Lakefront Park Engagement / Mary + Will

 

Any Minnesotan knows that doing outdoor engagement photos this winter is RISKY! Old Man Winter has been throwing curveballs at us left and right- but somehow we managed to pick the PERFECT day! 32 degrees, zero wind, fresh snowfall. We tromped (literally) around Lakefront Park and got a lot of variety with location!

Mary and Will are so sweet - like most of the couples I’m lucky enough to work with, they have such a sweet and genuine connection. It’s evident how comfortable they feel around each other - there were SO many giggles as they both joked about being awkward in front of the camera - when in reality, as you’ll see below, they are so photogenic!! Mary and Will are juggling the long-distance dynamic as Will works up in St. Cloud and they only get to see each other on weekends! It’s so true though - absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder and it was clear how much they appreciate their time together. It’s such a beautiful quality that is harder to maintain once you’re married and sharing alllll the things ;) so it was refreshing to be around and made me go home and hug my husband a little tighter! Mary and Will, I’m so excited for your August wedding! I know it’s going to be heartfelt and genuine, just like the two of you!!
