On average, a bridal consultation takes 45 minutes. Sometimes we get through it in 30 minutes, often we take an hour, but never have we sat down with a couple and talked for almost two hours like we did with Rachel and Dan when we all got together. We would have sat and chatted even longer, I’m sure, if it wasn’t for the fact that I needed to get back to feed our little baby girl! We are so excited to be Dan and Rachel’s wedding photographers this week, but we wanted to get a chance to share some of their fun engagement photos that we got to take while exploring the backside of Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan, MN last week.
One of the things we challenge our couples to do when it comes to their engagement portraits is to stay true to themselves as a couple; so, for Gabby & Donny that meant taking their engagement photos at Gabby's family home and spending some time hanging in their favorite spot: the at-home theater. Delicious snacks, buttery popcorn, comfortable chairs, and "The Office" on the big screen -- need I say more? Their family said it's where you find these two together most, and we loved the unique setup!
You wouldn’t believe the amount of times that people tell us they have no idea how or don’t like to take photos. Seriously, as wedding and portrait photographers, we hear it ALL THE TIME. Ethan and Kirstin may be one of those couples. They may have mentioned that they only have a handful of photos of their entire relationship because they really don’t like taking them and don’t know what to do. And yet, once again, we have two completely natural and awesome people in front of the cameras that you’ll see below!

Lindsey & Travis // Dreamy Winter Engagement Portraits at Interstate Park in Taylors Falls // Cottage Grove Photographers
Would you believe it if we shared that the first thing these two said during their dreamy winter engagement photos once we had slipped and slid our way through the ice and climbed the rocks at Taylors Falls Interstate Park to this spot was, “We have no idea how to pose for photos.” Yup. I promise, it’s what they said! We quickly assured them that that’snormal and that’s why we’re here! In fact, it’s so normal that we’ve worked hard to create simple posing that by the end of the session and even after the session, they can pose themselves and even probably describe them to someone else.
