Jesse + Misty | Engagement Photography
This past weekend Maycee Vinae Photography traveled to Minnesota for an engagement session. This wasn’t the first time MVP has had the pleasure of shooting at Phelp’s Mill. My brother and sister-in-law did part of their engagement session there too so I was a little worried the images would look really similar to Jesse and Misty’s pictures. I think we did a good job though at finding different locations around the mill. It also helped that it was the opposite time of day. We couldn’t really use most of those spots anyway.
Speaking of time of day- I think we also hit the nail on the head for the starting time of their session. We began their portraits inside the mill while the sun was still shining pretty bright; then ended by the water with some dreamy golden hour light- perfecto! Just before sunset is my favorite time to shoot because you get that gorgeous glow and a bit of lens flare if you wish. Who wouldn’t want that?!
Jesse and Misty decided to do a destination wedding in Jamaica- which would make for some beautiful pictures! It sounds like the resort sends you a book with all the different options for photographers, flowers, table setups, etc and you just check the box next to each item you choose. The resort then takes care of it all. That sounds like my kind of wedding planning! I of course don’t know from experience but everyone always talks about how stressful wedding planning can be. Just skip all of that and get married on a beautiful island instead. 🙂
The mill tried its best to smoke us out. It was hotter than heck in there! The heat and humidity didn’t stop us from getting some awesome shots though. Check them out for yourself.
Jesse & Misty- thanks a bunch for an awesome session; best of luck finishing up wedding planning!
