Truly epic is the best way to describe Sal and Rachel’s wedding, as well as their romantic story. From the amazing, fun friends and family that laughed, cried and supported them throughout the day, to the lovely setting at the River Club of Mequon, and finally the hilarity and celebration during the toasts and reception – they really did have it all! This is the first installment of a two-part blog highlighting the anticipation and excitement while getting ready, Sal & Rachel’s dramatic first look and culminating in a ceremony that was uniquely their own.
The love between Sal and Rachel is electric. They contacted us requesting both a sophisticated engagement photo session in downtown Milwaukee and a more casual shoot highlighting where they first met while students on UW-Milwaukee’s campus. Quickly ideas for such a shoot started to fly. We took them to some of our favorite outdoor spots through Milwaukee’s artsy Third Ward including along the Riverwalk, textured alleyways, and a short stop at Collectivo Coffee. We finished up our afternoon session enjoying the beautiful fall colors while walking through UW-M’s campus. We are so excited to share their couple’s session and cannot wait to capture their big day next year.
Our recent Rock the Frock photo shoot with the ever-adorable Amy & Andrew is a great example of the benefits of booking a post-wedding photo session. An afternoon together as newlyweds without the excitement and time-sensitive schedule of your wedding day allows us to feature our most creative work.
