Matt and Michelle - Downtown Minneapolis Engagement Session

What a FUN session, it's not everyday I get to shoot someone getting punched in the face on purpose! We chose downtown Minneapolis for its mix of architecture, skyline and dirty alleys. Since we were going for a mix of grungy and fancy shots, it was perfect. The only down side was the Twins game, which made parking a little tricky.
I know this will be a very fun wedding, and can't wait for it to get here!

As a side note - I'm heading to New York to shoot a wedding this weekend, so it will be a little quiet on the blog until I return.

OK, I feel the need to explain these a little. When you think of a typical engagement session, you might picture holding hands, kissing, sharing a bowl of spaghetti (see Lady and the Tramp), not fighting. But Michelle likes to box and REALLY wanted a picture punching out Matt, so what the hell. We even made a little series out of it (by the way, people really get edgy when you are taking pictures right outside a naughty toy store... who knew). Anyway, here are two shots from that series, the first one Michelle "accidentally" hits Matt (even though I told her she could be 4 inches away and it would still look real). Now picture getting one of those as a save the date!
