I met Debbi at my crossfit gym and adore the crap out of her. Believe it or not, she is in her 70s and looking at least 20 years less. Good health, and loved-well is looking great on her!
We scheduled her with hair and makeup at my studio and then shot at a location near their home. Vince got us in the truck and tore through the woods to find a beautiful gem of a location. We had many laughs and they danced like no one was watching - literally!
I did ask them what the did when they first started dating and Debbi giggled. Her reply was, "We didn't do much. We just got high and stared at each other." The best reply I may have ever heard.
The way Vince still looks at Debbi is goals. He nibbled her neck and was playful with his touches like a 20 year boy.
I am obsessed with their sweet glances, annoyed giggles, and authentic love for each other.
Help me wish them a very happy 50TH wedding anniversary!
YOU GUYS! I had an incredible time with Jen and Wade!
There were so many stories and giggles between them. Maybe it was the tasty brews at Goad Ridge Brewing Co. in New London, MN or they just have the perfect relationship!
While we were shooting, there was a couple eyeballing us (in a good way) and I thought they were annoyed with us BUT it turns out they were as fond as them as I am because they picked up the tab! What a treat!
We then adventured around the town finding a unique crabby boy on a bike mural. We couldn't decide if it was cool or not! While we were shooting, Jen got a little wild with her hands and hit her darling square in the (you know where) - you've got to see the photo (you bet I am sharing it! ha, ha!) Then they saw the cutest little pup hang out the window and Jen's face screamed, "WE NEED A PUPPY!"
We finished up the shoot at the most serene little dock area and they got pretty competitive in the water which was the perfect ending to the evening with these sweethearts.
I am obsessed with their personalities, her hair, and can not wait for the wedding. They are a match 100%!!
I've known Andy (the dad) for a long time. He's a wedding DJ and has grown into quite the hubby and daddy over the years. Erin (mama) is absolutely lovely and I can't get over how she gorgeous she looks after having sweet little Eliza!!! Sweet big bro was incredibly patient and loving towards his baby sister and snuggled her without hesitation. I'll cross my fingers he'll stay like this during her toddler stage : )
What an incredible surprise it was to receive a call from mama to photograph these twins! I had the pleasure of working with their parents on their wedding day years ago was so bummed they had moved out of the state for the past few years. Just before these darlings were born, mama and daddy with the big fur siblings moved back to MN and I could not be happier!!!
Isla + Isaac were so snuggly and peaceful during their entire session. Right when daddy had to make a work call, they woke up and needed to be fed. Isn't that how the stars always seem to align?!?!
It's amazing what a great bottle of wine, beautiful setting, and gorgeous couple can do! I met Alex and Sam at Schram Winery for their engagement session they knocked my socks off. Take a look for yourself.
