Tristyn + Craig | Sunset Love at Minnehaha Falls - Minneapolis, MN Engagement Photographer

Tristyn + Craig. When you meet these two, you instantly fall in love with them. Our engagement adventure was filled with giggles, hugs, a victorious ROCKY dance, stolen kisses, and so much JOY. Not to mention the most incredible golden sunset light!! Hard to believe that their relationship survived years and thousands of miles of long-distance and FaceTime dates, flights back and forth, and kisses goodbye. But their love and friendship was steadfast. These two are SO excited to finally be married — and be in the same place forever!

They met back in high school while attending a church retreat and hit it off as friends. They kept in touch throughout the rest of high school and college, but then lost touch for a few years. Tristyn had a crush on Craig, but….Craig was oblivious to it.

They reconnected after Craig reached out to Tristyn during a personal health battle and Craig wanted to check in on his friend. They conversed on and off for about a year until one day when Craig took Tristyn up on a half serious offer to come fly out to visit her out East. By the end of the trip, they discovered a connection and decided to date long distance.

The weekend that Craig proposed, they took a weekend trip up to Duluth, as Tristyn had never been there. While at Gooseberry Falls, Craig led Tristyn out to a little ledge that looked out over Lake Superior. Tristyn thought something might be happening, especially as Craig started reaching into his pocket, but he only came out with his phone (Craig had managed to slip out a ring as well). Tristyn turned away to take a picture of the sunset and when she turned back around, there was Craig on one knee with the ring. She said YES! and the rest was history!

Can’t wait to celebrate with these lovebirds at the Minneapolis Golf Club this spring!
