Winter Engagement Session at Myrick Park in La Crosse, Wisconsin

It was a COLD day for a winter engagement session at Myrick Park in La Crosse, Wisconsin. However, Cheyenne and Brandon faced the cold with a passion and LOVE for one another. The pair was so cuddly on their own; they made my job very easy. They even let me push it a little far with the cold at the end of the session. We were out on the frozen marsh, and I knew this vantage point was only accessible in the winter. Therefore, I wanted their gallery to take full advantage of that!

Before the session, I grabbed some wintery floral stems from my local florist, Viroqua Floral Mercantile. I always try to do a few engagement ring shots as part of the session. However, I knew that blooms and other foliage would be lacking during the dead of winter. Thank goodness for the pop of color and texture of the stems I snagged at the florist.

Winter Engagement Session Tips:

Cheyenne and Brandon took my winter engagement session tips to heart by utilizing warm layers (no coats) that were textured. Knit sweaters are a great option. They stuck to solid colors in their outfits, free of bold or noisy prints. I also love how Cheyenne paired her jeans with brown leather booties. While I worked on their ring shots, I had the couple warm up in the car.

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.
