Justin and Jonie were in town for a few days, and we visited Amity Creek in Lester Park for a lovely engagement session. It’s clear to see how much these two love each other even though it took Justin SEVEN YEARS to pop the question. I am so excited for you two and am glad she didn’t get away!
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.
When asked to rate their wedding John said “Well – I am a solid 6 (+/-1) and my fiancé, Anna, is a stone cold 10. . . So, I would say our wedding is going to be a strong 15, at least.” It was that moment I knew these two were going to be a fantastic couple. Our engagement photos at Lester Park and Brighton Beach just happened to land on the most beautiful day of the spring up until that point, and just 48 hours earlier there were several inches of snow and ice on the ground.
John and Anna met at camp and went their separate ways for several years before making it official. Now the couple is planning a destination wedding up the North Shore at the Lutsen Chalet overlooking Lake Superior. If their wedding is anything like their engagement photos, it’s going to be full of laughter, fun, and dry, sarcastic humor. Perfect.
