Evan and Shannon brought something interesting to their shoot at one of my favorite Milwaukee engagement photo locations, Grant Park, on September 20. It wasn’t just their dogs Tesla and Newton, though they were great subjects too.
Mad scientists in their own ways, Evan and Shannon decided to write their wedding date in bacteria in petri dishes. Oddly, it turned out to be a great personal touch.
Shannon even mentioned on Facebook that she had thought of doing the engagement session in a lab. To give that some context, Shannon is a PhD candidate at University of Minnesota. Evan is a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute for Health. I would have been up for it!
Grant Park offered a variety of beautiful locations for the shoot, too many to explore in one session. The park contains wooded trails, bridges, fences and lots of green space. To sum it up, Evan and Shannon totally knocked it out of the park, so to speak.
Evan and Shannon will marry in Milwaukee in July 2016, and I’m so excited and honored to be a part of it. I can’t wait to see what nerdy surprises they have in store, as they’ve talked about playing some theme songs from their (and mine) favorite shows and films.
Congratulations Evan and Shannon. What a gorgeous couple. Thanks for making me your photographer!
