Menomonee Park – Lannon, WI

Menomonee Park is located in the small village of Lannon, Wisconsin, and the home of Lannon Quarry. The quarry is encircled by a drivable road and walking path. Along this walking path, you will have a variety of locations to choose from for your engagement portrait session. The beach at Lannon Quarry, while not large in size does host beautiful sunrises.

Richfield Historical Society – Richfield, WI

Richfield Historical Society in Richfield, Wisconsin is one of my favorite locations because of the huge variety of backdrops available. The northern section of the park has rustic red barns, a wooden bridge, and a gravel road through large trees. In the middle of Richfield Historical Society, you’ll find a shallow stream, a thicker forest, and grassy areas. A few of my adventurous clients have walked even into the stream for fun photos on a warm summer night. The southern end of the park is home to old world cabins, a “Sugar Shack”, open fields, and an observation deck overlooking the nature park.
