Eau Claire, Altoona, Chippewa Valley Engagement Photographer

Today’s Engagement shoot with Claire & Steve was nothing short of amazing! I was so excited for this shoot leading up to it, nothing could contain me. I found the coolest, huge lollipop that I thought would be a cute twist on the fact that Steve is currently attending school for Dentistry. It just so happens, that Miss Claire has a little teensy bit of a sweet tooth, and was very excited about that 15 serving lolli.


We started our shoot out at Phoenix Park in downtown Eau Claire, since Claire wanted a photo on the infamous walk bridge, then continued our adventure deeper into Eau Claire. Claire & Steve are the epitome of the perfect couple. They are so completely in tune with one another, and just looking at them you can understand why they are planning to spend the rest of their lives together. It was such a pleasure being able to see the inside of their relationship for the day.


We also went & visited a cafe in town, where we grabbed a couple of ice cream cones and an Italian soda. (Soda for me!) If you haven’t tried a coconut italian soda, you should make it a priority. It’s so refreshing, especially in hot weather. We took some really cute photos with the cones, and ended our shoot at the old Public Library. This was such a fantastic shoot. Claire & Steve were such a blast, so full of life and laughter, I don’t think we stopped laughing the entire time. I am so beyond excited to photograph their wedding next May. I just know it’s going to be a great time, and Claire is going to be a beautiful bride!


Congrats Claire & Steve!

Wishing you always walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
And the love and laughter of those you hold dear.”
