Alek’s & Junior’s Summer Engagement Session

June 18, 2023

Every photoshoot has its unique story, and sometimes, the most remarkable narratives unfold right before the camera lens. In a recent session with Aleks and Junior, I witnessed their initial nervousness evolve into pure comfort and genuine joy!! Through playful prompts, their true personalities and the essence of their relationship were captured!!

We decided to visit a local park right outside of Mankato, where we had tons of space to play, beautiful cliffs in the background, and a gorgeous bridge over a creek! At the beginning of our session, Aleks and Junior were pretty anxious — to break the ice and initiate a sense of ease, I wanted the both of them to play just like little kids!! It was amazing to witness how quickly their stress melted away, and instead, they showed laughter and genuine smiles!!

One prompt involved asking Aleks and Junior to share their favorite childhood memories with one another. Their faces lit up with nostalgia, and the childlike joy in their eyes was undeniable. The entire shoot was focused on making both of them laugh, smile, and be themselves!! Their entire gallery is a testament to their love story, recent engagement, and future wedding coming up in the summer of 2023!  

Aleks and Junior’s shoot serves as a reminder of the power of photography to capture genuine connections. t is my hope that Aleks and Junior cherish these images for years to come, as they serve as a beautiful reminder of the transformative power of vulnerability and the joy that awaits when we open ourselves up to what the camera can capture!!
