This is a test shoot I’ve had in my mind for a while. I wanted to do sort of an American road trip shoot… my original vision was a little more route 66 and a little less county-road-Minnesota, but ’til I have time to travel, Minnesota will have to do! Rather than talk about the background and thought that went into this shoot, I really want to talk about my fabulous model, Jill. Many of my clients may recognize Jill as my summer intern. See how incredibly beautiful Jill is? Well her personality, drive, creativity, skill, and work ethic totally match. This girl is literally the total package. I was so grateful to have Jill around over the summer and I’m just not the same without her. Jill is finishing up her last semester of college in Wisconsin and I know she is going to go on to do AMAZING things! (And hopefully come by the studio from time to time.) We also happen to be cousins, so it’s not like I’m losing Jill forever- don’t feel too bad for me! I knew Jill and her trooper-of-a-boyfriend, Taylor, had the perfect All-American look for my shoot. Thank you guys so much for bringing my vision to life!
Also, a big, huge thanks to my hometown neighbors, Jon and Peg at Belle Plaine Auto Body for lending us their sweet 70s station wagon!
The entire shoot was shot on medium format film, Fuji Pro 400H.
Crystal is a friend and fellow photographer, so I was super excited when she asked me to capture a session with her and her boyfriend, just for fun. There doesn’t have to be a reason for a photo session with your signifcant other! Crystal looked gorgeous and styled their session beautifully. LOVE!
Have I ever mentioned that I have the best, most fun clients? Amy & Garret are no exception! Their entire engagement session was a blast and they had me cracking up the whole time. A&G even endured killer mosquitos for the sake of photos… seriously, the worst mosquitos I have ever experienced. Other than that, the session was too much fun! Enjoy the images of this beautiful couple!
I love this couple! Just looking at their pictures makes me smile. Natalie & Dan are too much fun and such good sports. Natalie wanted lots of color in their engagement photos, so we hit up a few different locations and utilized lots of fun props and styling. I’m only posting a small portion of their session for now… more to come!
