Staring Lake Park Engagement Photographer ~ Eden Prairie Engagement Photographer ~ Elaine and Mark’s Engagement Session

Elaine and Mark’s Engagement Session

Staring Lake Park Engagement Photographer

Eden Prairie Engagement Photographer

Elaine and Mark wanted their engagement session to feel really natural.  A lot more interaction and not a whole lot of eye contact with the camera.  I absolutely LOVED this idea!  I like to feel like my sessions look natural and not overly posed so it was a great opportunity to be able to showcase this.  Staring Lake Park has become one of my new favorite places as an Eden Prairie Engagement Photographer, it has so many different scene options and it’s in the middle of the city.  Who would have ever thought?!

Brittany and Micah are one of the most adorable couples! I know that it can be intimidating when there is a camera photographing, but these two were amazing! They are so comfortable and content together that it wasn’t hard to bring that out to show. When I asked them to kiss, I could tell instantly that these two were truly and madly in love. Their chemistry is undeniable! The location at Ritter Farm Park was great for an engagement session, the greenery and fall colors were really coming in. We couldn’t have asked for a better day or weather!

I have quickly become friends with Rob and Jessica, they are such a fun couple to be around.  They are upbeat, love to joke and always wanted to incorporate in photographs, the fact there is an obvious height difference! Another quirk that these two have is what they do for date night, they head to Target!  That’s right people, this model couple is no different than any other couple.  Rob is a closet romantic, I don’t know if he would even admit it.  I noticed it through the little things he did for Jessica and also the way he treats her.  When he proposed to her, he said her name in entirety and then asked if she would put up with him for the rest of her life. Of course, Jess said “yes”!

I have shot many weddings as a Minneapolis Marriott Southwest wedding photographer, and each one I fall in love with again.  It is such a hidden gem of a hotel, the staff is always accommodating.  Another amazing perk to this hotel is the beautiful ballrooms!

Threshers Wedding

Maggie and Will have been together for quite some time, over nine years!  A lot can happen in nine years, including a wonderful addition to their relationship in their son, Oliver.  When Will proposed to Maggie, there were A LOT of roses involved.  Will had a plan when Maggie arrived home from work, it was like a scavenger hunt, and what she kept finding was dozens and dozens of roses.  When she arrived at the final “finding place” Will was waiting for her.  He was so excited that he popped the question immediately! I always ask people what they love most about the other, and Will and Maggie had so many amazing things to say about each other.  These two are clearly meant to be, they are each other’s missing puzzle pieces!

This was my first time as a Scott County Threshers Wedding Photographer, and I had a great time! I have grown up attending the Thresher’s Bee and I have never seen it transformed into such a wonderful place- and for a wedding!

 In Home Session

Being a newborn photographer is such a joy for me!  I love to see new little humans forming their features and personalities.  Jackson’s Daddy was in the military and is a Officer, so we wanted to make sure to include that in the session.  Also, another little touch was the big panda. When Jackson’s Mommy and Daddy didn’t know the gender, they called him “Panda”. I absolutely love how it looks like the panda is holding him!

I love the little knit newborn outfits, and Amazon is great for them (and everything, really).

Golden Oak Farm Wedding Photographer ~ Webster ~ Toni & Eli’s Wedding Photography

 Webster

Eli and Toni are such a fun couple to be around, Toni is a bit shy but when Eli is around, her personality shines.  He definitely brings out the best in her, and her whole face just lights up. One of the quirkiest aspects of their relationship is that they do “little kid” things together to fill their time; paint by number, and playing with clay. Toni said that when Eli proposed to her, it was just like out of a Disney movie.  There were birds chattering, geese nesting, deer, baby ducklings and a beautiful lake.  They were having a great time after a casual date night (Toni’s favorite kind of date), and Eli grabbed her hand, whirled her around (I can only imagine a Disney Princess whirl), knelt down and asked her to marry him.  I think these two definitely got their happily ever after!

Prior Lake

I have known Terry and Karen for many years, and what a way to celebrate 40 years of marriage! I have done several session at the club before, but it’s always great to return to be a Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club Wedding Photographer. This was such a great event to be a part of, and I can’t get enough of that cake!! Karen had the bakery – Old Town Coffee Saloon, replicate their wedding cake, and it was quite a sight.

One of my favorite parts of wedding photography is the details, details, details, and Karen did not leave any out.  The centerpieces, the candy bar, the potato bar, all of it was beautiful and tasted amazing! Terry has been the manager at the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club for many years, so it was a perfect place for them to renew their vows.  One idea that Robyn, their daughter came up with, and I LOVED was recreating photos from their wedding. I definitely added to their special day, and side by side, they haven’t aged a day 😉
