Photography Registry for KLEM Studio Couples
Kaylynn and Shane’s Wisconsin Winter Engagement Session
KLEM peeps, I have news I’m thrilled to share! I just launched a new service: the Photography Registry! Couples working with KLEM Studios are now able to register for products and services through me, and share this registry with friends and family. Now, your loved ones can order photography products instead of (or along with) dishes or a Crockpot for your big day.
How does this work? First you must be a client of KLEM Studios. Secondly, we will set up a chat to figure out exactly what you want on your registry. Feel free to reach out to me via email and we can customize what you want on your photo registry.
Joanna + Derek’s Wisconsin Winter Engagement Session
On a misty and bitterly cold winter’s day, Kaylynn and Shane stepped onto the freshly fallen snow at the Brown County Reforestation Camp for their engagement session with KLEM Studios’ associate photographer, Krista. Ever the fashionable couple, Kaylynn brought a number of outfits to the session. However, the centerpiece was the stunning red gown Kaylynn bought because she was so inspired by Witney Carson’s winter engagement session. Kaylynn and Shane knew that for their engagement session, they wanted to embrace Wisconsin’s winter beauty and wander hand-in-hand among tall pine trees (and some fresh snow wouldn’t hurt!).
Adam + Courtney’s Proposal at Lambeau Field, Green Bay
It was a cold winter’s day when Joanna and Derek ventured out into Green Isle Park with their mastiff/weinheimer mix, Larry, for their engagement session with KLEM Studios’ associate photographer, Krista. But the chilly weather wasn’t enough to dampen Joanna and Derek’s moods! They were always laughing, giggling and had a warm embrace when they got close. They didn't take things too seriously and were down to make crazy faces, dance, snuggle and give lots of eskimo kisses. Larry was willing to do just about anything, as long as he was bribed with lots of carrots!
Green Bay Fall Engagement Session: Andrea + Jordan
When Adam reached out to me to photograph his proposal to his then-girlfriend, Courtney, at Lambeau Field, he had thought of every detail. He was going to tell her they had been invited to Lambeau as part of the Ultimate Fan Experience the stadium was offering. Adam and his family have been going to the Packers’ Training Camp for the past 35 years, so it wouldn’t surprise Courtney that they were invited to tour the stadium.
Adam was able to set up a private tour that took them down to the field, where he planned to drop down on one knee.
Fall Door County Engagement Photo Session: Charlotte + Logan
Andrea and Jordan knew they wanted to create a fall engagement session that would capture their deep, exuberant love for one another. They had met at work, fell hard for one another, and Jordan’s proposal followed soon after. Self-proclaimed “weirdo goofballs”, these two are constantly smiling and making each other laugh. During their fall engagement session at UWGB, they talked about when they first knew they loved each other, and how excited they were to have recently moved into their new home. Andrea and Jordan strolled hand-in-hand along the trails in the UWGB arboretum, snuggling close as the yellow and orange leaves floated past them.
A Wisconsin Northwoods Engagement Session: Megan + Alex
Charlotte and Logan love to adventure together. Whether they’re walking their dogs, exploring new places, or trying new beers together, life is always exciting when they’re holding each other’s hand. They’re currently planning their next adventure: an amazing wedding day. Logan proposed to Charlotte on a snowy winter day just over a year ago. He pulled out all the right stops, using a dog tag on their fur baby’s collar to pop the question while Charlotte’s sister photographed the whole event. Charlotte of course said, “Yes!”
Green Bay Botanical Garden Wedding Proposal: Dave and Lauren
There are some people in this world that are just made to be together for the rest of their lives. If you’ve ever spent time with Megan and Alex, you’ve experience just how perfectly these two fit together. I’ve had the pleasure of being friends with Megan since high school when we were in choir together (#nerdsunite!). She is a sweet soul with an amazing personality that could charm the birds out of the trees. It would take an equally incredible person to steal her heart.
