darrick and laura

There is something about Lake Superior that is other worldly.  It has such a peaceful energy that consumes you, and there could be a million other people around you, but it feels like the view is for only you.  It is a place to gather your thoughts, enjoy nature, be happily alone, and to just enjoy life.

I met with Darrick and Laura, literally two days prior to their engagement session.  They were in town, planning their wedding, from out of state.  I had such an amazing time at their initial meeting as we shared stories and similarities {80’s rock anyone?}, and I was thrilled when they decided to work with me on their wedding.  Since they were only in town that week, we got them in for their session.  We decided to do their session at Laura’s parent’s home, which also happens to be the site of their wedding ceremony in July.

Laura’s parents have the most incredible piece of property right on the shore of Lake Superior, and when I arrived, it was beautifully overcast which created the perfect muted palette for their session which was perfect with Laura’s dress which seemed to be cut specifically for Laura.  It is one of those dresses that I can’t picture it on anyone else, because it looked so great on her.  We spent most of the session right on the shore, because come on…. the view is spectacular and had special meaning, especially for Laura.

Towards the end of the session , the sun peeked out from behind the clouds and we finished their session with some of the landscaping on the property.  There were so many other spots that we could have used, but I wanted to save some of it for the wedding :).

So here it goes, one of my favorite engagement sessions… enjoy!
