It’s been a year since our fall engagement pictures so I wanted to share my favorites on the blog! Jennifer Simonton (Jennifer Jane Photography) took our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures, and it was so nice to have the same photographer for both! We were able to spend a few hours with Jennifer getting to know her and practice for our wedding day. Since we decided to get married in La Crosse, we wanted Matt’s hometown of Hudson, WI to be the spot for our engagement photos. We both love fall and the colors change perfectly in October in WI. So, we decided to meet on Sunday Oct 22 just before golden hour!
Matt asked me to be his girlfriend while playing cribbage and it was our favorite date night in college. We’re so happy Jennifer captured one of our best memories 🙂
THE FRONT YARD
Matt’s parents have a beautiful yard full of trees that were changing colors and we decided to start there. We love how these pictures turned out with the red leaves in the background!
WILLOW RIVER STATE PARK
One of Matt’s favorite spots to go hiking growing up is Willow River State Park near his parent’s home. We had been there a couple times and I loved the hike to the bridge and waterfall. It was the perfect spot to take pictures at sunset!
THE WATERFALL & BRIDGE
It’s so fun to look back on our first professional photos taken together! We loved our experience with Jennifer as our photographer and would recommend her to anyone in the MN/WI area 🙂
