Guthrie Theater Engagement Session / Lindsey + Brad
Lindsey and Brad met at a party. They didn’t speak a word to each other until they both were walking to their cars and struck up a conversation. Little did they know, what started as a chit chat on the way out the door would turn into spending a lifetime together. Their wedding day is fast approaching, but with the snow still on the ground in Minneapolis, it looks like their Guthrie Theater engagement session could have taken place yesterday.
Their engagement session happened this January. Since it was so cold, they wanted a unique indoor space that had some great architecture, but also wanted to get outside and frolic in the snow for a few, so the Guthrie Theater seemed like a natural choice.
Lindsey was once a wedding photographer, which made their session so easy. She understood where the light was and despite feeling nervous, looked so natural. Brad and her have an electric chemistry. They both are so relaxed but are also outgoing and easy to talk to.
They shared not only their love story but also about wedding planning. I learned Lindsey has a love for Elvis and there will be an Elvis impersonator performing during their cocktail hour – I’m so excited! They are keeping their day simple and true to themselves – that’s what they want it to about – their love and their closest friends and family celebrating it.
After some photos in the Guthrie Theater, they bundled up for a few photos at Mill City Ruins Park just down the road. It had gotten much cooler, actually let’s would call it freezing, and the wind had picked up. They ripped off their coats and snuggled tight for a few moments until their fingers and noses turned red and lost feeling. It was just enough time for a few great natural looking photos.
I’ll be sharing more from their wedding day on my blog, can’t wait to see them both again!
The Guthrie has to be one of my favorite places to take photos at. If you are having a wedding there – I’m your gal- find my contact page and reach out! Here’s another engagement session from this gem of a space in downtown Minneapolis.
