I think you have figured out by now, that I love taking pictures of people. It's kinda my thang. And some may say I am pretty good at it. Something that makes me better at what I do is shooting in new places. I love being put in completely new surroundings and finding the beauty in this new place. That was what I did with Kalie and Chris's engagement shoot. They met on campus at Gustavus Adolphus, in the cafeteria. What better place to shoot their portraits than at the scene of the crime? So off we went to gorgeous St. Peter. Kalie and Chris showed me around the campus and showed me some of the spots where they lived and went to class. Then we headed to the downtown area of St. Peter after a quick outfit change and found a bunch of great new places to take some pictures. And then we topped it off with Blizzards for the drive home. YUM!!
It's a super sweet engagement session! Full posting coming in a few!
Have you seen the super funky and punky wedding blog, "Rock N Roll Bride"? If you are looking to plan a wedding that is outside of the box and covered in tattoos, this would be the site for you. Kat features badass couples with badass weddings. Way cool! And she just recently featured the great engagement session of Lisa and Jeff! Check it out!!
When Jen and Jason first came over for their consultation, I immediately liked them. They were totally cute and stylish, had an adorable dog, and Jen's dad was a wedding photographer, so they were pretty educated on the subject of photography. They definitely wanted to do their engagement photos in October because they LOVED the fall. A perfect couple-photographer match for me! October finally came and it was not the fall we were hoping for. It snowed and the high temp for the day was 35 degrees. Really?!? But we all agreed that we should just go for it and we did. We hit up the Guthrie Theater to stay warm for the 1st half, then ventured out to the Stone Arch area with Miss Violet the poochie for the 2nd half. Even though we froze our booty's off, I am IN LOVE with this session!! So much fun! I am not sure which one I like more....this one... or this one...? Violet! Rocking the house!! My fav So sweet!
