Novi and Courtney’s engagement session this summer in Downtown Rochester was so much fun! I’ve known Courtney since elementary school, and I’m so happy to be a part of this exciting and special time for her and Novi. Firstly, we started the session off by grabbing a drink first at the local restaurant Kruse & Muer. It was so nice to catch up and learn more about Novi and Courtney before starting the session. But of course, I had to capture a few photos at the restaurant, especially because I love getting creative with ring shots! We then began walking around Downtown Rochester to capture some timeless pictures of this gorgeous, newly engaged couple!
Not to mention, the couple looked beautiful in their timeless styles. For instance, Courtney wore this green floral dress that was perfect for the summertime and just looked beautiful on her! Eventually, we made our way to the top of the parking garage in Downtown Rochester to take some more pictures. Courtney is a dancer and she also teaches it at a studio, so of course we had to take a few pictures of her and Novi dancing on top of the parking garage! I’m so glad we did this because the pictures turned out adorable! Novi and Courtney then did a quick outfit change for the other half of the engagement session.
Meanwhile, I was thinking about the next spots where we would capture some more romantic photos walking around Rochester. I also took some whimsical shots of Novi and Courtney dancing in the middle of the crosswalk that look beautiful!
And last but not least, I have to note that it was also great to see how supportive and loving Novi and Courtney were toward each other. That is they constantly complimented each other and made each other feel special, which made my job as a photographer even easier. This lovely couple will be getting married in the summer of 2022 and I couldn’t be more excited for them!
