Talk about kindred souls. Lisa and James are truly, and wholeheartedly, made for each other. I know I’m a sap for love stories and my life’s mission is to make people happy but I was absurdly stoked when Lisa said she wanted my team to be her and James’ wedding and engagement photographer. Like…I think […]
As far as I’m concerned, engagement sessions should always – always – feel like a date. So when asked “where would you like to take your photographs?” Melissa and Jared, without skipping a beat, said “The Minnesota Zoo.” And y’all…this is why we say to choose a spot with personal, sentimental meaning. Melissa and Jared […]
Have you been to Madeline Island? Before Katie and Matt’s adventure engagement session I would have said, “No but I really really want to.”
And let me tell ya…this will NOT be the last time I make it to that beautiful island!
“Skipping!” We made Maia’s dreams come true when I asked her and her fiancé, Zac, to skip around Shady Oak Park.
Those reactions make my heart smile. While I love posing my couples in cuddly position, it’s the movement and authentic expressions that come from my fun (and oftentimes goofy) prompts that give our Lauren Baker Photography engagement photos their unique, visceral quality.
When my couples request a specific place to take their engagement photos I immediately say “HECK YEAH!” and then ask about the significance of that location. For Jenny and Fuchie, Parkers Lake Park in Plymouth, MN was the spot where they had their first official date. So naturally, I bawled my eyes out and then agreed to meet them there on an early morning in the beginning of May.
Giggles and love reign supreme with Kristine and Steve. I honestly can’t tell you how many times we all busted into giggles but what I can tell you is that my abs were sore the next day from laughing so hard.
Whoever thinks malls aren’t romantic don’t know what the hell they’re talking about! Case and point, Colleen and Andrew’s love story which began at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. Not only did they meet there, they also had many dates at the mall. It was also where Andrew proposed!
Karen and Matt get the Best Balance award of 2019. Seriously! Ice covered nearly every walking path we took while taking their engagement photographs and they didn’t fall…not even once! I had a few stumbles but thankfully we all walked away unharmed.
Darcy and Tyler were the winners of my Hyland Hills wedding fair giveaway and I couldn’t have been luckier that they won. Both as super sweet yet sassy (if you know me that’s a killer trait as I’m queen of sass-a-fras). They’re romantic and playful. They’re down to earth and have dreams for days.
When your engagement session starts out with mimosas and brunch you know it’s going to be a great session! Sara, Kyle, and I met up on what felt like a fairly chilly Fall morning (as I write this it’s -10 outside…how I laugh) and before heading out to Willow River State Park, decided what better way to fight off the cold than with some drinks. It was delectable!
