My first trip to Minneapolis did not disappoint. Alberto and Anne were such gracious hosts, showing me the highlights of the city, giving a short tour, and introducing me to amazing eats!

Having only met via Skype, this adorable duo invited me out for breakfast on the day on the photo session. After stuffing our faces at The Copper Hen, the perfect start to any day, we scoped out the locations for our shoot and made a game plan. After splitting up for the afternoon, it was finally time to get started. I showed up at Alberto and Anne’s apartment, and they came walking out looking like movie stars. Inspired by their recent European trip, the formal outfits and rustic environment were reminiscent of a Parisian alley. Despite loving the location, it was lame in comparison to Anne’s glowing smile and Alberto’s GQ swagger.

Each location, each outfit, got better and better, until the finale which required a little bit of danger as I had to hang on the edge of a bridge to snap a few of my favorite photos! Definitely unique, full of romance, and oozing with cuteness, this engagement session set the bar high for 2017.
