Dalton + Rachel >> Engaged!

Dalton + Rachel >> Engaged!

As any wedding photographer will tell you, it is entirely possible to have a crush on a couple. It usually occurs during the engagement session, when everyone is relaxed and happy, yet just the right amount of nervous. It shows up in the way they laugh with one another, they way they laugh with you, and through the flow of easy conversation. The crush status then becomes solidified when your sweet couple is willing to run onto a roadway with big smiles + sparklers in pursuit of some ballin' photos.

Brian + Rachel >> Engaged!

Brian + Rachel >> Engaged!

Meet Brian. Meet Rachel. Meet Brichel.
These cuties made the trek from Fargo to traipse around outside an abandoned brewery + giggle with each other in a tangle of photogenic weeds. And OH did they do it well.

I can often tell what the tone of the shoot will be before I have even touched my camera.
&It's pretty obvious that when it starts with some volleyball + a giant game of pong, your subjects are going to be the type of couple that are down for anything with a string of endless smiles to match. Turns out I was right. And I ain't mad about it.

The next time these babes grace the blog they'll be in formal attire, exchanging vows in a pretty barn in the countryside.
Guess who can't wait!
Spoiler: ME.
Woohoooo, Brichel!

Jeanna & Zach >> Engaged!

YOU MADE IT! You're here! You've clicked in to one of my favorite engagement sessions... wait for it... of all time. Whoop, whoop! &I'm ready to throw the virtual confetti.

Meet Jeanna. She's a sports broadcast journalist on Channel 6.Meet Zach. He's a pro hockey player for the Boston Bruins.

There's already a romantic comedy somewhere here in the making, amiright?

Aside from their professions, they're the kind of couple that laughs their way through the alleyways of Saint Paul, smooching their way along the Mississippi River during their engagement session. Relaxed. Real. And reeeeal cute, constantly making the other grin + giggle. They're also a certain brand of stellar that drops a bottle of Prosecco off at your house the day after their session as a thank you. (As if they weren't my favorites already.) Theirs is a cuteness that just clearly doesn't quit, and I'm thrilled to be featuring these lovebirds on the blog. CHEERS to J + Z!
