Two weeks ago, we traveled to Door County for Jennifer & Erik’s Cave Point Engagement Session. After seeing Amanda and Ansel’s session on our blog, they decided Door County was the ideal setting for their session. It worked perfectly that they came into town from Minnesota to visit with Erik’s family the same weekend. You’ll quickly notice, the evening light was dreamy and the tones in their outfits complimented the scenery perfectly.
Erik and Jennifer met online, much like Troy and I did. They had their first date at a brewery and the rest is history. For Jennifer’s birthday, Erik planned a trip to Key West. Immediately following their check in at their bed and breakfast, he proposed. They were able to chill and celebrate their engagement for the entirety of their trip. To me, that sounds romantic.
During their time together, they love experimenting with new food and drink recipes. They are fellow foodies who love Thai food, tacos, and charcuterie. Honestly, we hope to head to Minnesota in the near future. Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll show us a few of their favorite restaurants. I asked them for a list and they left me drooling. Sorry, I dragged you into this and now we’re both sitting here hungry.
Door County Engagement Session at Cave Point
We began our session in Cave Point at the popular Devil’s Bathtub. It was crowded however, everyone was sweet and gave us the space we craved. We swiftly photographed the first few images and moved to a less popular spot down the trail. Erik & Jennifer even got a few congratulations wished to them along the way.
Watching our footing as to not take a spill into one of the many sink holes. We stopped at several spectacular locations along the shore. The last one was my absolute favorite. I fell in love with the way these two interact with each other and the sunlight as it dipped below the tree line and onto the water. As the sun grew closer to the horizon we headed to Portage Park for the second half of Erik & Jennifer’s session. Where they popped open a bottle of champagne and watched the sunset. Afterwards, we chatted for a good long time. Joking about the fact Erik and I seemed to be dangerous children and the fact that he is okay with not having a single goat in any of his wedding photos, lol. We are looking forward to celebrating with this sweet couple next August at the historic Hope Glen Farm.
With that, I leave you with these romantic photographs documented along the stunning Lake Michigan lakeshore. These photos are seriously what engagement session dreams are made of.
