Alyssa and Taylor {Engagement Session}

I can’t think of a better way to end the weekend than at a beautiful state park with a fun couple and an eager to help mother-of-the-bride.  Alyssa and Taylor and Alyssa’s mom, Kris, met me at Minneopa State Park on Sunday evening just in time for some gorgeous evening light.  Never having been to Minneopa before I was blown away by the beauty of the falls, and slightly disappointed that the stair pathway only went down to the river, without wrapping back around to the falls.  Thankfully when asked how adventurous they were feeling everyone voted for taking the “not an official path” path that had been worn by other hikers along the creek. Now that might seem like no-big-deal to you, but when doing it in flip-flops they definitely get adventure points!  I’m looking forward to seeing these two again in August for their wedding.

Matt and Mindy.

I got to spend a wonderful afternoon photographing two amazing friends of mine.  We traveled all over the Twin Cities and only got to about half of the locations we wanted to.  We’re planning on going out again in a couple weeks when the leaves start to change.  I’m blessed to have friends that are not only supportive of my love of photography but don’t mind spending an afternoon being subjects as well! Matt and Mindy will be married in a year from today on September 18th, 2010.  Congratulations you two and thanks for a great shoot.

Tara and Nick e.session l 7.2.09

Tara and Nick were able to make a quick trip into the cities to visit friends and we were able to connect for some photos.  The photos came out great and they were a lot of fun to work with. Not to mention the great job that Nick did considering he’s still wearing a neck brace from the accident a couple months back.
