Kristen + Mark | Fargo Engagement Photography

Some of you may remember Mark and Kristen’s mini engagement session I did in March. Well it’s time to do their full engagement session so here goes!

We started their engagement session downtown Fargo, getting some fantastic urban style shots. I love the pop of red in Kristen’s shoes and belt, totally catches the eye!

Then we headed out to the Rustic Oaks farm where their wedding will be held later this summer! I’ve wanted to do a wedding there for a while so I’m super excited about this! Kristen and Mark wanted me to see the location so they  got permission from the managers to do engagement photos there. How fantastic is that!

Rustic Oaks is right along the Red River, which is normally really ugly brown and sludgy looking, but the sunset was creating this great reflection of colors, almost looked like fall with those gorgeous yellows!

I think the next photo is my favorite. I just love shooting through leaves and the light sparkling behind them in the trees. Yup, totally gorgeous!!

Laughter makes it even more swoon worthy!

And finally, Goldie made an appearance! Named after the Minnesota State Gophers mascot, isn’t she just the cutest! Only 9 weeks old but with a little help from Kristen’s mom and some tasty treats she cooperated beautifully!
Check back for more engagement and wedding shoots soon … it’s my crazy season so I’m just trying to keep up with editing at this point! ; )
