engagement session Bellagio Fountains- Las Vegas

I recently moved from Las Vegas to Holloman New Mexico as many of you know, but before i packed up my tiny mustang to leave, i had another great opportunity to shoot with Danette Chappell of The Amberlight Collective. She had this absolutely stunning couple coming to Vegas from Sweden, and let me tag along for some shots too! i encourage all photographers to find other people to shoot with. It is such a good experience, and Danette from day one working at the chapel together, helped me so much! So thank you for letting me be there this lovely day! 
Here are just a few favorites! 

i couldn't stop snapping away, and Lina was so good at posing! She actually is a wedding and portrait photographer too
Another reason to get some close photographer friends... behind the scene shots... :)
we started at the Bellagio Fountains, and walked to the Cosmopolitan Hotel and across the street to the Paris too. Always some fun areas that show a different part of Vegas.. green trees! 

You should definitely head over to The Amberlight Collective blog and check out her gorgeous photos! I'm so blessed to know Danette and have someone who could answer all my crazy questions and teach me so much! Happy Thursday! 

Minnesota farm Engagement- Kelsey and Ty

i can't say enough wonderful things about this couple. I absolutely love my time before the big day to spend time photographing the couple together. These two are so sweet to one another, have so much fun, and really are perfect together! 
here's a few from our evening together all around zumbrota, Minnesota area! 

Minnesota_photographyi LOVE their boots. they look so cute! 
we were walking around Kelsey's parent's farm, and came across these old frames, and we used them for lots of silly (and adorable) faces! 
Okay i have to explain this one with the cows. i've never seen this before when photographing on a farm. they all came up to a gate and just stared, so we decided we had to get one since they obviously wanted to be photographed too! 
Kelsey looking ridiculously gorgeous. 
those are just a few of my favorites, there were so many sweet moments i just had to share! I can't wait to see their beautiful wedding day, and to be a part of it! congratulations Ty and Kelsey! 

a minnesota country engagement!- keisha and brent

the only way to start this, is to say that i'm so blessed to photograph couples like Brent and Keisha! She is absolutely stunning, outgoing, crazy, fun and with one of the most soft-spirited and loving people i know. and i miss her doing my hair so we can catch up! we grew up in school together and has always been the amazing person i explained before. in fact, i once sent her a note i middle school saying so :) 
so hearing about her, you have to know she deserves the best! I had the chance to meet Brent about a year ago at another friends' wedding and he was outgoing and crazy about her too! yup, he passed! 
i had so much fun photographing these too and all of keisha's giggles.. so here's just a few! 

it was absolutely perfect! she had gorgeous fun outfits that shows off her personality and all her cuteness! and it only started getting chilly and windy during the end. it was a wonderful (early) morning! 
i'm so glad i got to spend some time with the both of you, and i can't wait to see you again! your big day is going to be wonderful! love you keisha girl! 

Stone Arch Bridge engagement!- Nathan and Lisa

It was so much fun to photograph Lisa and Nathan's engagement! of course puppy stella too! we became good friends in the car. and nathan said i could've taken her home! :) i saw a few friends of theirs say of course Stella was included, so my question... IS she in the wedding!? 
I grew up next door to Lisa, so after some years of not seeing her, it was great to catch up and meet her fiance too. As soon as we started Lisa was all giggles, anything Nathan did. i loved it! so here's a few for a sneak peek! 

i had a fun time photographing you both and all the cute laughs going on! can't wait until your beautiful wedding day! 

Family Farm engagement in the rain!- Ashley and Scott

Watching Scott and Ashley together makes you feel instantly at ease and at home. it was the first time i had the chance to meet scott, ashley and i grew up in the same small town and together they're so happy! 
Right away they were both laughing, teasing each other, and loved all the kisses ;) And when one had to run somewhere, i always enjoy hearing how they talk about each other. they have a loving relationship, and it just makes me more inspired during the shoot! 
They were good sports.. it was actually lightly raining almost the entire time, and so foggy! but i think it made for some fabulous photos! 

Then when Ashley brought up that she wanted some photos on a hay bale, i almost flipped out, i've been wanting to do so, and it was a perfect time for it!
the moments like the one above is what i LOVE! i won't tell you what we were talking about, but those who know me well.. it's a common and likely subject.. and i'm not even the one who brought it up, needless to say, we had such a fun time! 
There are lots more photos, but this is just a sneak peek of our time together. We started at Ashley's parents farm, and then over to lake city to finish up. Almost right when we got back, it started pouring rain. i'd say we had some perfect timing! 
Thank you both for a fun day. i can't wait for your wedding, it's going to be amazing! Ashley, you're going to be stunning as always, and you had perfect ideas for your engagement photos!
