Nikki and Josh are adventurers at heart. Nikki has an incredible passion for life, and I get the feeling that Josh gladly follows her lead as they chase new adventures together. I knew that we needed to capture their joy and lightheartedness in their downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin Engagement Session, and I am so so happy with the end result!
Nikki and Josh met while attending college in Minnesota. They lived close to each other in the dorms and became friends quickly. Their group of friends from college still gets together yearly to enjoy a weekend at Nikki’s family cabin in La Crosse, WI! Their relationship was built on this solid ground of friendship, and though they were hesitant to start dating in order to protect their friendship, they are so glad they took the leap of faith!
In their limited free time, Nikki and Josh train to run Spartan races around the country. They love using these races as a chance to explore new places and make memories together. When it comes to their wedding day, they want the focus of their day to be a big celebration. Knowing the two of them, we are sure that their wedding day is going to be an amazing one! Seeing them interact together during their engagement session was so much fun- Nikki and Josh are relaxed, playful, and totally in love. Cody and I cannot wait for their June wedding at the La Crosse Center!
There were a few icons that Nikki knew she wanted to be incorporated into their La Crosse Engagement Session: The Blue Bridge and The Pearl Ice Cream. The Pearl Ice Cream will be Nikki and Josh’s wedding dessert, so that was a given that we would capture some photos of them with their chosen treat. Nikki chose the Blue Bridge because it is going to be a focal point of their wedding day, and it symbolizes their family joining from Minnesota to Wisconsin. Cody and I made a plan for how we could safely capture them on the bridge, and we were blessed with the most amazing golden light when we reached the bridge! Safe to say these are some of our most unique and beautiful engagement portraits ever!
Enjoy our favorites from Nikki and Josh’s La Crosse, Wisconsin Engagement Session!
Nikki & Josh, Cody and I are so incredibly excited for the both of you. Engagement can be an overwhelming time of your life where you are busy focusing on the next chapter and planning for a beautiful wedding day. Our hope is that you take time during this busy season to remember the reason behind this season: the two of you and the love that you share. Continue to adventure together in big ways and in small ways. We are counting down the days until you become husband and wife!
A huge thank you to Makeup by Sarah Koblitz for making Nikki look and feel her best for her engagement session!
