually aren’t anyone’s first pick and I was sure they would want to wait until Spring time to get something booked. That is…until they threw out a little snippet of info that changed everything. A snippet named, Francesca, or “Frannie” for short. A sweet little pug puppy that was set to come into their lives in November. Yes, once I knew a puppy was involved, I had GREAT hope that a chilly engagement session was going to happen after all…and it did.   

These two braved the cold, scheduled a DECEMBER engagement session, and came out on a cloudy 29 degree day all so little Frannie’s sweet puppy face could be captured forever.

All I can say is, WORTH IT! I mean really, is there any doubt? Look at her! Her cute little potato body* and those bright wittle eyes….gah!! adorable. (*seriously..when she first ran up to me, she looked like the most adorable little potato with legs…it was insanely cute. And her happy little wag was so strong she could barely run straight.)

So be warned! You will most likely want to go get your own adorable puppy after viewing the pictures from this session.

(And for any future couples considering me for their wedding or engagement photographer, I promise I didn’t ignore my couple completely due to the puppy…only a little bit…but they were pretty distracted by her too so I don’t think it counts…)
