Kaleigh and Cory braved a deep Minnesota chill to charm their way through an epic Stillwater engagement session and cuddle up for some beautiful photography. They warmed up by candlelight in a local pub, adventured through some epic caves, and strolled hand in hand through the Capital. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Their engagement in Kaleigh’s own words:
“The proposal was amazing! Cory and I went to Colorado in September and we were hiking in Estes Park and we stopped to soak up the gorgeous scenery. Little did I know he was planning to pop the question at that time! Cory read off this adorable speech and I turned to blubber. It was a little challenging for him to get down on one knee given the fact that we were on a giant lumpy rock, but he did his best and tried getting down on his knee and asked me to marry him. To end the day, we saw Rascal Flatts at Red Rocks Amphitheater that night – definitely a day that both of us will remember forever!”
To kick off Kaleigh and Cory’s Stillwater engagement session, we took them to Portside, a lovely little pub in just off the St. Croix river.
Cory and Kaleigh rocked this sweep-em-off-their-feet deep dip, worthy of the Penny Photographics record books! We believe the dip is for everyone 🙂
After some romantic cave spelunking, we headed to the Capital Building in St. Paul to take advantage of its sweeping marble scapes.
A perk to a Stillwater engagement session? It’s so close to the Twin Cities that you can fit a ton of awesome urban spots in with your small town getaway!
