Being with Laura and Nathan for their Big Falls, Eau Claire Engagement Session brought Cody and I so much joy! We met Laura last summer when she was a bridesmaid in Katie and Javon’s wedding! I remember thinking “That girl is so sweet!” after photographing the bridesmaids that day, because Laura’s smile was from ear to ear the whole day! When Laura inquired about Cody and I capturing her own wedding, we were over the moon. We always feel incredibly honored when a couple inquires with us after they have seen us work together before.
We met Laura and Nathan over Zoom a few months ago and learned how they met and what they are planning for their wedding day. After realizing that so much of their time together is spent going on walks with their pup, hiking new trails, and adventuring into new spaces, we knew their engagement session should incorporate their love of nature.
Laura and Nathan settled on Big Falls Park in Eau Claire. The day of the session Cody and I went to explore and scope out the spots we would use during our session. We were incredibly blessed with a gorgeous 80 degree day in early May! Big Falls is so magical, and it made it even better that it was warm enough for us to really enjoy being near the water. It is too difficult to describe its beauty, so I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves.
Laura and Nathan packed a beautiful little picnic to enjoy at the falls during their engagement session. Cody and I loved being able to capture this special aspect of their relationship. While Laura and Nathan sipped their drinks and munched on cheese and crackers, At Last by Etta James (played through our bluetooth speakers) complimented the sound of the falls behind them. Cody and I enjoyed a bird’s eye view of these two humans and their special relationship. Laura and Nathan care deeply about each other, and they aren’t afraid to have fun and be themselves when they are together. They are authentic and incredibly kind. Cody and I left their session feeling so joyful and refreshed!

At the end of our session, the sun started to peek through the clouds. It lit up Big Falls in the most beautiful orange-yellow light. It was the perfect end to this gorgeous session!
Laura & Nate, we are so excited for you to be husband and wife! We are praying that your engagement season brings the two of you closer and that you can continue to build the foundation of an incredible marriage. It will be your wedding day before we know it! xoxo, Andrea & Cody
[…] We ended the day at Bye the Willow for Nathan and Laura’s reception. Meaningful speeches brought tears to many eyes (mine included), a 10-pound cheesecake and cupcakes were enjoyed, and Laura and Nathan snuck away for a few sunset portraits in the quiet nearby creek. Watching Laura successfully descend a very sketchy staircase to the creek gave me flashbacks to their Big Falls engagement session- if you haven’t seen the photos yet, it is a must!
