Winterfell Acres Engagement Session | Brooklyn, WI
Melanie is one of the first photographers I met after my husband and I moved to Sun Prairie. We would go into the camera shop where Melanie worked part-time and endlessly bug her about which investment we should make next, how does this work, what do we need, etc. She was always so helpful and patient, and as a transplant to Madison herself, she happily handed me her business card and invited me to reach out to her whenever. Since I'm honestly terrible at inviting people to do things or go places with me, I'm sure she was actually the first one to suggest we grab a cup of coffee together. I could have talked with her for hours! When running a pretty independent business, it's really nice to have a like minded person to bounce ideas off of, share tips and tricks, and talk about what we wish would be better in our businesses and the wedding industry as a whole. We got to know each other a bit on a personal level too. We bonded over our love for our pets, which is hopefully pretty obvious in Melanie and Chris's engagement photos. Dulcy, at 16 years young, is the gorgeous long haired pup you'll see in several of them! When Melanie reached out to me and asked about her wedding date, I did a little happy dance inside! I can't wait to be part of Melanie and Chris's intimate spring wedding, not just as a photographer, but as a friend too!
