These two met because Lisa wanted a free dinner. No I'm not kidding. I've known Lisa since high school and when she told me that I wasn't even the least bit surprised. She has always been super independent and career driven. So the fact that she was trying to be resourceful instead of romantic is right on point (and hilariously adorable!). She never expected that Wes would turn out to be thoughtful, sweet, caring, the father of her daughter and her future husband. But here we are! Less than a year away from their wedding. These two were such troopers for their engagement shoot. To say it was chilly would be the understatement of the year! But Lisa and Wes were totally down to run around down town Waupaca with me, do whatever I said, and look completely bad ass while doing it.
Even little Cleo came and toughed it out in the bitter cold. And we bonded over the fact that people have always called me "Cleo" by mistake and people will no doubt call her "Chloe" by mistake. We're basically the best of friends now.
Wes is a cop which means Lisa probably won't ever get to be on a jury (she's extremely disappointed. f'real.) but it does mean we got to sneak inside the police station to warm up a little bit.
Lisa kept telling me she didn't know what to do in front of the camera and that she needed lots of direction..... ummmmm I beg to differ.
We ended our shoot with coffee at Little Fat Gretchen's. If you're ever in Waupaca definitely definitely go to this adorable quirky joint and stuff your face with their unique spin on diner food!
