The Spring Green Preserve serves as a stunning backdrop for engagement photos, an anniversary shoot, or even an outdoor date night. Known as the 'Wisconsin Desert', the location features a rolling sand prairie on an old Wisconsin River terrace and harbors a unique flora and fauna that are adapted to the hot, droughty environment. 

Inspired by the unique, arid landscape and golden fall color, the preserve served as the starting point for this anniversary styled photoshoot. Celebrating an intimate anniversary, the couple was surrounded by a sea of golds and yellow, which added to a gorgeous autumn aesthetic. Velvet Rentals provided a romantic setup complete with a vintage picnic basket. See how you can incorporate your own personality and style into stunning photos at this jaw-dropping location, and look below for some inspiration!
