GORGEOUS DOOR COUNTY ENGAGEMENT | KATIE & NICK! / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

The moment Katie & Nick first reached out to us about their wedding photography, we did a little happy dance, and knew that we simply had to be a part of their day!! You see, Katie joked that she and Nick were often referred to as the "old married couple" among their friends. And you know what that meant to us? That we weren't the only ones who were happy staying in and playing board games or watching a movie with (or without) friends/family! :)

Leading up to their session we bounced ideas back & forth, and decided that the Lakeshore was the absolute perfect spot to start their session. Katie was absolutely gorgeous with her classic berry colored dress and professionally styled hair/makeup (thank you Jessica!), and Nick was so handsome too! We were completely blown away by the romantic light surrounding the two of them and it made for such a dreamy setting!!

While we were home in Door County staying with Butch's parents the day before, we noticed how absolutely perfect their property would be for the second half of Katie & Nick's session!! If we're being completely honest, we had been longing to photograph a sweet couple in Butch's parents' purple field for years. Not even kidding – YEARS!! It just so happened that this was the opportunity to do so, and we were thrilled that Katie & Nick were up for heading over to meet the McCartneys and use their gorgeous property too!

Traveling is a huge shared interest between the two of them, so when Katie & Nick thought to include their passports & a giant map into their session we knew that nothing could be more fitting. Just days after Nick proposed they headed to Hawaii for a long visit (how amazing is that?!), and their travel brought such an element of fun to this session :) We cannot WAIT for Katie & Nick's October 2014 wedding in beautiful Door County!!

Love | Kelsy & Butch
