michelle + kenny ~ engagement photography

This past weekend I spent my Saturday afternoon with this beautiful couple. Their names may look familiar to you all because they were one of the two groups chosen at random for my Pay It Forward giveaway session! 🙂
These two are at the very start of planning the rest of their lives together (Kenny proposed to Michelle on his birthday on January 19th). And having just graduated from college, they are in the process of settling into life, trying to find jobs and figuring out what their future holds. They drove all the way down from Rochester, Minnesota for this session – and I was so happy they did!
Here’s are a few of my favorites from the time we spent together… 🙂


They said they’d never had their photos taken professionally before – so they were pretty nervous – but I think they rocked it! Don’t you?!




I wish you two all the best!
