MOLLY & STEVE | LAKESIDE ENGAGEMENT

Congrats to Molly & Steve!!  I met this gorgeous couple on the perfect summer evening for an engagement session.  It was one of those nights where there is no place on earth you’d rather be than enjoying the beautiful lakes of Minnesota.  The couple chose two special spots for their session- both of their home neighborhoods.  Molly lives on the river on St Anthony Main and Steve lives on Lake Minnetonka.  They love the water, and for their session, it was the perfect mix of city and nature.  Molly and Steve will tie the knot in 2016, and I’ll be waiting (im)patiently for their big day!!

KIRSTIN & BRAD | WALKER ART CENTER

Kirstin & Brad and their wonderful families hosted a classic and an elegant affair at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Though it was stormy with bouts of down-pouring rain, the day was perfect and filled with touching moments from start to finish. Prior to the wedding day, I hadn’t met the couple in person, but Kirstin had told me that Brad was “an absolutely stunning individual (on the inside and out),” and honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Truly one of the sweetest, kindest grooms, with a bride to match. They’re a perfect pair and I couldn’t be happier for this couple as they begin their married life together.
