Sarah and Brian / Two-Day Aria Minneapolis Indian Wedding

A love so nice, they got married twice! Doctors Brian and Sarah were married this June during a two-day wedding extravaganza. The weekend was an unforgettable celebration encompassing each of their families' traditions, as well as their own personalities and beliefs. During the weekend we noticed many powerful parallels, with family, friendship, benevolence, community, and care underlying everything.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, and in the midst of an especially stressful news week Brian's words from his thank you speech stand out: "what brings us together is love". We have much more in common than not, and putting in the work to understand, empathize with, and uplift one another is especially vital in the face of hate and intolerance.

We were honored to document this story, and we're grateful for the reminder of the beautiful and unstoppable positive forces acting in our world. A huge thank you to Sarah and Brian for sharing your love with us.

Mark and Chris / South Minneapolis Home Engagement Session

With their house on the market, Chris & Mark decided a few weeks before their wedding that they wanted some photos of their current home together (and their dog, the incredible Corby!) We spent the evening on a summer stroll with these three, catching up, cracking jokes, and learning more about their relationship and wedding plans. We can't wait to share the images from their wedding this month soon - we'll just say it was one hell of a party! 

Sarah and David / North Shore Engagement Session

We must admit: the North Shore is one of our favorite places on earth. We've had so many amazing trips and milestones together up there, and it just has a very special place in our hearts. Therefore we were so excited and honored to take a trip up to document Sarah & David's engagement, since they hold this place so dear as well. These two fatefully met at a New Year's Eve gathering right on Lake Superior a few years back. They love spending time in nature together, and after David proposed this spring on a camping trip we all knew the great North was the best and only spot for their photos. 

We're in love with the images from their adventurous, playful, and powerful session, and we're so excited to watch them make it official in October.

PS. Sarah is a designer for Target, so we knew she'd bring the outfit game, but this dress!? *Swoon*

Bret and Lindsay / North Loop Engagement Session

We spent a lovely summer evening wandering the North Loop with Lindsay & Bret. Our wandering turned into a bit of a brewery crawl, hitting up local favorites like Fulton, Modist, and Inbound, chatting and laughing and finding beautiful light with these two friends. Our evening was topped off by an incredible stormy sky on their apartment rooftop. We love how much these two make each other (and us) laugh, and this little preview of their wedding day next summer was so special. Cheers to a life full of smiles 🍻
