Our goals for this sesh were relaxed, natural, and just sooooo over the top cute. We did it!
Katie and Dylan met while in college in Winona, so that's where we headed for their engagement sesh. (Did you know that Kia goes to college in Winona?!)
We started out by some brick buildings in downtown Winona that Dylan used to live near. No, Katie didn't plan to match her shirt to the brick wall, but it looks pretty damn cool, eh?
For engagement photos, we love it if we can direct couples into a pose and they just snuggle and smooch and hug and chat their way into and out of it. It allows for a lot of variety and a lot less stiffness. Movement allows for some fun and playfulness and moments we couldn't possibly pose you into.
We wandered around from block to block looking for spots to stop. For real, sometimes we can make something out of nothing. After that, we headed for a tourist spot near the lake.
We drove up to the bluffs and parked the car to walk out to the scenic area. Along the path there was a wildflower field. Worth a stop.
The. Bluffs. Did. Not. Disappoint.
We celebrated their engagement with a little champagne back in the wildflower field.
I absolutely love spending part of an engagement session in water. Especially right as the sunsets and golden hour is at it's peak. I meannnnn, how romantic are these?!
Congratulations, Katie and Dylan!!! <3
