Maggie + Jon

I love the Twin Cities! What's better than visiting the Twin Cities, you might ask? Being hired to shoot my good friends' engagement session in the Twin Cities. DURING THE FALL!

I had so much fun with Maggie and Jon! (And not just because we cracked a cold beer before the shoot, haha.) I had never really explored Nicollet Island during my brief stint in Minnesota. In fact, I'm afraid to say I didn't even know it existed! Man, I really wish I did. It was such a beautiful little oasis in Minneapolis. From the photos, you would never know we shot this session in the middle of a bustling city. If I lived in the cities still, I might choose to take all of my family session there!

I hope you enjoy a few highlights from their session. It was such a treat to shoot photography with fall colors in the background... a nice break from island beaches!

So happy for you two, Maggie and Jon! Wishing you the best! :) 

Abby + Anselm

I can't describe the happiness I felt while photographing one of my oldest friend's engagements. How many cumulative years do teenage girls gush about who they're going to marry, where they'll live, what kind of job they'll have? M.A.S.H. anyone? As we all grow older, everything seems to fall into place... we find the work that challenges our mind and a love that feeds our soul.

I remember the day (in highschool!) that Abby met Anselm. Naturally, us teenage girls promptly gave him the appropriate nickname "Handsome Anselm." It would be a couple of years until the pieces all fell together but I like to think they knew early on. ;) They're perfect for each other!

It's an honor to stand in and photograph their wedding this next summer! I can't wait and I am going to try my hardest not to cry through the entire thing. I really am! It's going to be an amazing day!
