Ryan's goal was to make the engagement shoot the shortest it could be, and at the same time have Megan be happy with the photos. Hopefully we accomplished both. Also, dogs during engagement shoots seem to be only focused on rabbits. Have a look!

What a wild couple. One really wanted to be there, and the other was rather indifferent, but it was still fun none-the-less. I think you'll be able to tell who was most excited about the shoot.

Kelsey + Andrew Engagement | Fargo, ND

Meet Kelsey and Andrew. Equipped with a pineapple shirt and a cute sun hat, we cruised around town and took some pics. I nearly had to replace my shoes from the mud, but it was worth it for this river shot. If you're recently engaged, please send me a message and we'll get your photos taken care of!

It was super cold for this shoot, but I think we avoided too many red noses. 

Just got engaged? Let's chat.

Aaron + Michelle: 10 Year Anniversary / Photo Recreation

Welcome to this blog post. I don't think I've ever had a better 30 minutes of shooting before.

I've only known Aaron and Michelle for a couple months now. They own Junkyard Brewing Company, and I've consumed oh-so-much of their beer, so thanks for that. 

Since it was their 10th anniversary, they wanted to recreate some old cheesy wedding images. Aaron picked a flower, which was probably a weed, and we reproduced those photos the best we could.

ANNND....here's the old shot.

Here is another trial at redoing an old photo. Note the awkward hand placement on the neck. They are much better at looking classy now, so we had to try hard to make it cheesy.

I think they look even better now than in this one below.

We couldn't finish a blog without a shot of Aaron trying to be cool. Happy Anniversary, guys!

Send me a message if you want an anniversary shoot or any other sort of photos. Also, go to Junkyard Brewing Company and catch Aaron off-guard by telling him he looks cute in these photos.

So many giggles in this session. What a goofy couple, in the best way.

So this was our 'CPR' shot. It kinda looked like Josh had passed out and Rachel had to revive him.

Their wedding wont be for a while, but like Friesen Photography to stay tuned, or shoot me a message to set up a session.

Jared + Andrea: Engagement

Jared + Andrea: Engagement

Jared + Andrea were terrified that they'd be awkward when it came to engagement photos. They were incredibly fun, and I think the session went better than they expected. They were very natural, and certainly in love.

They told me the story about meeting online. I asked them about their first kiss and Jared seemed opposed to the idea of Andrea talking about it, but she went on.

"So we had been dating for two or three months and hadn't kissed yet. One night we were sitting on the couch in my apartment and Jared turns to me. I thought he was going to tell me some really bad news. He said, 'so we haven't kissed yet.' Like really Jared, this is how you were going to do it?!'

There were a couple shots where Andrea consoled Jared after the story.

We were in the car and Andrea told me another story about their 5th date. She thought she saw her mom at the restaurant, so she dove under the table. That actually happened - Jared confirmed it. She so badly didn't want her mom to meet him under those circumstances. Somehow they recovered from it.

I like to do winking shots. Neither of them were exceptional at it. Jared thought he could do better since Andrea apparently winks with both eyes. It's okay though, I do too.

Sometimes I'll run out into the very middle of the street and tell the couple to run across. It usually surprises them, and Andrea said she was concerned for my well-being.

I know your guys' wedding is going to be a blast based on this shoot.
