How cute are these two? I mean, seriously?! I am SO bummed they are escaping to a dreamy island with sand and sun and their closest family and friends for their actual wedding but thrilled that they chose me to capture their engagement photos. Brianna and Phil are two grad students at UW who fit together so well. Their love is magnetic, and I don’t think Brianna stopped smiling from the moment I met her; which is clearly one of the reasons Phil has fallen for her! We had a lot of fun traipsing through the arboretum under the beautiful magnolias, sipping champagne and laughing at silly commentary. Our session was scheduled for much later in the month, because we were hoping for blooming trees and the weather in Wisconsin has been quite unpredictable–but when I saw that they were in bloom we made a date and moved the session up; it worked out perfect albeit the 50 degree weather!! Brianna and Phil will troopers and you could never tell we were shivering our way through the night!
