Under the Apples.

I love photographing couples. Don't get me wrong though, children and families are a very close second and actually may tie for first. But something about the way two people in love look at one another is just so special. I am so honored to be able to capture and document that love for people. This couple is close to my heart. The guy in the photos is my brother in law and the girl is my to-be-sister-in-law. They are planning a wedding next Summer, which I am so excited for.

We took care of their engagement photos last Fall, but with a 2 year engagement, why not take advantage of another beautiful Fall in Minnesota? So we headed to a nearby apple orchard this time for a few additional captures to document them, together, in 2010.

Sarah + Tommy, Among the Fall Leaves

Ahh, Fall. It's been SO gorgeous here in Minnesota. And Sarah and Tommy knew they wanted to capture the beautiful Fall colors in photos, right around their one year anniversary. And they turned out great! Oh, and before the session, Sarah warned me that they'd need a lot of direction in front of the camera. Well, let me tell you. These two are complete naturals. Made my job just too easy!

I absolutely love fall.  The leaves, the feeling, the smell, the chill... it makes me so excited.  Especially on a day when the clouds move in and give me such beautiful light.  Luckily, Saturday was just like that.  And the colors of the trees were perfect.  Perfect for an engagement session with my brother in law and soon to be sister in law.  Check out these colors!

Hoping for a ton or more beautiful Fall days like this!  Unfortunately it is looking a lot cooler with even some snow soon...
