Summer Engagement Session | Centennial Lakes Park | Edina, MN | Wedding Photographer

Love doesn’t have to be so complicated. Capturing the natural connection between two lovers is one reason why I love, love. This engagement session proves, once again, that laughter is, in fact, the best medicine.

As a luxury wedding\family photographer, people frequently ask me if I have clients that are “difficult” to photograph or if there is ever a conflict of personalities during my sessions; and honestly, no, because I like to think that we should celebrate our differences versus view those differences as a negative.

I also have a list of things a mile long going on in my head during a session – from lighting, to the settings on my camera, to posing my clients in an authentic way; and lastly, and most importantly, I focus on making my clients’ experience both exceptionally fun, effortless for them, and of course, efficient. 

If you are both laughing, feel comfortable in front of my camera, and your connection as a couple or family is coming through in your photographs, then I know I am making your experience both memorable AND fun!

Ashley & Bill’s engagement session was all of the above – a carefree, fun, connected adventure with ALL the smiles and authentic laughter. 

They both were an absolute blast to be around, and made my “job” super, super easy. 

As their session flowed, they laughed harder and became more and more comfortable in front of my camera. At one point, I asked them how they were both feeling, and Bill said, “Well, we have been laughing 90% of the time, so I’d say we are doing pretty great!” 

YES! That is music to my ears, Bill. I want you to have so much fun with your fiancé that you forget that you are in front of a camera!

And it is clearly evident from their gallery that Ashley & Bill are clearly in love with each other. One of the sweetest things about their love story is they had crushes on one another months before they actually started dating – how cute is that!?

On that note – I am #sorrynotsorry if your faces hurt at the end of your session from smiling and laughing so much, Ashley & Bill!

I honestly think your gallery would make even a skeptic believe in love. 

Congratulations, once again, Ashley & Bill on your engagement!

I simply cannot wait to capture your joy & laughter on your wedding day.
