Our First Engagement Shoot

When we won our photography engagement & wedding shoot with Daniel Woolf, we were so excited!

However, before we won this we had already booked an engagement shoot with a friend of a friend named Chloe of Life Tree Photography.  She seemed really fun and creative with all of her shots, so we didn't want to cancel our engagement shoot with her just because she couldn't do our wedding.  We figured the more pictures the merrier!  She offered us an incredible rate that we just couldn't pass up,and it was a chance to bond together and just have some fun..

Our engagement shoot was this past Tuesday (March 8th)... and it was like a dream.
Could it have gotten anymore Old Hollywood than the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee?
Chandeliers, ballrooms, velvet couches, pianos, scenic views.

We weren't sure how it worked at the Pfister when we asked permission if they would allow us to have our engagement photo session in the hotel.  Let's admit it.  We were a little intimidated by the fancy and beautiful aura of this place.  We were so blown away that the staff went out of their way to accomodate us on our special engagement shoot! They gave us a tour of the hotel, and all the areas that might inspire us.

The lounge on the 23rd floor (Blu) that overlooks the entire city of Milwaukee was locked, but a helpful associate at the Pfister went all the way up to the top floor with us.  She unlocked "Blu" and we had it all to ourselves.  We posed on the bar, stretched out on the piano Old Hollywood style.  We sat on the velvet blue lounge furniture.  So "Vanity Fair" circa 1940.

The whole experience was pretty amazing, and flawless.

Then there was the reveal of the photographs--a sneak peak--on Facebook from Life Tree Photography.
And just seemed like a dream. ♥  We can't wait to see the rest of the photographs from Chloe! She said we'll get a CD in about 2 weeks.
