Brittney + Nate’s dreamy golden hour Pettibone Park engagement session in La Crosse, WI was too beautiful to describe with words! Brittney met Nathan when they were in middle school. Nate refers to her as the girl who broke his heart in 8th grade. Thankfully their story didn’t end there!!
We met in downtown La Crosse just before the sunset. I love how Brittney’s white dress and Nathan’s blue shirt and pants popped against the warm buildings. These two had SO much joy during their engagement session. Brittney’s smile just glows and shines through the photos. Once the sun was starting to paint the sky a dreamy golden, we headed to Pettibone Park. Pettibone was beautifully quiet! I have so much love for these summer engagement sessions! The sun hitting the trees is just so romantic 🙂
Ok, so you’re probably wondering why Nate said that Brittney broke his heart…well, it was because she didn’t want to date him in 8th grade. They met at a function put on by family friends, and he noticed her right away. They knew one another throughout middle school and high school, but never did date during those years. It wasn’t until after graduation and after Nathan joined the Marine Corps. Nathan had moved to California and was back home visiting. This is when they really began to get to know each other better and Brittney finally said yes to dating Nathan.
The majority of their relationship has been long distance, with Brittney in Wisconsin and Nathan in California. They love to spend time together in California and Brittney visits Nathan whenever she can. The beach is a special spot for them, so I am so happy we were able to grab a few photos at Pettibone Park’s beach. In fact, it was on the beach that Nathan proposed and asked Brittney to be his wife. We cannot wait to celebrate with these two as they become husband and wife next August at Pedretti Party Barn.
Enjoy our favorites from this Pettibone Park La Crosse Engagement Session!
