Industrial Winter Engagement Session in Milwaukee, WI - Abby + Seamus


Abby + Seamus

Engaged / Married

Fun story about this downtown Milwaukee engagement session with Abby + Seamus.

When I first met Abby she was new to Milwaukee from New Orleans, Seamus was working in Tennessee and was meant to move up as well right before the wedding. In the mix of planning Seamus got offered a job and they decided to move to Nashville right after their honey moon. So Abby’s few months in Milwaukee was basically to plan the wedding.

Seamus was to arrive a few days prior to the wedding and they were supposed to get married at the courthouse. Well, give it’s Wisconsin winter we were in the middle of a polar vortex, flights were delayed and the courthouse was closed on the day they needed to go. Their new plan was to find an officiant who could marry them at some point over the weekend. Found a guy, they met up downtown, ran into a bar for witnesses and did the damn thing. I met up with them the day after for their “engagement session.” Turned out to be a “we’re married” trial run for Monday type of deal. Even though I met these two so briefly and a few days before it didn’t matter. We connected and they opened up and we had such a blast working together. We shot these on Saturday and their wedding was on Monday at The Cooperage ( Check it out here!)
