These two are adventurers who were hungry to explore, so I took them to the Landmark Center and spent some amazing time getting to know the two of them while climbing stair upon stair in that great, gorgeous building. A little later we hit up one of my favorite spots -- Hidden Falls Park -- to get our toes wet and capture their love in one of the most beautiful parks in the Twin Cities. We laughed, we got sand in our shoes, and we even found a morel mushroom! Above all, I learned how these two love each other and it was a beautiful thing to witness. See for yourself:
I love every. single. thing. about this session!! Jess and Ben are the fourth couple in an AMAZING group of friends who I have had the insane pleasure of photographing the weddings of over the last few years! Each and every one of them are awesome people, and let me tell you -- these two are no exception. They are warm-hearted, funny, loving people and together they make a fabulous pair. Their August wedding seems too far away to wait to see them again!! Also: I want all of their clothing. These two know how to put together outfits. Hellooooo, models!!
Do you guys remember, waaayyyyyyy back when, when the sun was warm and the leaves were full of amazing color? Fall wasn't all that long ago, but it sure feels like it when I look out my window at all this snow! I needed a reminder of warmth today, so I'm pulling out this session and sharing it with you all! These two are the cutest and I'm super excited to share a peek into their awesome autumn engagement session. Does it get any more FALL than an apple orchard e-sesh?! I don't think so! Sara & Jordan have a favorite orchard that they've visited multiple times together over the years, and that's pretty much the perfect reason to have a session there if you ask me! These are two incredibly sweet people, with a perfectly simple love that I admire so much. Get ready to feel some warm fuzzies after looking through their photos!
These two... I mean REALLY. I am not sure I'll ever get over the adorableness of this shoot!! Bridget and Eric wanted their session to be done in their "happy place" -- a family lake home in the darling little town of Luck, Wisconsin. Fall colors were at their peak and I had the most beautiful drive out there, only to be greeted by the smiling faces of this sweet couple offering me hot chocolate topped with marshmallows. Top THAT off with an engagement session drenched in golden sunlight and tons of laughter, and I am the happiest girl on the planet!! B&E are my new BFFs. I wish there were more legit excuses to hang out with my clients. ;)
October has been treating me really well, you guys... and this session is proof of that!! Angela & Tyler have free reign of a berry farm out in Anoka and we spent a couple of hours exploring (well, I guess I was the one exploring...) the area and having a blast taking photos of them together in the gorgeous sunset. Love, love, love. These two are getting married here in January and I am so looking forward to winter photos in such a gorgeous place! Take a look for yourself:
I don't know whether I can come up with the right words to properly explain the amount of love and glamour that Elisa & Pino's wedding had. I have LOVED spending time with Elisa & Pino over the past few months and getting to know the incredibly genuine, kind, loving, people that they are. They welcome you with love and open arms from the very moment you meet them, and it doesn't fade over any extended amount of time. Their wedding day was a perfect reflection of exactly who they are, and I had the most difficult time narrowing this post down!! So here we go -- these are just a few of my favorite moments from E&P's beautiful wedding at the historic St. James Hotel in Red Wing. Enjoy!! ♥
