It is officially summertime and there is no better way to enjoy it than by heading out to explore the great outdoors of Minnesota! One of our favorite places to capture the beauty of summer in Minnesota is in Taylors Falls, and we knew it would be the perfect fit for Melissa and Nick’s engagement session! These two love spending time outdoors running, playing ultimate frisbee, and hiking, especially in Duluth! Which just happens to be a pretty romantic place to fall in love, if you ask us! We were hoping for perfect weather to capture these two and we ended up with one of the most beautiful evenings of the summer so far!
Melissa and Nick have so much to celebrate this year! Both graduated from UMD this spring and celebrated their 6 year anniversary on May 15th. With their wedding planned for May 15, 2021, we originally scheduled their engagement session for May 15th as well! At the time, none of us expected to need to reschedule due to a nation-wide pandemic! Melissa is the sweetest thing and was so gracious as we rescheduled their session to June instead!
These two are perfect together and we had such a great evening exploring. We were thrilled to find that the lilacs were still in bloom! With our spring engagement sessions rescheduling, we thought we had missed out on the spring blossoms altogether. Thankfully, there were still plenty in bloom and we had a blast capturing all of the gorgeous colors! These two looked amazing and Melissa’s dress couldn’t have been more perfect for the setting! We can’t wait to celebrate with them next year for their wedding at the Rolling Ridge Event Center in St. Joseph. It will be gorgeous and we can’t wait to celebrate with them in the spring after all!
