You can't spend time with these two and leave without a ginormous goofy smile on your face. They have so much joy to share and it spreads everywhere they go -- and it's WONDERFUL to be around! Thankfully I don't need to wait much more than 2 months to see (and photograph!) them again on their wedding day. It will be a New Years Eve celebration to top them all!! :)
Sometimes the hardest part of my job is narrowing down my favorites for a blog post. Rough life, right?! Sheena & Nick opted to have me travel up to Duluth and beyond for their north shore engagement session, and I am just so happy to have done so!! Their photos make me weak in the knees and their love is so incredibly sweet... It was such fun spending a long afternoon with them, photographing their love in equally lovely places. Have I told you lately that I love my job?! ;)
Man, I love couples. I love learning what makes them tick, I love watching how they interact, how their personalities mesh together. It's amazing to me how different we all are yet we can all find that one person who just GETS you. How beautiful is that?! I got to capture that relationship for Shanna & Henry earlier in the winter (I can't quite get over the fact that I can't say "earlier this year" now that it's 2016!!) and now I wanted to share some of my favorites from their session with you all! Their wedding is taking place at a favorite venue of mine, Minneapolis Event Centers, this coming June and I am so excited to capture it all for them!
The word 'obsessed' doesn't quite sum up my feelings toward this session!! Bauhaus Brew Labs made for the perfect setting for Carri & Sam -- two lovers of beer and brewery-hopping -- providing perfection through both bright colors AND bright light. We wrapped up their session over at Boom Island Park where gorgeous golden light made everything perfect. I was over-the-moon during this shoot to not only have such an awesome and personable venue for this incredible couple, but to also see my dear old high school friend so happy in her love. Is this where I break out the super embarrassing old photos from Jr. High and High School that I am SURE I have around?! We'll see about that. ;) (In all reality... those should never be seen again, so don't count on it) So for now, enjoy this ridiculously sweet engagement session of a super stellar couple:
Yes, I know these two are painfully adorable together. Save some cuteness for the rest of us, wouldja N&T?! I'm so in love with this session and with this couple and sometimes it's just painful to know that I only have their wedding day left to spend with them, because I just want to photograph them together all of the time and hang around them because they are just a joy to be around. I truly love my couples and I'm so grateful that I have a job in which I get to meet such amazing people!! But I'll spare you from more sappy words -- enjoy the sweetness that is Noelle & Thomas:
Betsy and Phillip met with me in St. Paul a couple of weeks ago on a chilly Friday evening for their engagement photos at the always-beautiful Rice Park. It's the perfect setting for a winter session when you're surrounded by golden twinkle lights at dusk! SO romantic and so very perfect!! Their love is beautiful and their laughter is abundant and it couldn't make me any happier to get to work with these two awesome people. Their wedding is this September, and I can't wait for that day to come!! Until then, let's all bask in their adorableness, shall we? Scroll on!
