Shannon & Ryan – Engagement Session

Shannon & Ryan chose Governor Nelson State Park, a mere 20 minutes from Madison,  for their engagement session. It’s lovely when you can feel as though you’re in the middle of nowhere, but still have cell phone reception!


The dog children joined us for the first portion of the session.  SOO much cuteness running around!
