My friend Lori, a wedding planner and one of the owners of veiled events in Woodbury, got me in touch with Mike & Heather. They are getting married this coming October and were in need of a fabulous photographer to photograph their special day (….that’s where I come in :D). So we met at the studio, showed them all my cool products and images, signed a contract and booked a date for their engagement session!
With my engagement sessions I like to take the couple to a fun location outside of the studio. This is our chance to play around, get some fun images and get to know one another. I knew right off the bat that Heather and Mike were not the back alley/grunge type of a couple but more of the relaxed/nature setting type. I knew I wanted to take them somewhere different, somewhere I had never been before and instantly thought of the Minnehaha Falls Park in Minneapolis. I had seen some amazing photos taken there and decided the green grass and trees would make for some excellent backdrops for the couple. We had everything planned out – Mike would come up from Iowa for the weekend (like he does most weekends….now THAT’s LOVE!) and we would go out on Saturday morning for the session. But of course, Mother Nature had to rain on our parade…it was SUPER cold and rainy all day! But never fear – Sunday turned out to be an amazing day with sun shining and temps almost back to normal!
I had such a blast wandering around Minnehaha Falls Park with Mike and Heather, exploring the new location and creating some intimate portraits of the couple. I can’t wait until their wedding day!!! We’re going to have a blast! Thank you Mike and Heather for being such an adorable, fun couple 🙂 If you’d like to see more of Mike and Heather, check out my facebook page.
