It has been on my calendar for a few months, but that didn’t mean this spring that the weather was going to cooperate or that the snow would be gone for Emily & Blake’s outdoor Eau Claire engagement photos. But the weather prevailed, and it was beautiful! These two drove three and half hours to meet me for the first time and for their engagement photos – I adored it!
In just under a month (a month to the day exact from the date of their session) Emily & Blake will be getting married at New Life Assembly of God in southern Wisconsin.
Emily & Blake met at a church softball game in the summer of 2015. Emily had just moved half way across the country from Maryland to take a new position as a youth minister at New Life Church in Janesville and “wasn’t looking for a relationship,” or so she told Blake and their friends. But their friends had different plans (and in fact had already decided that Emily & Blake were going to get married). So on the very first day of her new job, she ended up meeting her future husband! But it wasn’t until a month after they met that they went on their first date – and as Emily puts it, “it wasn’t long until we started to fall in love.”
When they aren’t taking walks in parks, or out on a date in Madison they love to be home together.
