This engagement session was enchanting. Leaving the Twin Cities to go into the wilderness between Minnesota and Wisconsin was refreshing, and Autumn was coming in full vibrant force. I knew Ariel from when she attended Gustavus before transferring, and I have been in love with her warm spunk since. Darrin is a lovable man who reminds me a lot of my brother: quietly sassy, a goofy smile, and is mischievous. I am glad that these two were up for anything, including when I mentioned that I brought smoke bombs and they were all for experimenting with them. Our session started in the lush woods at their campsite before heading to an incredible overlook of Taylor’s Falls. I look forward to photographing their wedding in Puerto Rico this May!
