Wade & Ali | A Grant Park Engagement Session in Milwaukee

Today on the blog are the cutest high school sweetest you’ll ever meet – Wade & Ali. Gosh, I don’t know how I get so lucky with couples who are SO in love but I adore how fun they make this job!

Wade & Ali started dating in high school and have been together for almost 9 years! I first met Wade about 6 years ago when we worked together as servers at the Texas Roadhouse — even back then, he spoke SO highly of Ali and would literally sing her praises. Although Ali & I hadn’t met yet, I remember thinking how sweet their relationship was just by the way that Wade talked about her. Years later, it was NO surprise that I absolutely adored her the second we met at their engagement session this past week!

As a photographer, the one thing we wish we could control is the weather. It would be so amazing to have the ability to erase the wind, move a few clouds around, and add sunshine to every session! During Wade & Ali’s engagement session, it was incredibly windy and chilly… we barely escaped the rain too! BUT the reason I’m telling you all of this is because I’ve never met a couple who had such a positive attitude and EMBRACED everything that came their way! Both Wade & Ali laughed through the entire session, snuggled even tighter, and had the time of their lives just being together! At one point, Ali said “We can’t control it so all you can do is enjoy it” — her attitude stopped me in my tracks! It’s so refreshing to be surrounded by couples who have such a mature perspective on life <3

Wade & Ali, you two are the epitome of what love & dedication looks like. Thank you for showing the world that attitude is everything — your marriage is bound for a lifetime of happiness with a perspective like that. Xo


I just ADORE the way that these two look at each other!!!

This is one of my favorites because it was a completely candid unposed moment – it’s just so Ali & Wade!
