Heidi and Rob met at Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, summer of 2011. After talking on and off for a few weeks, he took her out on their first date in Madison, where she lived at the time. They hit it off immediately. Heidi moved to Milwaukee after school ended and without any knowledge of where Rob lived, she chose an apartment directly across the street from him! Sounds like fate to me!
I originally met these two beautiful people when they both stood up in their best friends' wedding I photographed last summer. But before the three of us met for coffee in fall, I found myself very nervous preparing for this particular meeting. Heidi contacted me originally by email for their destination wedding. IN ITALY!!!!! No lie, my jaw dropped as I read it. I've wanted to visit Italy for as long as I can remember and I couldn't believe they wanted to take ME!! As soon as we met, my anxiety instantly melted away. We laughed so hard through that entire meeting, I had tears in my eyes! It was an instant connection and I was so excited to get to know them more.
Their engagement session was filled with tons of laughter and so much sweet love. They have such an excitement for life, and they never take themselves too seriously. I love that about them! I can't wait for their wedding this October. Not only will the scenery be top notch, but Heidi and Rob are going to make this trip one I will never forget.
