Minneapolis engagement photos – Katie and Luke

Look – you might not get photos with your sweetie very often. In fact, I hope that when you travel, you spend so much time enjoying your adventures that you only come home with a few photos together. But getting married is a big deal! And there will be so many moving parts on your wedding day -constraints of time and clothing and locations and families. Engagement photos show more about what all the other days together are like. For Katie and Luke, the perfect engagement session definitely involved bringing their pup and a little champagne picnic while we had…

Minneapolis Engagement Photo Ideas – Pui and Wei

Minneapolis Engagement Photo Ideas when your wedding is elsewhere I usually photograph engagement portraits when I work with a couple on their wedding photography. The engagement photos can be a great way to get to know your photographer, and for me to get to know you. But they should be much more than a job interview – they should but a pin into a specific time in your life and document it, capture a tiny slice of it to share. So Pui and Wei will have their wedding ceremony across the world, but their shared life started here, in Minneapolis,…

Rainy Minneapolis Engagement – Yibai and Lee

When life hands you rain, you make rainy Minneapolis engagement portraits. Or, much more poetically: Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. Langston Hughes So, yeah, sometimes adventure means a bit of rain. And then, it is not enough to make it work – it is not enough to play with an umbrella and show off the droplets. You must embrace it and enjoy it. An unexpected rain storm is perhaps the most fun part of the adventure of engagement photos. So thank you,…

Stacy and Wyatt – Minneapolis Engagement Photos with Puppy

There are few things as remarkable as having people choose to work with you again. Because it means that despite the lure of novelty, the modern pull to constant innovation at all costs, there is something authentic and honest about what I do. At least, that is my hope. So when Stacy asked if I could photograph her engagement to Wyatt, I was doubly thrilled. Thrilled because I love engagement portraits, but also because I’ve documented the wedding of 2 of Stacy’s sisters, so Stacy has seen my work, and how I work, and lived with it for years, and…

Minneapolis fall engagement photos – Katie and Jake

Here are some numbers you should know about Katie and Jake’s Minneapolis fall engagement photos: There were 2 giant dogs, a 60 image panorama of the Minneapolis skyline, and 2 totally happy people. You can’t always plan for perfect weather, for happy (though perhaps also very energetic) dogs, for a nice dusk, but you can plan for it to be fun, and luckily the rest just followed. I’m so excited for Katie and Jake’s wedding this summer! The puppies won’t be there, but a few photos of them might make it in.

Minneapolis Ferris Wheel Engagement Photos – Ava and Alex

A fear of heights and Ferris wheel engagement photos So, planning engagement photos makes some people anxious. I totally understand, most adults have not have had formal portraits taken since high school or maybe for a work ID. Even if those were pretty good experiences, they were probably not meaningful and fun. So I like to assure couples thinking about engagement photos that taking photos with your sweetie can be fun: it can be as enjoyable and easy as a nice walk, or a quick bite. Sure, I will be there, but I’ll handle my end of the conversation just…

Minneapolis Engagement Photos in Winter – Downtown Minneapolis – Dhaval and Sneha

On Minneapolis Engagement photos and finding the joy in getting outside in Winter: It is easy to hibernate in winter in Minneapolis – to let the inertia of being in a warm house with wool socks on keep you from putting on your boots and living an outside life. Part of that cozy warmth is what marks the winter as a season, but the constant fight against the call of the warm comforter to just stay in bed a little longer is a real fight. Dhaval and Sneha have fought the good fight this year – getting engaged, planning their wedding (in…
