It was an absolute joy photographing Ericka and Danny for our summery engagement session in downtown Minneapolis! We ventured to the Stone Arch Bride and Father Hennepin Bluff Park for their session and the night couldn't have been more perfect! After two straight days of rain, the drizzling finally stopped just in time for our fun downtown.

We started the evening out by heading to Father Hennepin Bluff Park for a few photos on the bridge. For two people who said they were slightly camera shy, these two didn't act like it! Danny was constantly making Ericka giggle and laugh. Their witty personalities were fun to photograph because they love to joke around and mess with each other.

They brought along their hockey jerseys for some photos on the Minneapolis landmark. These two were pretty ambitious wearing University of North Dakota Sioux hockey uniforms in University of Minnesota Gopher territory, but they have team pride! The Stone Arch Bridge and the Minneapolis skylinewere the cherry on top.

The two of them enjoy basically anything that involves hockey and beer. Some of their favorite things are watching movies together, exploring the outdoors and going out to eat. They made dinner plans to Olive Garden after our engagement session since they were dressed up so nicely! I was a bit jealous…

Ericka has been dreaming of her wedding day since she was a little girl so she loves every piece of the wedding planning process. Picking out her dress was a really special day. Danny played a very important role in the planning process because he got to pick out the venue all on his own.

I can’t wait for their wedding next June at the Eagan Community Center in Eagan, Minnesota!
