{James <3’s Kelli} Engagement Photos

Here are some of my favorite shots from my photo shoot for my friends James and Kelli. We went to the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis, this is the same place that he asked her to marry him, so it seemed fitting, also the scenery is just so beautiful.

I had a lot of fun on this shoot, I have known James for years so already having a rapport with him helps, since its usually harder to get the guy to look sincere in photos. I took about 300 photos through out this whole process because I wanted to make sure that I had captured the right expressions. I think this is very important when taking photos of people. I want to make sure that they are truly represented and they look like themselves. I know that this is something I would want, therefore I carry that same ideal through my work.

I had a lot of fun with artist touches in Photo Shop as well. I think that it enhances a photo and makes it a little more unique. Which is also something I try to accomplish because everyone knows I don’t do anything plain or basic.  I like to make sure that the photos are up to art quality and can look just as good as a painting.

I can’t wait for this wedding and I hope they love their photos as much as I do. ❤
