Kayla & Josh’s Erikson Park Engagement Session in Chippewa Falls

Last week with the gorgeous sun I met up with Kayla & Josh for their Erikson Park engagement session in Chippewa Falls. It was just one of those perfect fall nights before the leaves really started to drop, and we explored Chippewa Falls’ newest gem!

It all started back in 2016 when Josh pulled up Facebook and there she was, in his suggested friends’ list. So he added Kayla, and then one night she sent him a message. Though at the time they were living in separate states and thought there was no way in the world they could make it work – Josh ended up moving back to Eau Claire to pursue a different career which happened to be where Kayla was finishing her nursing degree. They say the rest is history!

But really, they have the sweetest proposal story – so I’m not done yet 😉 See, Kayla & Josh have a weekly tradition of checking the trail cameras. But before their tradition they decided to head out and go to dinner and then on the land where Kayla grew up just next to her grandpa’s tree stand was a camera. When Kayla checked the camera there was only one photo and it was of Josh holding a sign that said, “will you marry me?” When Kayla turned around Josh was down on his knee!

Next September these two will be getting married at a beautiful church in Chippewa Falls and then heading off to dance the night away at Lilydale!
