Now THAT is what I am talking about. The photographers dream engagement session of Miles and Nina… how do I love thee, let me count the ways. I want to write a novel on how cool Miles and Nina are as a couple. Miles can match me ‘Friday‘ movies quotes and is about the most genuine, super cool person you will ever meet, and Nina is pure love and delight and totally un-aware of her beauty. I LOVE them and was so happy to be able to photograph them before their big day.
My beloved Jenifer Haupt from I make Beautiful did the hair and make for this session, so worth it to get your hair and make-up done folkds ! We started at my cool studio I affectionately call ‘Tara‘ and headed out to Green Acres as Miles and Nina LOVE to landscape. This session left me feeling so very blessed to be able to do what I do for a living. So much fun and joy below :
A flash back to this summer, this wedding truly warms my heart. Rachel and Chris were two of the NICEST kindest, most loving people I have ever met. They were soul mates who had their perfect day at Arden Hills Country Club. I LOVED this wedding with every fiber of my being. With my great friends Jenifer Haupt from I make Beautiful making the bride beautiful and Shannon from Flourish making her stunning floral designs, this event was pure beauty, sunshine, love and light. And my friends out did themselves with the cake, Rebecca and Hector from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca sweetened up the place big time. I always look forward to working at Arden Hills, the staff, food, and service are top notch. They have it down and that makes for a wonderful and relaxed day. Again, less talk more photos right : )
Oh how I LOVE her bright and bouncy flowers, played Flourish : )
Arden Hills has so many great locations to get these bold dramatic shots, I love it there.
I adore everything about this photo, colors, the expression, it is true love all the way.
Giving some well received advise on a happy marriage : )
Please note their expressions, priceless.
Dig the detail of that cake right ? It is work of art !
