Should you bring your puppy to your engagement shoot?! The answer is always a YES! Oh my gosh, not only am I obsessed with Katelyn & Ben and their playful love, but you add in their new puppy Bowie too!? This downtown Minneapolis engagement session stole my heart.
Hello, models! I love when I have a photo shoot with a couple that needs hardly any direction because their connection with one another is just THAT good! That was totally Lizzie and Austin! I’d start by getting them into position, then just let them make each other smile, giggle, kiss, etc. all on their own. I love how authentic these photos feel because of it! These two spend a lot of time at the restaurants in Wayzata, so they opted for this location for their engagement shoot. However, we shot on one of the warmest days of summer and the beach was PACKED with people! I shoot downtown Wayzata often, but we were forced to switch it up a bit in order to have the fewest people in the background of our photos as possible. Love the variety that we were able to capture. Do these two not look like they should be in a JCrew catalog?!
What do you get when you mix two Chicago-based cuties and my favorite St. Paul location?! Magic!! Meet Taylor and Johnny! These two are Chicago-based and came in town for our engagement photos together. We had the perfect summer evening for their session. Since these two aren’t from the area, I have them some suggestions and they landed on the gorgeous Como Lakeside Pavillion and Como Conservatory because they’ll be getting married on Lake Como in Wisconsin next summer! Keeping with the Como theme 🙂 They have an amazing chemistry and I can’t wait for their wedding next summer.
