Making the best of the worst.
Jack and Joy are one of the many couples that were affected by Covid, and they contacted us to capture some engagement/wedding portraits around the cities. We ended up booking two sessions and shooting on back-to-back days, which made for such a fun weekend!
These two were so great work with – they were up for anything, they are so stylish and photogenic, and they were so silly and genuinely enjoyed taking photos. Basically any photographer’s dream!
Jack and Joy met many years ago walking outside of Walter Library at the University of Minnesota, so that was our first stop! We used the striking architecture of Coffman Memorial Union, Walter Library, and Scholar’s Walk as a backdrop, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. It was amazing to capture Joy in her future wedding dress in the place that she met the love of her life – swoon!! Next was a quick jaunt to the Stone Arch Bridge to get some quintessential Minneapolis photos during golden hour, which was equally as magical!
Day two was a completely different vibe, with gorgeous fall colors and cozy ‘fits at Fish Lake Regional Park. This park is near to the couple’s home, and they enjoy taking walks there in their free time. We love how thoughtful they were about selecting their locations! We had so much fun trying out different poses, throwing leaves, and laughing together, and we think the incredible energy shines through in Jack and Joy’s photos!
