Engagement Session: Jess & Jake

What is it about Engagement Sessions that get me so giddy?? Oh yeah, L-O-V-E! That’s what it is! I love, love. I had a BEAUTIFUL time capturing Jess & Jake’s Engagement photos. What a sweet and fun loving couple. Truth be told that my very own lovely friend Em is the one who recommended Ri Photography to them. Thanks, Em! She was also my assistant on the day of the shoot. Just wonderful!

Jess & Jake are getting  married next June 4th. We shot the session exactly 1 year from the date of there wedding. It was so special. You’ll notice some photos involving football. This sweet couple first met during intramural football at their college, North Central University. How fun is that?

Enjoy and love, love with me!

Family Session: Roland’s

Let me just set the stage for you: a rainy day that turned BEAUTIFUL, humidity at 100%, a family of 9, lots of smiles and laughs! We sure had a great time after church on Sunday capturing memories for The Roland Family. Tyler had the brilliant idea to have family photos taken as a gift for Mother’s Day. Way to go, Tyler!! The amazing Mom and Dad (Renee & Bill) adopted 4 WONDERFUL kids: Tori, Deonte, Kyanna & Tiara. What a family! Jason, Jordan & Tyler are the older brothers! Laura (my sister-in-law) is dating Tyler… and she made it in some of the photos too :)

Wa-la…. presenting…. Theeee Roland Family!

Engagement Session: Dana and Bre

Let’s just start off by saying… this was my all time favorite Engagement Session. Bre and Dana are so photogenic and make a great couple! Josh and I couldn’t be more excited for their upcoming wedding on June 25th, 2010. Bre is a longtime family friend of Josh’s Family and it is so special that they are both recently married :) The reason this shoot was possibly my favorite thus far may have had something to do with the fact that Josh was along. We made it a Day-Date and had lunch at Annie’s Parlor before the shoot, got some shots around Dinky Town and headed to the Mill City Museum area and Guthrie. They were perfect locations for this sweet, loving couple. Okay, I will let the photo’s speak for themselves… GORGEOUS! [warning: there are a LOT :) …I had trouble narrowing it down…]

Jarrett & Kylie: Engagement Session

Jarrett, Kylie and I met while interning with Teen Mania Ministries. Jarrett was a fellow Minnesotan and Kylie has know become one :) Welcome to the MN family! This cute couples wedding will be at the beginning of August and Laurel and I are so looking forward to photographing their special day. Laurel is one of my best friends and she is pursuing photography too… we shot this engagement shoot together. I can now understand why Photographers tend to do that very often – it was a BLAST! :) Enjoy these fun moments… There were a LOT to choose from!

Mike & Heidi Engagement Session

Think fun. Think classy. Think creative. Think totally in love! That pretty much describes this amazing couple. Heidi and I go wayyy back… Well to August 2008. I met this lovely woman at The Honor Academy. She was my RD for my internship year with Teen Mania Ministries. The truth she spoke into my life was HUGE. Mike and Heidi met through Teen Mania and there story is a beautiful love story.
I was honored to be asked to photograph these fun memories. Again, I had SO many to choose from.
Josh and I spent the weekend in Des Moines, IA. 5 hours later we had a LOT of great photographs. The time flew by and it was especially fun to see what creative ideas (and outfits) Mike & Heidi had. Here you go… Get ready for some L-O-V-E!
