Lake of the Isles Engagement Photos – Lauren & Pravesh

I am so in love with this Lake of the Isles Engagements Photos we did for Lauren and Pravesh!

What a wonderful way to celebrate the “end” of the winter! The snow kept coming even after spring officially started, and Lauren and Pravesh decided to embrace the cold for their snowy engagement photos.

We went out for a chilly but very sweet morning walk around Uptown Minneapolis, close to their beautiful home.  Their neighborhood is my favorite in Minneapolis as it is close to all the Lakes! After we were nice and cold, we went back to their lovely home for some more winter engagement pictures (these ones inside). We shared some nice hot tea, and lots of big laughs.

I am beyond excited for their wedding this November at their neighborhood venue: Five Event Center! Let’s hope for a little less snow!

It wouldn’t be fair without telling you the temperature! It was 17 degrees Farenheit ! We took a break for hot tea inside their apartment, so we pretty much made it.
