Summer Engagement Session | Edina Greenhouse and Arneson Acres Park | Edina, MN

It’s one thing to say you plan to have a blast during your engagement session, and then it’s a whole other thing to actually accomplish it! And this evening engagement session was both romantic and fun with a side of delicious silliness. I couldn’t have asked for a more engaging couple – see what I did there? Hehe. . .but seriously, they were so much fun!

Monica & Brandon are the type of couple that instantly bring a smile to your face. They are two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet – the kind of people you instantly want to have as friends. And oh how they love to laugh with each other! I honestly knew from the minute I met them, that we would have a great time together no matter what we were doing. 

Their love story started when they were freshman in college at Bethel University. 

And after two years together, they decided that a forever together is the only thing that made sense. 

Brandon ensured that Monica would say yes to his proposal by writing a detailed, romantic poem about their life together, and then chose to have family & friends share, one by one, a picture & a part of that poem with Monica. She laughed, she cried, and at the end of it all, she of course, said YES!

It is clear from their engagement video, that these two not only share genuine love for one another, but that their support system is filled with people who care for them deeply too.

I am so grateful to be a small part of their love story – and just look at how much fun we had during their session! It is evident in their whole gallery, that they are filled to the brim with love, light, and laughter.

I hope you both keep adventuring together forever – and never tire of being each others’ loudest cheerleader.

Congratulations on your engagement, Monica & Brandon!

I cannot wait for your wedding next September!
