Category Archives: Winter Engagement
Minnesota has seen a much different winter than previous years; unseasonably warm and barely any snow for the entire season so far. That sounds great – unless you are a photographer who wants to do an outdoor ice skating engagement shoot! Well lucky for Kelly and Jared, we got the ONE freezing cold, very winter-like weekend of the season with a dusting of snow included!
Kelly picked Centennial Lakes in Edina to do their shoot at. We spent some time walking around the rink first. There are lots of little nooks and crannies at this place…swinging benches and stone walls, bridges, little pathways. After about 30 minutes of standing in the ice cold wind, we had to make it back to the warming house for some much needed heat.
Both Kelly and Jared were hockey players growing up. She played through high school and he did so through college, and they are both huge Gopher hockey fans, so it only made sense for us to get out on the ice for a bit!
Kelly and Jared will be getting married on a golf course overlooking a lake in northern Minnesota this summer and I will be there to capture every moment. They are getting married at the very place they met while working summer jobs years ago and I can’t think of a more perfect place to do so! I am so excited to photograph another wedding up north! (See Christie and Bob’s wedding, which I photographed up in Lutsen, MN last summer.) Kelly and Jared – can’t wait to see you in a few months! Time is going to fly by so enjoy every moment leading up to it:)
