“OK, you guys, let’s walk over this way.”
“Hold on, there’s another one!” ~Whack~
So went Allison + Joseph’s beautiful Minnesota Landscape Arboretum engagement photos. Allison + Joseph have been planning their wedding date for a mid-winter day at the MN Landscape Arboretum, so naturally we decided upon an engagement session that contrasted with gorgeous scenery of the Landscape Arboretum in the summertime. We forgot, however, that Minnesota in late summer is pretty much a full-on mosquito party. Nothing a little swatting couldn’t handle, of course!
We started their session by heading out to the new Dog Walking area at the Arboretum – it’s an awesome trail through the woods and around some of the gorgeous landscape that gives a great nature hike for humans and canines to enjoy together (as opposed to plain chain-link fenced plots of grass or dirt that comprise most dog parks around the area.) Allison, Joseph and their two fur-babies had such fun together! Once their doggies left to visit grandma’s house, the rest of us continued on to photograph in some of the other gorgeous parts of the park, including the Japanese Garden, waterfall area, and even near an amazing tree out in the Prairie area.
At their Image Viewing and Ordering Session a week or two later, Allison + Joseph chose to order a 10×10 Engagement Album (more about those in an upcoming blog post!), Save the Date cards, and a few gift prints. I can’t wait to show them their final items in a few weeks, they will be so beautiful!
Allison + Joseph, thank you so much for choosing to work with me for your engagement and wedding photography. I’ve had such a great time getting to know you, and I am so excited for your big day in January!
