Earlier this week I met up with Kenzie and Phil for their engagement session. Kenzie booked me for their wedding via email so this was the first time I was meeting them in person. It’s always a little nerve-wracking to meet a client for the first time in person after they’ve booked you. You know, will they laugh with me or at me (I don’t care either way, so long as they laugh!), will they think I’m weird, does the bride love all the Housewives shows as much as I do? You know, the important things. Thankfully these two are super awesome and a ton of fun! I’m really looking forward to their wedding because I know there is going to be a lot of laughter! Here are a few of my favorites from their session…


** This post will stay at the top until May 4th. New posts will be underneath this one.

Last weekend I met up with Jenni and Michael in Minneapolis for their engagement session! It was so fun to go someplace totally new and photograph around different backdrops then I’m used to. One thing that can be scary about this for me, is I have to rely a bit on the couple to choose locations since I’m not familiar with the area. Thankfully Jenni and Michael are really awesome and chose great locations!! We started off at a higher end cooking store called Cooks of Crocus Hill in St. Paul. These two love to cook and love wine so this was a great place to start. Then we headed to a lake and a cool bridge at the country club that Michael is a member of. Check out a few of my faves….
