Julia & Landon – Romantic Prairie Engagement

engagement adventure twin cities

Photos with Julia and Landon were a real engagement adventure!

This beautiful couple was visiting and had only this day to make their photos work! So earlier we met in a museum, chatted, had cold coffee (because Minnesota Summer) and had lots of fun talking all about their story and their big wedding plans! I love to hear the excitement in Julia and in Landon too! Both are so incredibly excited about starting their life together !

We snapped photos in the museum which I will share as well.

Our main plan was to find a lovely area in nature to take sunset photos, this was the biggest challenge. The radar was full of storms, and the weather kept changing, but we decided to go for it anyway!  After some time of chasing clouds, we found a moment in between the rain and thunder, when the sun finally peeked out and we had a lovely day getting lost in the prairie.  I loved the light we got when the sun started to go down and the weather began to clear, leaving us with just golden wisps of clouds.

Julia and Landon: Thank you so much for spending such an awesome day with me, and being such troopers! I can’t wait for your wedding day!
