It was the quickest flight I have ever been on, 45 minutes from Traverse City into Minneapolis, Minnesota. Within a couple hours of landing, I met up with Megan & Cory at the lakes in uptown, near the Tin Fish, for their engagement pictures. It was a spot they mentioned they liked to hang out. Although we’ve met on Skype, it was fantastic to finally meet Megan & Cory in person. They are a fun, giggly, adorable couple. My cheeks hurt from laughing with hours of first meeting them.
The sun was shining down on the beautiful blue waters as people paddled out on the lake. Even though it was a quick drive from downtown Minneapolis this location was perfect for those that love the outdoors. Running & biking paths, kayaking, and more was all right there. The first part of their engagement session was Friday night, close to sunset. We started out on the walking paths, but as the sun went down we went to the other side of the lake. The views of the city in the background only added to the amazing lift they did in the water.
The following morning we met up bright and early for part two of their engagement session in the mill district of Minneapolis. Although it ended up getting to 99 degrees later that day, the early morning provided us with the perfect 75 degree weather and quiet streets. The Stone Arch Bridge, with views of the city, was a fantastic location to start their engagement session. Megan brought along balloons and flowers, which just added to the fun of their engagement session. The roses were also a wonderful way to showcase Megan’s stunning ring that Cory picked out. Near the bridge, there were beautiful walkways, stairs, and buildings. It was great to have so many different backdrops that close to each other. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to not only photograph their Minneapolis engagement pictures but also excited to capture their upcoming wedding this September in Marquette, MI. Enjoy!
This photo fills my heart with joy.
When asked how they normally embrace Megan ran, jumped, and clung onto Cory. It was perfection.
And they nailed the lift!!
Movement sends my heart pitter-pattering.
They make running look so dang beautiful.
