I met tons of fun and out going brides and grooms in February when I was out at the Plymouth Creek Wedding Expo. Vlad and Carmen were one of them! When they met me for the couple minutes walking by my booth, I knew we would be a great fit; I was ecstatic when they said they for sure wanted me to capture their memories! Vlad and Carmen wanted their engagement session in Minneapolis. They love the downtown skyline and the Stone Arch Bridge and so do I, We even walked across the Stone Arch Bridge to explore St.Anthony on main too.
I definitely had a first on this photography adventure. As we were walking down a heavily wooded gravel path, I thought I saw a cat run across the path. Nope! It was a big fat beaver!! Seriously, I could have reached out and touched it if I wanted to! It was just chomping along on leaves, not a care in the world we were there. Towards the end of the evening the sun started to set as we went back over the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis. The sun set and the Minneapolis skyline looked amazing. Naturally, they had to dance, right in the middle of the bridge. These two definitely love each other and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding in a few short months.
Meet the Hedgers Family! I met this family at ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education), which is a school like environment to take kiddos that are too young to go to preschool. Both of my children loved it I highly suggest finding a group in your city! I met them in class and our daughters clicked right away! I was so excited to take their pictures! Bubbles! Kiddos love bubbles and I LOVE taking pictures with bubbles! I am able to capture such real, genuine smiles! They both are getting so big already and I can’t believe it. It is going to be so fun watching them grow! It was really hot and sticky during these photos, but they turned out amazing! I love the tall grass and bridge in the background, really shows what Minnesota summers are all about! Family, sun, flowers and bubbles!!!
Meet the Ngetich Family! What a fun family! I absolutely love doing group family sessions like this! It is so beautiful to see generations come together to make some amazing memories! Everyone was so nice and kind! Grandma was here visiting from Kenya. When it was time to take her individual shot I said ok stand right there and I said your perfect don’t move! She said, “this is a grandma pose I got it!” It was so cute! Every thing went perfect, besides (I won’t say who to save the embarrassment) one poor gentleman crouched down and rip!! His pants split!! It was definitely one of the highlights (sorry buddy!) of the photo shoot. Grandma is now back in Kenya and I hope she had a great stay! Can’t wait to see you again next time you are in town!
