These two just make my heart melt. I adore every time I get to spend a moment with them, and their wedding this fall (ahem... at a pizza barn... because they are MY PEOPLE!) really can't come soon enough.
Why is Minneapolis so amazing?! Actually, scratch that - why are Bri and Ryan so amazing?! I love getting to know my couples through engagement sessions, and I also love that it allows me to explore everything that this beautiful city (and state!) has to offer. I absolutely loved photographing these two, and you might want to hang tight because in a short 11 months I'll be capturing their I Do's on an island in the Caribbean... and you probably don't want to miss that, either!! How do I get so lucky?!
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! :)
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!!
This stunning couple's engagement session really deserves TWO blog posts, but sometimes I need to restrain myself. :) With crazy schedules, short winter days, and the desire for multiple locations, Sarah & Andrew ended up having two separate mini engagement sessions to cover everything we wanted to do! By the time Part 2 came around, the snow had melted and we somehow ended up with one of the most gorgeous sunny March days -- which basically means they totally lucked out with covering two different seasons in their engagement session! Gosh I love Minnesota. :)
I'm pretty obsessed with this session and this couple, so I hope you all can enjoy this post as much as I do! Special thanks to Lakes and Legends Brewing Company for being so accommodating and having AWESOME beer to top it all off!! Love that space!
