Take a peek at The 608 Team Fall Family Photos!

One of the best parts of our job is the connections we get to form with our clients. Our clients truly become part of our family. We love the 608 community we’ve grown and get to be a part of. One of our favorite ways to celebrate our clients is by holding client events. We get to spend more time with the people we love. And they get to meet each other and become part of a greater community! We have so much fun coming up with ways to celebrate and spoil our clients.

Our team members get in on it when they can! L to R: Ellie, Dom (and little one coming soon), Jeff and his family, Melissa and her family!

2022 Fall Family Photos

This September, our clients joined us for our second annual Fall Family Photo event. They can bring their families, pups, and best friends to get a professional photo to use for holiday cards, wall art and more! We kicked off the event in 2021. We staged the photo spot outside our office, on the stairs with some beautiful mums serving as the backdrop.

This year, we upped our game even more by renting the most adorable backdrop from Velvet Rentals in Madison. Our Madison photographer, Morgan Madeleine Photography, joined us for the second year in a row. She spent the afternoon taking pictures of our families!

Rain was forecasted all day in the week leading up to our event, but we lucked out with sunny skies and mild September weather!

Our clients have also joined us for Badger Tailgates (our Regent Street office is so conveniently located near Camp Randall…tailgates are pretty much a given!), Mallard’s games, 608 Day celebrations and more!

Check out some of the adorable photos taken this year below!
