Abby & Aaron – Nicollet Island engagement session

Friends, these two were amazing at their Minneapolis Nicollet Island engagement session! What a fun, perfect-for-each-other couple. I am so lucky to work with the most loving, sweet and fun couples. It doesn’t even feel like work.  Thank you so much for choosing me to document your lives in this wonderful moment!

With Abby and Aaron I feel like we are long time friends! We had some great ideas and laughs that made the engagement session so much more fun. Sun, breeze, kisses, and some leaves, that all it takes to make Minneapolis picture perfect.

Look at Abby’s bluer than blue eyes and Aaron’s little white patch – So darling! (Yes, I said darling).
