Lebanon Hills Engagement Photography | Laura & Wesley | St Paul Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

These two meet in high school and reconnect a while later through a mutual friend gathering! Although many people thinks the fireworks were for the Fourth of July celebrations little did they know it was actually Laura and Wesley getting better acquainted that night! Fast-foward to fall of 2015. Welsey brought Laura on a camping trip to one of their parks; it was the same camping site in Lake City they had their very first camping trip!
Wesley decidied that they needed to enjoy a walk, so off they went.  Enjoying their walk they ended up in the same spot that welsey told Laura he loved her; in this same spot Wesley asked Laura to be his wife !

To date one of laura and Wesleys favorite adventures was welcoming their fur baby Thor, a mastiff, into their family! As we started to shoot the engagement session, Thor was pretty excited to be out and about, but we were able to get a couple of nice one of him in!

We enjoy shoot their engagement session at Lebanon Hills Park in Eagan. Although the weather had been warming up we still had a chance go get a couple of photos on the lake!

Oijiway Park Engagement Photography | Rose & Zack

Zack and Rose shared a mutual friend, who Rose constantly has to fight over for Zacks love. Rose has won the war even though the battles rage on. Through their friends, Rose was invited to Zack's birthday party. It took a lot of convincing,  but eventually Rose begrudgingly agreed to go. 

While out celebrating through bowling,  everyone knew Rose just was not in the mood to be there. Knowing that Zack still put himself out there and tried to charm Rose.  As both of Rose and Zack's roommates started dating, Zack found more and more excuses to be over at Rose's apartment! Through persistence and adoration, Rose finally gave into Zack's advances. And that is where their adventure together began. 

This session was a little different from my usual engagement sessions. Rose and Zack wanted to have their little family to be featured in their engagement shoot! So in these photos you will be enjoying the faces of Rose, Zack, Scout,  Bugs the Pug, and Hinata the Cat. 

Jennifer & Tom | Home Engagement Photography

Sometimes the comfort of your home is the place you just be yourself  I always encourage my couples to choose places that are comfortable; it makes it a little easier to have someone photographing you! It gives you the best memories with the person you love in a location you love! Jenny and Tom wanted to shoot within the comfort of their own home.

With a mutual love of family, board games, cats, and fine dinning Jenny was smitten with Tom from the beginning. 
As Jennifer and Tom's relationship grew deeper their love has grown stronger.

These two lover birds enjoy spending time over board games together and with friends; both being notoriously competitive, things tend to be a little crazy at times. Tom is satisfied with losing as long as in the process he beats Jenny. Despite his best efforts, Jenny will win on occasion.
