There is something so sweet about these two. Their glances. Their cute jokes. The time when Antonio pretended to almost push Chris into the river and they burst out in the most infectious laughter until we were all crying. Yeah, these guys are awesome – definitely my kind of people! I am so excited to be able to photograph their wedding next summer at the Landmark Center in downtown St Paul.
When deciding on their engagement session location, Chris + Antonio decided they wanted Mill Ruins Park engagement photos in downtown Minneapolis. And of course, why not? It’s a perfect mix of vintage stone structures in a grand natural setting – a photographer’s dream! Old stone and ironwork ruins, fall grasses and wildflowers, the amazing riverfront, vintage buildings and the stunning view of the Stone Arch Bridge all encapsulated in one location. It’s pretty spectacular!
We spent lots of time wandering around beautiful Mill Ruins Park and finding gorgeous points to photograph the two of them together. We photographed among the stone and iron ruins and the wildflower fields, as well as down by the river and under the Stone Arch Bridge. We had such an amazing experience cracking jokes, laughing and getting to know each other! Our session seemed to be over in a flash.
Chris + Antonio visited my studio to see their final photos and choose their favorites. They were so sweet – they had such a tough time choosing among all the options! They settled on a number of favorite images to use in their engagement photo album and for wall art. I can’t wait to see everything in final print – I know everything will look absolutely amazing!
Chris + Antonio, thanks again for everything, I had such a great time working with you. I’m so excited for your wedding next year – it will be tough to wait until August!
