Summer Engagement Session at The Wisconsin State Capital Building | Gmartel Photography
August 6, 2023
A quiet, rainy Sunday afternoon at the Wisconsin State Capital. It felt like a movie, the plotline clear since the second I said hello.
Two people who have such great chemistry that my job was to simply document it. Without a trace of influence, they raced through the capital, up the marble stairs only stopping to share a laugh or kiss.
The rain clouds broke the second we stepped outside. The gray skies transitioned to bright blue, the wet grass reflected their saturated greens and the trees had begun to show the first traces of fall with spotlights of orange and yellow. A palette of color that symbolically reflected the rich plotline of this film unfolding before my eyes.
A change of scenery, a new 4 legged character and a flock of ducks in flight.
The laughter never stopped.
An absolutely beautiful evening with two people who will become one in less than a year. A plot-line that has been seen many times before but will never cease to amaze me when I’m fortunate enough to be in the front row.
