When they came walking into Olbrich Gardens, we knew we were going to have a problem! Not all engagement sessions go like this! Maddie and Alex had perfectly coordinated neutral color outfits, a classy look, and an obvious love between them. Paired with the quintessential engagement session backdrop of the Gardens … we knew we would never have enough time to capture this beautiful couple even if we had all day!
The struggle is real!
It was a struggle to find a backdrop that wasn’t perfect. It was difficult to get Maddie and Alex to stop smiling and laughing. Ohhhh the challenges of being wedding photographers.
Alex and Maddie’s Olbrich Gardens engagement session was seriously challenging … in the best way possible! While it was our first visit to this spectacular garden, it was a special and familiar place for our couple. They had shared many a date strolling through the ever changing garden scenes, cultivating the bond that has grown between them. We did run into some weather challenges. But despite the overcast and cloudy day, the joy radiating from these two was enough to brighten even the gloomiest of days!
It’s easy to see how Maddie and Alex fell in love at a place like Olbrich. The sweet smell of flowers on a warm spring night; the serene garden beds only interrupted by romantic foot bridges and Italian inspired fountains; to the still-as-glass pools, beauty is literally everywhere you turn. Well, almost everywhere… there is some construction near the front entrance while Olbrich is building some additions, but we can easily overlook that! And, it may even be a bit metaphorical. While even the best of relationships still require work, even the most beautiful gardens require tending and thoughtful attention.
Okay, okay… maybe we’re trying to be a little too poetic. Or, maybe, it really is that magical of a place. Either way, you get the idea! We had a great time with this wonderful couple in a phenomenal location right here in Wisconsin!
Maddie and Alex, you guys seriously rocked your engagement session and we loved every minute with you! Thank you for introducing us to Olbrich Gardens! We look forward to laughing with you on your wedding day in just a few short months!
