Matt reached out to me a couple months ago about photographing his wedding and last month I finally got to meet Jamie + Matt in person. They told me about themselves and shared their love story . Jamie explained how they met several years ago on a blind date. They told me how Matt proposed after a fun date around Madison.
Their love for the lake and the outdoors brought them to Madison. It was only right that we photographed their engagement pictures along Lake Mendota. I met Jamie + Matt at Tenney Park on a pleasantly warm November afternoon. Oh how great did these two make the lake look! Jamie + Matt spent time talking to each other as I photographed them. Matt made jokes that made Jamie give out this amazing laugh full of life. Those are my favorite moments — the ones where you can see real + honest emotions. You can tell these two keep each other entertained. We continued around the park taking advantage of the falling sun which gave the most beautiful sunset. The sun-kissed sky highlighted Jamie + Matt as they embraced one another.
It’s always amazing to watch a couple interact. These two understand each other’s love language. They understand their body movements, like how Matt knows to brace himself for when Jamie surprises him by lunging playfully onto him. Matt kisses Jamie’s forehead so tenderly as if silently telling her all the words to express his love. Of course, these two adventurous souls ended their session by taking off their shoes and jumping into the super cold lake. I’m sure they didn’t feel the cold since they were having such a fun time with each other.
Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer, Jamie + Matt! I look forward to photographing more special moments at your wedding next summer <3
