Happy Thursday all!!! The weather in MN/WI has been amazing over the past week – a girl could get used to mid 60′s to 70′s in March! There’s always a possibility of snow in June, so I’m taking the sunshine with a grain of salt, and ironically, it’s given me a little time and motivation to post some extremely overdue sessions. Win Win! Lots of fun, and possibly out of season sessions to come in the next few weeks!
Analisa and Brandon contacted me in mid December regarding their wedding with a caveat that they’d be in town the next week for a crazy whirlwind Christmas trip that consisted of crossing MN/WI border at least 4 times to fit in visits with family and friends and wanted to schedule an engagement session. I was so happy to be able to work something out during border crossing number 2(?) - and end up with an amazing winter day to boot! Proof that engagement sessions don’t always have to be scheduled during the warm months – all you need is a little love… and maybe a sister that doubles as a coat holder. Never hurts, anyhow. :)
Jill and Kyle’s engagement session was featured on A Northwoods Wedding today! Yay!!!
Jill and Kyle contacted me recently with the BEST idea – to focus an engagement session around winter, a camp fire, and some amazing s’mores, since they love the outdoors. Who would say no to that!~?!?! I love when my clients think out of the box – it makes for photos that are so much more personal to them, and hopefully something they’ll cherish for years to come. I have to admit, that little idea turned into one of my favorite engagement sessions ever – we started in Stillwater at a cozy cafe to hang out and relax a little, then ventured out to find some snow (not an easy feat this year despite being February in the Midwest!) Fortunately, I’ve got some pretty amazing tricks up my sleeve and great connections, so we found what could possibly have been the only snow in western Wisconsin that weekend. Jill and Kyle were so amazing – I LOVE this couple! As per usual with grooms, Kyle wasn’t so sure about engagement pics, but I have to say, he totally rocked it! I guess it’s not so hard to do after a cup of my now-famous hot cocoa and spending an afternoon keeping warm with the love of his life. :)
Note to viewers: don’t attempt snow angels in two inches of ice crusted snow… makes for super sweet photos, but apparently hurts like the dickens!!
