Megan + Bryan: a northern Minnesota engagement

There’s nothing quite like the Minnesota north woods in the summer. Everything is green and fresh. The smells of clear lake water and bonfires fill the air. It’s certainly a favorite place of mine to take photographs.

I can’t wait for their wedding on Gull Lake this summer. Brilliant.

    Looks like a couple who are perfectly at ease with each other. No doubt they’ll be just as in love at 80 as they are now. That’s perfectly clear in the photos.ReplyCancel
