Chelsea & Eric | Bauhaus Brew Labs Engagement

Chelsea (a.k.a. 'Fitzy' forever in my mind) was a good friend of mine back in my glorious gymnastics days. We'd spend 4+ days a week giggling, tumbling, and learning insane skills alongside our awesome teammates. It was an incredibly huge part of my life, and those girls I spent all that time with will always mean a lot to me and my childhood. When Fitzy reached out to me about photographing her winter wedding in Stillwater, I danced in my chair and and got crazy excited at the chance to see her again after all these years. Spending time with her and Eric (and of course, their pup Silvia) was a blast, and I love seeing the love and comfort that my old friends have found in their adult lives - my job is quite literally the coolest!! I'm SO excited for these two and even more excited that I get to spend this time with them and capture their relationship! These two are super cute, so prepare for your cheeks to hurt after browsing their engagement sesh! :) 

Kathryn & John | Minneapolis Engagement at the Copper Hen

If I had the power to make the weather do my bidding (which, believe me, as a photographer I wish this every single day), I would have made this winter engagement session look EXACTLY like this!! A fresh and fluffy snowfall that piles onto the branches of trees, the lightest flakes falling during photos, and not even the slightest breeze to make it feel even colder than it already was... this winter session was perfection. Spending time with this fabulous pair of people brings it to another level -- I had the pleasure of photographing their proposal late last fall and now I get to follow their journey into marriage while capturing all the best moments in between!! Their engagement photos are a new favorite of mine and topping it all off with drinks and desserts at The Copper Hen was the blueberry on top of a perfect bacon cupcake. See for yourself! :)

Erica & Chris Engaged

I truly couldn't have asked for a more beautiful night with this sweet couple!! That golden light makes me swoon -- add in one of my favorite locations and a stunning couple and I am totally in love!! Luckily, I don't have to wait too long to photograph these two again because their wedding is less than TWO weeks!! For now, you'll have to be content with seeing Erica in this gorgeous white dress until the real one comes into play!! :)

Chelsie & Mike Engaged

Holy cow I love this session!! Spring trees were in full bloom, Chelsie & Mike were so easy and so natural to work with, and we had the most beautiful evening with stunning colors that resulted in this drop-dead-gorgeous engagement session. The laughter was abundant and I'm already anxious to have their wedding come around this fall to experience it all again with them!!
