Martha’s Vineyard Engagement Session

There is nothing quite like having an island, The Island of Martha’s Vineyard,  for someone who is a Minnesota Wedding photographer to shoot an engagement session.  It is breathtaking!

Paul had proposed to Annelise on the beach at Cedar Tree Neck and we set off to make some engagement images for them to treasure for years to come.  They were marvelous adventurers as we went from the pastoral Polly Hill Arboretum to the wildness of the Atlantic Ocean crashing on Lucy Vincent Beach in Chilmark.  Only a wedding photographer from Minnesota could get as excited as I was with the pristine quality of light on Martha’s Vineyard.  We could have stayed on that beach for hours except the setting sun was beckoning us to the other side of the island.

We headed toward the fishing village of  Menemsha and found a wonderful spot on top of a hill with the Elizabeth Islands and the coast of Cape Cod in the distance and watched as the sun began painting the sky with extraordinary colors.  We were all beside ourselves with joy.  There is nothing compared to the joy of dancing on a hill in Martha’s Vineyard as the sun sets and the sky and water are on fire with warm colors.Martha's Vineyar, Lucy Vincent, Beach, Engagement Martha's Vineyard, Polly Hill Arboretum, Engagement Session Lucy Vincent Beach, Martha's Vineyard, Engagement Session Menemsha sunset, Martha's Vineyard Engagment Session Menemsha sunset, Martha's Vineyard Engagment Session, Chilmark Menemsha sunset, Martha's Vineyard Engagment Session, Chilmark Sunset, Menemsha, Martha's Vineyard Engagement,

Ann Bean Mansion Wedding

Happy New Year!!!

We got the new year started out with  an abundance of love at Malakai and Jessica’s wedding in the elegant and beautiful Ann Bean Mansion in Stillwater, MN.  It was an intimate wedding and the house was filled with the love and laughter of their closet friends and family.  After the wedding,  dinner was at The Dock Cafe overlooking the frozen St. Croix River and then we all headed back to the Mansion for dessert and coffee.

They chose not to see each other before the wedding, but with a door between them spent a sweet moment together:
