Ashley and Ben | Wisconsin Engagement Session

Ashley and Ben’s Wisconsin engagement session was our first since moving to Wisconsin and ohhhh man! do they have a fun story to share!

The Proposal

“OH MY GOSH!!!  Someone is proposing to their girlfriend!”  Ashley’s attention was on the screen where the sign was displayed, “Will you marry me?”.  It wasn’t until Ben tapped her on the shoulder that she turned around to discover her boyfriend down on one knee … she was the girl being proposed to! We love engagement stories, especially when they are a complete surprise to the future bride!

When Ben proposed to Ashley he was 100% cool … on the outside anyway.  He never made her think he was acting weird.  She never questioned why her brother and sister-in-law were in town.  The thought never crossed her mind that she would be proposed to that night.  And, she never thought that the surprises would continue when Ben arranged a dinner celebration with her WHOLE family!

The Session

We were confident it would be a bit colder here in Wisconsin than our home state of Colorado.  However, we admit we were surprised when the polar vortex blew through in February bringing temps of fifty below zero!  We were also surprised that, thanks to cold temps and spring snow, we had to reschedule Ashley and Ben’s late April engagement session twice before finally deciding to move it to an inside studio. We were NOT surprised however, at how much fun we had with them!

Ashley and Ben …

… thank you so much for your patience in getting your session done.  And for braving the cold to come hang out with us!  Hopefully your wedding day will be just a little bit warmer! We are grateful for you both and are cheering you on.



Special thanks to Kate for letting us borrow her warm snow free studio for a few hours! Check out our first visit to Kate’s studio here!
