Engagement Session at Riverside Park | Kara + David

Engagement Session at Riverside Park · La Crosse Wisconsin Wedding Photographer

Kara and David held their engagement session at Riverside Park in La Crosse Wisconsin. La Crosse is the town where the two met, where they currently work, and where they now live. Therefore, they wanted to incorporate “everything La Crosse” into their portraits. The blue bridge set over the Mississippi River was the perfect spot to gain an iconic portrait representing the city. Riverside Park itself also offered a beautiful and scenic sunset backdrop for their photos.

I also want to make special note of the couple’s outfits. Because of the fact that details can get lost in the shadows, I normally shy away from recommending black attire in a session. However, these two did black engagement session attire perfectly. The pattern on Kara’s dress helped her “jump off” the background. Because David’s polo shirt was short sleeved, it allowed for his body to not get lost in the portrait. It was also the perfect option to pair it with Kara’s dress since she had a dominating pattern. The formal nature of the dress was complimented (yet contrasted) by David’s more casual jeans outfit.

The session was beautiful overall. However, because the couple has been dealing with Covid-19 as they plan their wedding, it only made sense to get at least one picture of the two of them wearing masks!

Hi!  I'm Jen and I am honored you have taken the time to get to know me, and my family, a little bit better.  In addition to being a destination wedding photographer, I am the mom to a spunky little boy.  We adopted him when he was born and he is the light of our lives.  We currently live on a 34 acre farm in La Farge, Wisconsin, the heart of the Driftless Region.  In our spare time, we enjoy traveling as a family, caring for our small flock of chickens, tending to the garden, cooking, hiking, and crafting.  Every year we enjoy having our family photos taken on our property - we truly know how important it is to capture (and savor) each and every moment, milestone, and memory.

I will provide you with a gallery from your wedding day that elicits joy, that recreates feelings from memories, and provides romantic nostalgia when seeing the photos for the first time and every time thereafter.  You will receive photos that show true emotions as well as traditional styling and I will create everything without forced poses or cheesy smiles.