Door County Engagement Photo Session: Johanna + Aaron
Dave reached out to me with his fall proposal plans a few weeks before he and his girlfriend of three years, Lauren, were going to be in Green Bay. They live in Chicago, but Lauren had visited Wisconsin often with family and friends while she was growing up. She loves this area, and Dave wanted to include this special place in his plan. Lauren thought they were going to be celebrating her new job with the weekend getaway, but Dave had more elaborate ideas. Dave knew that he wanted to propose at the Green Bay Botanical Garden in the Stumpf Belvedere.
Spontaneous Engagement Session in Zion National Park
The waves of Lake Michigan crashed along the exposed cliffs at Cave Point County Park. A slight in the air, making brilliant fall colors even more pronounced. Johanna and Aaron wound their way through the trees and along the rocky shore, laughing as they walked. They had gotten engaged in Door County in January, and the area had captivated them so much that they returned for their engagement session.
Johanna and Aaron met on an online dating site, and they had instant chemistry.
Amanda and Jake’s Door County Engagement Session
I believe that in life, almost everything happens for a reason. There have been so many beautiful things that have happened in this lifetime, and I enjoy looking back and seeing where it may have all started and how we got to where we are. I met Trevor and Allison in Zion National Park completely by chance. My dad and I were on a road trip that I had planned to scope out some great landscape photography opportunities for my second business, Wild Klementine. We had planned to camp for most of the time even though late fall can be very chilly in Colorado and Utah, but we spontaneously decided to spend one night at the Driftwood Lodge near Zion National Park.
Prepping For Your Engagement Session
When Amanda and Jake were dreaming up their perfect engagement session, they shared how special it would be if they could celebrate their love story at the same place Jake proposed: Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm on Washington Island. We picked a date when the lavender would be at its peak and took the ferry across Death’s Door Strait to the island. Surrounded by a sea of purple flowers at the lavender farm, Amanda and Jake walked hand-in-hand, identifying different types of honey bees and talking about the bees they raise at their home.

It can be hard to brainstorm beautiful places to be the backdrop of your engagement session. Fortunately, here in Green Bay there are a ton of gorgeous, popular engagement session location options. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Door County Engagement Photos: Valerie and Dylan at Cana Island and Cave Point
I just love this time of year. Snowflakes float through the air on a regular basis, Christmas lights twinkle through windows, and presents are neatly wrapped under the treat. It's also ENGAGEMENT SEASON!
Green Bay Wedding Photography: Charlotte and Jeremy's Rustic Engagement Session
When I first talked with Valerie about her's and Dylan's wedding plans, my heart started beating faster. She painted a picture of a gorgeous fall engagement session in Door County leading up to their early fall wedding in Kewaunee a year later.
Green Bay Wedding Photography: Stacey and Cindy's Outdoor Engagement Session
When a couple wants to personalize their engagement session and use locations that mean something to them, it lights up my soul and my inner self does a happy little victory dance. Sure, couples that are in love are going to look great no matter where they decide to stage their engagement session.
Green Bay Wedding Photography: Andrea and Neil's Outdoor Engagement Session
After a loss, it can be difficult to traverse the dating world. Many thoughts may go through your head, from wondering if you're being respectful to your deceased loved one, to doubting that you will ever love again. Cindy had experienced tragedy, but found a flicker of hope when she met Stacy.
Green Bay Engagement: Sammie + Kyle's Outdoor E-session
Typically when I think of late September in Wisconsin, I'm imagining the trees changing colors, crunchy leaves starting to cover the ground, cooler temperatures, and maybe a little Packers football.
Boulder Engagement Photography: Ali and Brian
Friendship is a privilege to be treasured always. There are many different types of friendships--work friendships, best friends, the friendship you share with your parents and significant other...the possibilities are almost endless.
How many of you stayed in your home town after high school and college? Did you put down roots where you grew up, or did you start fresh somewhere new? For Ali, the answer was hitting the road and settling down in a new place: Denver, Colorado.
