Ashley and Justin spent an evening with me in the beautiful St. Anthony Main area of Minneapolis.  With its beautiful cobblestone, greenery and colorful architecture, it made the perfect backdrop for our session.  Nothing beats a cloudy day like a beautiful couple in love!

After enjoying some drinks and catching up on all things wedding, we strolled the neighborhood for a while and captured some incredibly sweet moments between these two lovebirds.  We even managed to find some twinkle lights (and there is no such thing as too many twinkle lights!!). 

Excited to celebrate with these two later this summer at the stunning Legacy Hill Farm.

Megan + Alec | North Loop + Mill Ruins Park Engagement Session - Minneapolis

When an engagement session begins with craft cocktails and a gourmet burger in the North Loop, it's going to win every time!  I always joke that engagement sessions are basically just fancy date nights with me as your personal paparazzi, glamour consultant and new BFF cracking endless punny jokes... it's so true though!

Megan and Alec's gorgeous sunset engagement session began in Minneapolis' North Loop at the fabulous Parlour Bar.  With some decadent "oh my gosh, almost too pretty to drink" signature craft cocktails and the infamous gooey + salty "Parlour Burger" (go get one NOW!), date night started off pretty spectacularly!  These two strutted the streets of Minneapolis with fashion on point (hello, Rent the Runway beauties!!) and the excitement of their December wedding building as we chatted through their plans for the big day.

Excited to celebrate with them this winter at the newly renovated Lumber Exchange in downtown Minneapolis!

Julia + Christian | Surprise Proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge - Minneapolis, MN

Sometimes, the best kept secret is the one you share with all of your friends!  Julia and Christian are college sweethearts whose friends banded together to help pull off the perfect sunset proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge. 

While Julia enjoyed a dinner date with her sorority sisters at the Aster Cafe, Christian and his buddies joined me at the Stone Arch Bridge to pull off the perfect proposal.  As the ladies departed the restaurant, they headed to the Stone Arch Bridge to take some photos "for recruitment" for their sorority... little did Julia know that all of her friends were in on the big secret! 

As they stopped to pose for a few photos, Christian sneaked up behind her with a beautiful heirloom engagement ring and the surprise on her face says it all!  He got down on one knee with the beautiful Minneapolis skyline behind them and asked her to marry him.  After a YES! and an endless stream of excited kisses, we snapped some portraits of the two of them and even made a pit stop at the famed Izzy's Ice Cream!

Congratulations, lovebirds!

(Fun fact:  Julia and I belong to the same sorority -- Kappa Alpha Theta at the University of Minnesota!  Small world!  #thetalove)
