Haley + Jake Engagement Session at Sunset

Waukesha Engagement Photographer ~ Kara Reese Photography

I love doing engagement sessions. It is a time for couples so full of love. I hear engaged couples say all the time that the only thing they wish is that they would have met sooner. You don’t get much sooner than Haley and Jake, who met in high school!

Jake proposed to Haley at Lapham Peak State Park in Delafield, Wisconsin, and the couple wanted their engagement session to be there too. He proposed on one of their favorite trails at sunset, so it was only natural that their engagement photographs be done at sunset as well.

When planning for their session, Haley told me they wanted their photos to be semi-elegant. They chose their attire perfectly for the aesthetic we wanted. Jake looked elegantly relaxed in a navy blue sport coat, white button up, and dark jeans. Haley looked stunning in a light blue patterned dress with white heels.

Everything went perfectly with this session. I got so many shots of the sun behind them, slowly going down. We even got a rainbow in the sky at one point, and I can’t imagine a better omen for happiness for Haley and Jake! They said they were camera shy, but you’d never know it from their photographs. These two looked effortless, you’d hardly know I was photographing them, they were so absorbed in one another.

I know these two are looking forward to their wedding in May and especially the reception at The Legends of Brandybrook. Judging by their engagement photographs, I know Haley and Jake will be a lovely bride and handsome groom.
