Mill Ruins Park + Stone Arch Bridge – Emily & Reed’s Engagement

Living in St. Paul I often find myself — well, staying in St. Paul. During this engagement shoot with Emily and Reed I discovered a few new Minneapolis gems, first of which was this awesome mural. Emily had driven by it and thought it would be a great place to start our afternoon. I know they didn’t plan it on purpose, but Emily and Reed’s outfits totally coordinated with the mural and they looked terrific together!

Another place in Minneapolis I had never been was Mill Ruins Park — I know, I know, I need to get out more! :) Wandering around the ruins was great. The colors, textures, and light were so pretty. Thanks for getting me out of St. Paul and into the great city of Minneapolis, Emily and Reed!

Theodore Wirth Park, Minneapolis – Kate & Ben’s Engagement

I really enjoyed this Sunday morning engagement shoot with Kate and Ben! It is always fun to see how other people live, and Kate and Ben’s apartment was charming – I love the bold colors, especially the red dining room walls. Their adorable dog, Guillaume was excited to have a visitor, and as soon as I gave him my full attention he looked straight at my camera and was quite the model. After awhile we headed outside to nearby Theodore Wirth Park, which happened to be the place Ben proposed! It is a beautiful park and the leaves were just starting to change, making it an absolutely gorgeous fall morning. Kate and Ben were so great and I really enjoyed getting to know them more, which makes me even more excited for their wedding next year!
