I can't wait to show you what it's like to be a KS Bride or #KatieSchubertSenior !

We checked the weather, and then re-checked it before we left for Mackenzie and Chris’ engagement session in Milwaukee. Dry skys, very little chance of rain, so we went for it! They traveled all the way from Chicago, after all! So we had to try! Well, our dry evening turned soggy very quickly, and stayed that way through the whole session! That doesn’t typically happen, but Mackenzie and Chris weren’t even phased – they had permanent smiles the entire time and we had the BEST session!

Although I don’t prefer to shoot in the rain, and my couples don’t prefer to be photographed in it, I was still able to get gorgeous images! This is one of my favorite Milwaukee locations because we can always get so much variety, and every time I go back to it I see it just a little bit differently. I LOVE how these turned out for these two!

Normally the bride & groom-to-be are considered the guests of honor for an engagement shoot, but we had two more of those join us at the very end! Their two English Labs, Tula and Nache were the most well-behaved and obedient dogs and posed so perfectly for us. I couldn’t believe it! Whenever I try and get my dog in a picture, he either trys to run away, or just looks miserable the whole time. But Tula and Nache made it so easy and I’m glad we could get Chris & Mackenzie a full family photo!

They’re getting married next April and it’s going to be so beautiful, I can already tell. Chris & Mackenzie, congratulations on your engagement! I can’t wait to see you two next year, but for now, here are some of my favorites from your session!

Hey! I'm Katie!

This is where I share not only my work and show off my sweet couples, but also (many) pieces of my life. I'm an open book when it comes to talking about things I love, current obsessions, my cute pup, and my amazing hubby, so I hope you love reading about it! Also, you'll find quite a few resources for planning the wedding you've always dreamed of, so grab yourself a latte and start exploring!

-cheers, Katie
