Meet Jake and his fiancé side-kick Lisa. They met at a gathering of friends in Minneapolis/St. Paul and really hit it off! He is a member of the military and I can’t thank him enough for his service! They are tying the knot and I am so pumped to be their photographer! When we were talking about location, they said they love the outdoors, so we made sure to have their engagement photography session in Afton, Minnesota at a park.
Jake picked out a gorgeous rose gold ring with a stunning diamond. It was awesome seeing them laugh together. Getting pictures taken can sometimes take you out of your element, but when you have your favorite human with you, it makes it so much more fun!
The day we did their engagement photos was the first super nice weekend spring weekend in Minnesota. I don’t think we stopped talking about the gorgeous weather. We were taking it all in. Minnesota weather is so unpredictable, but we got the icing on the cake with this sunset.
Now this was by far my favorite part of the shoot. Lisa’s dress twirled so perfectly! And her shoes? How fabulous are those. Lisa informed me she is a shoe girl. I can’t wait to see what she wears on her wedding day!
I always ask my couples if they mind kissing because I never want my clients to feel pressured to show a little PDA for the camera. I have to admit, I love being the kissing cheerleader. I mean who doesn’t want to encourage in love people to have some passionate moments? Not that you have to kiss to have passion by any means, but it is just so romantic!
Congratulations to Jake and Lisa!
