Kong and Kaoshane are my go-to couple when I am feeling creative. They are always willing to meet me anywhere, anytime and always trust in my vision without any questions. Last summer, we had planned a mock engagement session in Stillwater but when we showed up that day, there was a summer music festival so hundreds of people + no parking + road closures everywhere = no go! We decided to leave Stillwater and reschedule to another date. Flash forward to March 2018, we finally made it out!
I chose Hansen Tree Farm in Anoka because I love the greenery here. There are so many opportunities to turn something ordinary into something magical and romantic here. Below are a few of my favorites from our session:
I coordinated their outfits because I wanted something romantic and made the bouquet myself and boy! was that a struggle. I couldn't find the silver dollar eucalyptus anywhere and went from Bachmann's to about a million Trader Joe's. I wanted something minimal but ended up buying stems from each store I visited in fear the next one wouldn't have it LOL, so I ended up with lots and lots of leaves.
The suit is owned by Kong and Kaoshane's shirt is from F21 and skirt is from ASOS.com.
We spent about an hour at Hansen and even though we got spectacular lighting, it was so very cold. Thank you for Kong and Kaoshane for braving the cold and spending their evening with me.
P.S. There was another reason why I wanted to do this mock engagement session......
.....she said YES today! :) Congratulations to the both of them! I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you both. Love you!
