If you're familiar with Lake Calhoun in Uptown you know that only once in a blue moon the beaches are empty of people. I was lucky Emily and Robby's wedding was one of those days. Here's some of my favorite moments.
I shoot a lot of first dances. Being a wedding photographer, it tends to be a part of my job. First dances are actually one of my favorite moments during the day. It can be the first time the couple gets to spend alone time together after officially getting married. Granted, everyone is staring at them so they're technically not alone, but they always seem to block out the rest of the world for those few minutes. Melissa and Joe's first dance fits the bill. If fact, if the song was on repeat, I doubt they would've ever stopped.
Just how it should be.
Location: Rosebrook Farm
Big thanks to my friend, Keegan for shooting with me.
I love when I get the chance to shoot at Camrose Hill Farm because it's one of my favorite wedding venues in Minnesota. It's absolutely beautiful. Bri and Josh's wedding was no different. These two go together like peanut butter and jelly. The way Josh lifts Bri and how she swings in his arms with such grace sure made my job easy.
I get to start my 2014 wedding season with these two. Next weekend we get to celebrate their love at a family cabin in the woods (and snow) of Wisconsin. To me, it doesn't get better. The joy and love they have for each other is evident, and I'm thrilled I get the chance to capture it for them.
Our engagement session took place on the St. Croix river in Stillwater and Taylor's Falls, MN. If I could only shoot one location, I wouldn't stray far from here.
At the end of out session I had two frames left on my roll of film and I thought it would be fun to have them take a photo of each other. The images below are what they created.
