Erik and Hannah met in the genetics lab at NDSU. Every day he would wait for his future bride just to hold the door open for her. On the last day of class, he asked for her number, and they have been happily together since. When they first began dating, Erik shared his passion for nature and growing trees. He told her about a particular old-growth forest in Northern Minnesota called the Lost Forty. The way he said it gave Hannah a suspicion that he would one day propose there. Erik finally brought her to the Lost Forty, and while walking the trail, stopped between a huge white pine and red pine, and before she knew it he was on one knee with a ring in his hand!
Casey and Diana met online and have been together for three years. They’re set to get married one year from the day Casey proposed. For their summer engagement session, we headed to Lester Park where the sun was shining and the creek was roaring. It was a beautiful day to celebrate the love these two have for each other. Congratulations!
Kelsey and Claudia met through mutual friends that they both knew from school and soccer. In January, they will have officially been together for seven years! They proposed to each other on a trip to the beach and the Portland Malt Shoppe. First, Claudia popped the question to Kelsey beside the shores of Lake Superior, and then they headed over to the malt shoppe where Kelsey had a special spoon prepared for Claudia to use. When the malt was gone and spoon licked clean, the phrase “Will you marry me?” appeared engraved on the metal of the spoon. And the rest is history.
Jake and Kimberly met at a country music concert and started seeing each other shortly after. Fast forward a few years to Kim’s birthday weekend in Oceanside, California, and Jake is down on one knee beside the water asking Kim to marry him. Jake knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her when he couldn’t imagine a day without seeing Kim. For engagement photos we spent the day exploring Amity Creek and Stoney Point,enjoying the gorgeous weather, and celebrating the love that these two obviously have for each other. Perfection.
