Although I love all my couples, this engagement session was a little more special than the others. See, it is one of my long time friends. We go back to early college days, when life was all about what outfit I am going to wear tonight or who is going to pay for the cab? Since then, life has led us in different directions, but the one thing that will always remain is our friendship.
I haven’t had much time to get to know Rob, but after spending a few short hours with him during the frigid cold engagement shoot it was obvious he was a great guy. I‘ve known Erin for a while and even in our “whooping days” as my husband would call them her girlfriends never made her laugh and smile the way he did.
Erin, I am so beyond happy you have found the love of your life. Rob, you are a very lucky man and I can already see that you will take good care of our precious Erin.
Congratulations you two!
Take one born and bred east coast girl, add one midwestern mama’s boy and you have one excited photographer. Emotional and personality contrast make for beautiful, passionate photos and these were no exception. Despite the contrast they share some type A characteristics (see extremely organized shoot agenda) which certainly made for a streamlined and stress free shoot and the photos reflect that. What you wouldn’t have guessed from first impressions and personality characteristics was that these two would be so much fun.
Josh made the cut and then some. Maggie had told him at the outset of their relationship that she would not meet his family until he had passed the one-month milestone. That month passed, and so did other months and not only did he meet that family, they will be calling him their son in short order. Josh wasn’t the only one with challenges to meet. Maggie had to endure the tortures of a hockey crazed, cold arena dwelling Minnesota man…….she made it, too. They made it.
She embraced his world so completely and so graciously that their engagement was highlighted with Skipper blue and that participation of one of the Minnetonka girls hockey players. Maggie trudged unknowingly, in stiletto heels of all things, towards the Excelsior docks where her future waited on bended knee
Congratulations Maggie & Josh!
Outdoor weddings, really if the weather cooperates there is nothing better! Marissa & Blake took that chance at the beautiful Historic Hope Glen Farm a couple weeks ago, despite the little chill in the air and tiny sprinkle of rain, the day could not have been more perfect! Although Marissa and I didn’t officially meet until close to their actual wedding day, I knew we would get along because we both love Christmas and the movie Elf! As a wedding photographer, it’s important to make these personal and VERY IMPORTANT connections! It was here the two exchanged vows in front of their closest family and friends. The details were amazing and the couple, absolutely sweet.
Congratulations Marissa & Blake!
