When I asked Rachel & Josh to describe their ideal engagement session, the theme they kept coming back to was “something, anything, on or near a lake. We just love being near the water.” They love being outdoors as much as I love Pinot Noir, and I was on a mission to create a perfect evening for their session. Minnesota is, after all, the land of 10,000 lakes, but I was having trouble finding the exact right location. So I called for backup.
I met Rachel & Josh through Ethan, a friend and former cube-farm mate, and when I found out he recently acquired an old, teal boat, I knew it was serendipity. Fate was calling, and I couldn’t not answer. Ethan was kind enough to captain for us (a huge shout out thank you!) and take us to the perfect location for their shoot. He also provided enough entertainment to keep Rachel & Josh (and myself!) smiling and laughing. I was thrilled to spend Sunday evening with them on Orono Lake, and am so excited to document their wedding in August.
