Engagement session

Como Park Pavilion Engagement Photography | Isabella & Steven | Minneapolis Engagement Photographer

Isabella and Steven met by chance in a cooking class when they both studied at St Paul College. Isabella was cute and quiet. Steven told me that she would hardly talk in class. So as Isabella started the class with the goal to become a better cook Steven's goal for that semester became one thing and one thing only. Get this beautiful quiet girl to talk to him.

He was definitely successful in his endeavor as they are on the road to matrimony. Steven does not consider himself a patient man when it came to proposing. He had the ring a total of ONE week trying to figure out the best way to purpose to the woman he loved. But instead he took to heart the phrase no better time then the present. As they were driving, the conversation of the engagement popped up. Steven pulled over right there, pulled out the ring that had been sitting in his pocket, and asked Isabella to marry him.  She said YES!  They are scheduled to get married next fall!
Please enjoy some of the photos we captured at their engagement session at COMO Park!

Spring Lake Park Engagement Photography | Michaila & Bailey | Minneapolis Engagement Photographer

Bailey and his family packed up and moved from Minnesota to Connecticut. His life was about to change in more ways than one. At his new church he joined in on the frequent Volleyball games the same place that Michaila happened to be a part of. Besides his good looks Michalia fell for his bubbly personality that she witnessed first hand. It wasn't too long after that that they were dating!!

Then one day this past April Bailey decided to get a ring on that figure! So he took Michaila to one of their favorite restaurants with a beautiful outdoor seating and was going to pop the question with a beautiful view outside as well as the handmade ring box he made. Unfortunately nature had different plans and the rain forced them to spend their date night inside. They were seated at a corner booth so Bailey trying ever so smoothly and truthfully a little awkwardly adjusted the box out of his pocket to finally pop the question. As you have probably guessed since they are doing the engagement photos that she said yes!! While they were visiting back in Minnesota they decided to invite me to shoot with them in one of their favorite parks!

Lebanon Park Engagement Photography | Chelsey & Steve | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

They met in middle school at Falcon ridge. They always made it a point to sign each others year books. Having taken a lot of classes together they knew each other but then they differed apart of a couple of years. Steve noticed Chelsey's smile the most because she was always wearing it. They had seen each other a ways at a foot ball game and Chelsey had waved but Steve didn't go over to say hi and immediately regretted it after the fact. So when fate brought them to the same bar a while later Steve was not going to give up his chance to say hi this time! it was not too long after that that they were dating!! 

Then on a hill in redwing Steve wrapped his arms around Chelsey and they just cuddled there.  as he held her he knew this was the future he wanted. Chelsey then heard a snapping sound of a ring box closing as Steve placed the ring in her hand and as they hugged there he asked her to marry him! 
So that brings us to this shoot! We went to one of their favorite hiking spots at Lebanon Hills Park! It was a hot day and the sun was being my best friend! As we enjoyed each others company we also experienced some wild life: Geese, I GIANT turkey, and a deer. It was quiet the little adventure! The will be getting married this winter not two far from where we shot these! 

Enjoy their engagement session!
