snowy minneapolis engagement | lauren & evan

The roads were icy. Freezing rain filled the forecast for our Sunday winter engagement session. The thing is, we had been waiting and waiting for this day to arrive. So, we went for it! Lauren has been a loyal friend, and huge source of encouragement to us for many years- before we were even married, in fact. Lauren stood by us on our wedding day, so knowing that we will be photographing her and Evan again in July when they say their vows is the most meaningful honor. For us, personally, there is no bigger privilege.

We obviously already felt connected to Lauren and Evan before we even arrived at their engagement session, but there was something so magical about this SNOW and their LOVE. It was truly that dreamy kind of snowfall, where you just want to snuggle up and watch it fall from the sky under blankets… OR just run around in it and shake the snow off of the branches over your fiancĂ©’s head!! Evan and Lauren’s relationship was only even more adorable in the snowstorm.

    LOVELY!! I cannot think of a more adorable, wonderful couple. Love them dearly.
    How appropriate to have Evan in an upholstered chair in the snow, with coffee. Very fitting.

    Beautiful photos of two beautiful people. Although I haven’t yet met Evan, I love him already. Lauren, my granddaughter, is more lovely with Evan beside her. I see he brings out a special radiance. I love all the photos.

    Sigh…just dreamy. What I wouldn’t give for such lovely photos from that point in my life. You’ve given them a gift that will last for a long, long time – a little window to recapture and remember this rapturous moment.

    What could have been a contemplative thought, of “Let’s reschedule”, was instead turned into a romantic, fun and creative photo session. I have so many favorites. I don’t envy Lauren and Evan in having to choose. Heidi

    So Fun! My favs are the one with Evan in the chair with his coffee and the one of both of you facing each other in the snow laughing! I think they capture both of your spirits. So full of life!

    I love the snow pics – couldn’t have planned a better session! My favorites: the “&” sign, the heads together, and Evan in the chair-so him! You did a beautiful job and I look forward to the wedding photos!!!

    Omg, these are gorgeous! I can’t wait to see more! I especially love the large black and white one at the top of the page. The one with Evan’s eyes closed and you looking straight at the camera.

    For goodness sake, Lauren – get out of all that snow and get to a tropical climate pronto before you two freeze:) Pics are so well done – can tell you guys are really in love – and that’s a good thing! Are you impressed how quickly we RSVP’d to your invite? We’re super excited for you and Evan!

    Hey Ev. So sorry we cannot make it to your wedding, but you know our door is always open! Bring Lauren by for coffee (decaf if necessary is available) anytime. God has blessed you so! We are glad for you.
