Sarah & Sam – engaged!

If when you look through these photos you think to yourself, “wow…  they look like a fun couple who would be fun to hang out with on a Saturday morning!”  Well, you’d be right!  I had the best time wandering around downtown St. Paul with Sarah and Sam, and cannot wait for their wedding this August.  They are easy going, funny, and very photogenic people.  Photographer WIN!  Enjoy the photos!

Madi & Mike| Minneapolis engagement

It was only fitting for Madi and Mike to request the engagement session be photographed on their home turf of Uptown in Minneapolis!   As music lovers, they had the brilliant idea of going into Cheapo to snap a few pics (Thank you, Cheapo!)

This couple does “fierce” really well. These are some of my favorites!

Madi called this next look her “Carrie Bradshaw” skirt – they dressed to perfection!

We had some gorgeous evening sunlight (which promptly disappeared under some clouds, but I am quite pleased we were able to capture some of these glowing photos!)

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of your wedding next February!!

Mekaela & Mike – Minneapolis engagement

The Stone Arch bridge area was a perfect setting for Mekaela and Mike’s engagement – in addition to being their neighborhood, it was also great for an early March session (you’d never know it was still the end of winter!)  We had a great evening walking around, talking, and taking some sweet pics.  I loved the outfits they chose – well styled, casual look.  Perfection.  Enjoy!

Emily & Tom Engagement

Emily and Tom had a lovely engagement session in the Linden Hills neighborhood in Minneapolis – it was SO cold, but they were great sports about it!  A big thank you to Tilia and Zumbro Café’s for being so incredibly kind for letting us shoot in their restaurants.  In addition to being significant spots for Emily and Tom, you provided us with some beautiful places to photograph and warm up!  :)

Ellen & Kristiaan’s winter engagement

I’m excited to share images from Ellen and Kristiaan’s snowy engagement session!  They wanted to photograph in Ellen’s neighborhood in Waconia, which was the perfect setting – very charming.  We started with walking out onto the frozen lake…


They suggested some sledding while I photographed – some of my favorites!  :)

This isn’t just any car… it’s Al Capone’s!!!

As you will see, a theme with winter engagement sessions, a stop in a café for some Chai Tea Latte’s and warming up. :)

We were able to take some photos in Ellen’s insanely gorgeous lake house (I was a little obsessed with it – so my style!)
