Lauren & Tom | Bald Man Brewing Engagement

Getting to work with siblings of past couples is one of the most amazing feelings that comes with this job of mine. It is so incredibly awesome to get to know another couple within a family that you've already connected with, and knowing that I get to look forward to seeing some of my favorite past faces (ahem, here's looking at you Bridget & Eric) gets me seriously giddy! Lauren and Tom are the best of the best kind of people, and you can't help but be happy when you're around them. One day I received an email with the opening line that stated: "Ok Krista I think you are going to LOVE ME right now!!!!" and Lauren proceeds to let me know that she's convinced her favorite local brewery to let us in on a day that they are closed so that we can take their engagement photos without anyone around.... at that moment, I not only knew I had hit the client jackpot, but that I was the luckiest photographer around. Their wedding day cannot come soon enough - I can't WAIT to watch their day unfold and be surrounded by their joy!!

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! :)
