01-cute minnesota farm engagement session

I first met Liz years ago – we both competed in the Miss America Scholarship Program – She was Miss Brainerd Lakes – I Miss Winona – ahhhhh good times 🙂 Lots of makeup, hairspray and chicken cutlets – if you know what I mean then we just know 😉

I digress – fast forward many years and now Liz is engaged to Glenn and we get to photograph their wedding any engagement!  We had the distinct honor of photographing them at Liz’s family farm – her aunt and uncle currently live on the property – but it goes back FIVE generations!  I just loved EVERYTHING about this barn.

It is currently used as a sheep farm – I had NO idea how much I just LOVE sheep! No joke!  I want to move, like now – and get some land just so I can have sheep and sit outside and listen to them baa!  Oh.my.word.  I don’t think I have every laughed so much in a session – all from the sheep!!  They were EVERYwhere – every building, every pen – every size and age and type of shave/cuts…. Ugh.  I think I was in heaven there!

The really cool part is that they actually supply the sheep for the Miracle of Birth center at the Minnesota State Fair!!  AWESOME!

As awesome as the sheep are – so are Liz and Glenn – they were such troopers in the cold weather we were having {and really strong winds!} and made it through the session with flying colors! I know it has been hot lately – but it certainly wasn’t that evening!

Okay – I’ll quit my babbling and just let you enjoy the pictures!!  Can’t WAIT for your wonderful September wedding guys!

I just fell in love with this particular barn – plus it provided from protection from the wind and we acclimated ourselves to the cold!

The variety of chickens on the farm was so neat – like being at the state fair!

These two settled into posing with each other pretty quickly – that always makes it easy on us!

And I think this was when I was chuckling the most – the llama with the sheep – such a hoot!
