Rice Park Couple Photography | Becca & Scott | Portraits

Rice Park Becca was the first to notice Scott back in high school. She tried to convenience their choir teacher their voices would work well together and if they had to throw in a couple other singers that was fine but for her and Scott should sing together. Scott admits that he was clueless for the longest time before he came to realize Becca's affections. But once they were finally on the same page it was magic. Now they have been dating for over two years excited spending time together over the Christmas holidays before being a part for the next semester in school.

They decided to get some photos done together for fun while on break from school! Our session was in the beautiful Rice Park, downtown St. Paul. We hit it right as the weather was the coldest at -14 degrees (not including that biting wind). These two were AMAZING even though it was literally way past freezing. I hope you enjoy their session as much as I did!

Cherokee Park, St Paul | Noah | Senior Portrait Photography

Earlier Noah's mom Lori and I were brainstorming locations and the one thing she wished for was snow. This fall in Minnesota has been UNNATURALLY warm. (On my birthday I should have been bundled up under ten blankets with my cat pepper, instead my neighbor was mowing his lawn shirtless. In the voice of my father "UNNATURAL!" So needless to say it has been unseasonably warm.) I think God heard our conversation because the night before Noah's session it snowed.

Working around basketball practices and work, we decided to do a sunrise senior portrait photos at Cherokee Park! We drove along the side roads of Cherokee park and Baker's park for Noah's St. Paul senior session. Noah choose parks that he and his siblings often played at growing up.

Although 23° F is not ideal shooting weather, Noah embraced it like a champ!
Noah is schooling his senior year at Inver Hills Community College and has been enjoying spending his spare time playing Basketball for the Knights at Nova Academy. To incorporate his love for basketball I had him shoot some hoops during our session to help him relax and show off his moves. His basketball photos ended up being some of my favorites from the senior guy photography session.

Noah, I know photos are not your thing but I hope you enjoy them regardless. Good luck on the rest of your senior year and this basketball season!

Kaposia Landing Photography | One Year Anniversary | Tara & Ty

Looking back a year from when your wedding day took place you will not believe how time has just flown by. For their one year anniversary Tara wanted to do something special for Ty. Tara having had a recent surgery having a fancy dinner was out of the running.
We were excited to meet up at a small water front park right on the banks of the Mississippi.
The sky was a little cloudy but the sun peaked out of the billowing clouds at least once or twice.
Tara and Ty had become pros at relaxing and enjoying their time on the shoot. Their favorite parts of being married has been not only seeing how well Ty meshes great with the Zschokke familybut also being able to spend every day together!  One Year down - Forever to go!
