Engagement Session :: Joanna & Ben

Joanna and Ben drove down from the Twin Cities to have their engagement session last weekend. It was the first time meeting the pair in person because they booked me for their July wedding over the phone after seeing my website.

The weather the morning of the shoot was cold and rainy. Luckily by the time the arrived the rain subsided. Our session started at High Cliff State Park. About 45min into the session and after learning more about the couple we decided to head downtown Appleton to do even more photos with an urban feel.

We took a break at a coffee house and chatted about their interests, their jobs and their wedding day. I love getting to know my couples!!! Joanna and Ben love life and love living in Minneapolis. One fun fact about each: Joanna is fluent in Spanish and Ben was a golf pro - he asked her to marry him in Spanish on the beach in Mexico - Awe!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day. I cannot wait to shoot their July wedding!
