Now, Lauren just might be my first bride who I’ve known the longest and go waaaaay back. I think maybe all the way to kindergarten?! We were neighbors when we were really little, my sister was her and her brother’s babysitter and we went through a majority of our schooling together…along with knowing both of her wonderful parents throughout the years!! Phew! So, needless to say, I was thrilled when she emailed me and said her and Michael were looking for a wedding photographer!! It was so fun to grab coffee with them, get to know them as a couple and of course…plan out the engagement session. If you follow along on the blog, and have learned anything about me in the last week, you’ll know I love fall engagement sessions, and was so excited when they said they wanted to make sure to get their fall color fix in their session! And gosh, we sure did. We ventured around the Loring Greenway and ended up venturing over the beautiful Walker and sculpture gardens…I am over the moon with their photos, and most of all love seeing their love and laughter come through in such beautiful ways! I can’t wait to be part of their day next August!!
Oh my goodness, where to begin with Claire and Nate, I don’t even know!! These two are the most joyful and lovely people you have ever met, and their love for each other was literally bursting through EVERY PHOTO. We started our morning off at Spyhouse to actually meet one another and chat a bit before beginning our session. They shared their story, and they opened up their hearts and gosh, I feel like we go way back already! We then ventured to one of my favorite parks, and is seriously in my top two after this session because the colors there in the fall were truly some of the most beautiful I’ve seen all year. Minnesota did good this fall, yes?! I think we spent about 3 hours at the park, chatting, snapping photos and having a blast. I couldn’t be more thrilled to share all the beautiful moments we caught that morning with you all, and I REALLY can’t wait to be part of their wedding next summer!!
