Darin and Jill | Fargo Engagement photography

Posted in: Engagement

This time of year I’ve been doing mini-engagement sessions for couples who have weddings in June. They need a save the date image, or a photo for the newspaper, but the weather only lets us do about 15 minutes before noses and ears get red, and my camera batteries slow down in the cold.  So we do a mini session now, and a longer session to get to know each other closer to the wedding date. It’s actually kind of fun to do mini sessions because we build into the next session climaxing at the wedding!  By that time everyone is comfortable with each other, and confident in front of the lens. Win-win!

Jill and Darin were going to do their mini session downtown, but as I was driving to the location it started to rain – hard enough for my windshield wipers to be on the medium setting! Oh, snap. So I called them and we switched locations to the church where they were filling in paperwork.  Thankfully in the 15 minutes it took me to drive there the rain stopped so we ended up being able to grab some fabulous outdoor images near the church!




For only having 15 minutes I thought we did rather well!

See you guys later this spring!
