Stacy and Alex had decided that the perfect location for their engagement photos was near Lake Harriet where they both grew up. We had several ideas and dates to try, but each time, something was working against us! First there was a huge storm which postponed the fun day we had planned on the Lake Harriet Trolley. Then President Obama made a last-minute arrival, which not only closed the Trolley altogether again, but blocked off the entire area around Lake Harriet too.
We were luckily able to meet and work on Lyndale Park Peace Garden engagement photos, which is about as beautiful as it gets for a park in Minneapolis! It’s a well-manicured, spectacular garden, with a bridge, waterfall and numerous plants, trees, pathways, etc. Even while we were taking their engagement photos, we were praying that the clouds floating overhead would not rain on us – our early summer MN weather has been crazy this year, but we were determined to make it work!
Stacy and Alex were so much fun, and did I mention they are SO cute together and we were laughing up a storm – I’m so excited to be their Minneapolis wedding photographer for their wedding in October!
