Marta and Skylar first met at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay in a choir class they shared. They had noticed each other a couple times so when Skylar needed some extra people for an intramural flag football game, he asked Marta to join in. From there the two became great friends and it was not until a couple years later did they start a romantic relationship. Marta fondly remembers the evening where she started realizing Skylar was the one for her. “After being friends for years, we had been through a lot. Countless laughs, millions of apartments, one awkward (almost) dating experience, one strange foot rub, and an unexplainable connection. It was a strange mix of fate, luck, and great conversation that set us on our path one night and it just made sense.”
The two seamlessly transitioned from friends to dating. Marta worked for a traveling children’s theater where her troop would go into cities all around the world and put on amazing productions for all the people living there. Throughout the entire time, Skylar would write and call her. He would even write songs and send them to her. Their connection grew and by the time Marta returned to Wisconsin to stay, they both knew they wanted to create a home together.
While the two were on vacation in Florida, they visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios where Skylar thought it would be the perfect place to propose. During the Fantasia Firework show, he pulled out the ring and asked Marta to be his wife! She started shaking and crying but could still let out a “yes!” The other wonderful Disney guests took plenty photos for the lovely couple and cheered for them the whole time!
For their Engagement Session, we chose to photograph at the beautiful Kohler Andrae State Park! The sandy beach and the lovely waves complimented the laid back and fun-loving energy of Marta and Skylar. We finished our shoot by visiting the beautiful boardwalk right by Breaker Bay. We strolled alongside the water and even saw the Italian restaurant where Marta and Skylar went on their first date. Marta seriously loves ice cream so we just had to stop at South Pier Parlor for a sundae and a milk shake to celebrate a great session!
Thanks so much to Jessica Rondinelli of Anagen Eleven for Marta’s beautiful hair and make-up!
