Luxury Engagement Session | Taylors Falls, Wisconsin | Wedding Photographer

Did you ever think that the love of your life may be across the ocean! Well, I am here to tell you the truth – your person may be just an ocean away…read on for living proof! The love story I am about to share with you is truly one made from romantic novels.

Let me start by saying that true love is something that doesn’t come easily for everyone. Sometimes finding the person you were meant to spend forever with can seem very daunting, and dare I say, even impossible.

Aimee & Zach never imagined their person was across the Atlantic ocean. You see, Aimee is from South Africa and just happened to accept an au pair job in Wisconsin where she would meet the sweetest high school teacher – Zach.

Aimee & Zach dated for 8 months before Aimee would have to fly back home to South Africa. And as fate would have it, these two continued their relationship long distance until the summer of 2018. What an amazing accomplishment! After that time period, Zach visited Aimee’s family in South Africa…and the rest of their love story fell into place.

I had the privilege of photographing these two in a dreamy location. Aimee & Zach love to hike and take road trips. So they traveled 5 hours to meet me here at Taylors Falls, WI. Not once, but TWICE!

That’s right – we had to re-schedule their engagement session once due to unforeseen weather conditions. So after 10 hours of driving to this location, just look at what we were able to capture!

Aimee has the sweetest giggle and just can’t stop smiling when she is around Zach. And clearly, Zach is the coolest teacher ever. Their love for one another is magnetic and so genuine – just like the two of them. An ease with one another that is truly palpable, and able to make even the worst skeptic, able to believe in love again.

Aimee & Zach – cheers to finding the love of your life and congratulations on your engagement – not even an ocean could compete with what was meant to be!
