We are SO excited to share these images from Tony & Kate’s engagement session! These two are positively beautiful inside & out. They created the most dreamy engagement session–complete with a crown of babies’ breath and a birch branch tent. All of this left me swooning! When Kate shared these photos with her friends on facebook, she accompanied them with the most inspiring words. Words that I completely admired and asked her if I could share them here!:
“Today, I realized I am living in a dream. I believe that we prophesy our own futures with our thoughts and words. I am a dreamer. And I may have my head up in the clouds most days dreaming about better ones ahead- but that is why God has blessed me with this amazing life of mine. He has surrounded me with people I love that support me in everything that I do. And he lets me know that it’s good to dream. It’s good to try something that scares you. And it’s good to do what you love and create your own path. Today I got to see a glimpse of my life through someone else’s eyes with these pictures: warm, dreamy, happy, loving, simple. One of my favorite quotes says it all: ‘I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy… and who it is that makes you happy… and your set. Promise.’ ” -Kate
Danielle & Mike picked the perfect August evening to meet us in Wayzata for their engagement photos! We are all for soaking up warm sunshine and spending lazy summer days sitting on docks, watching life happen on the lake. When Danielle first brought Mike to visit this place near her childhood home, he decided that Minnesota was “not so bad after all.” Which I think means he loves it a lot. And her even more. (: Even though these two are busy building a life in North Carolina right now, we are so excited that they are coming back to MN next July to marry each other and that they’ve chosen us to document the special day!!
This summer we had a fabulous opportunity to take a mini vacation to Chicago and discover the Windy City with our two favorite Australians! I first met Katie 5ish years ago through my personal blog and have long admired her warm heart and amazing sense of style. When she announced plans to take a holiday with her Mr. Morgan this summer in the U.S., we knew we had to make a way to meet in real life! Coincidentally, they had relatives to visit in Illinois and Chicago was the perfect location for a rendezvous. Although it’s the next closest big city to Minneapolis, we’d never done much more than simply pass through on the interstate. I am so glad we finally stopped and soaked it all in–because I am completely smitten with this place and so glad we got to experience it with these sweet friends!
