Appleton Engagement Session – Lawrence University – Stephen & Christina

My husband had known Stephen and his family for years as he is the younger brother of one of his best friends. We met Christina for the first time at an informal swing dance lesson she and Stephen hosted one summer on her parent’s lawn while Sam and I were engaged. I had photographed Stephen’s older brother Tim’s wedding as my first ever wedding as a lead photographer and I was so honored when Stephen and Christina asked me to be their wedding photographer!  Christina wanted me to take their engagement photos at Lawrence University in Appleton as she was a senior there at the time, and Lawrence is Stephen’s last name. We also got some portraits at Memorial Park in Appleton for a more natural setting. We had been hoping to get some snowy portraits, and while quite a bit of snow was already melted, we were still able to find some.

Sam and I were living in Iowa this time last year but thankfully he was able to travel with me which always makes engagement sessions extra fun. Stephen and Christina invited us to go out for for coffee/hot cocoa with them afterwards to warm up which was so sweet as we really enjoy spending time with them as a couple. Stephen and Christina are such a great match for one another and it’s fun to see how much fun they have together. A year later we love getting to see Stephen and Christina more now that we are in the Fox Valley and are so excited they are expecting their first little one just 2 months after us! Stephen and Christina, you guys are such a fantastic couple and t’s been an honor to photograph your love for each other!
