Real Couple: Vintage Romance

I am so excited to be sharing this couple's engagement session with you for this weeks Wedding Wednesday feature.  Why is that you ask?  Well, the couple of these gorgeous photos happen to be the first clients for Cammi Lee Events!  Meet Molly and TJ!

I met Molly, the bride-to-be, soon after I graduated college when I started my first job for large festival-product event company.  Molly was the graphic designer {who does phenomenal work - she is designing all of my branding and web site... which should be released by the end of September!} and I worked as a Marketing Coordinator, so we worked quite closely with one another.  This girl is simply amazing - definitely one of the nicest girls I've ever met... and the drive and motivation she has to fulfill her dreams is certainly motivating!

Molly and TJ have such an adorable relationship - you can definitely tell they're so much in love with one another.  While TJ made it known in the beginning that he wasn't super excited to be out taking engagement photos {I really can't imagine there are many guys who are ecstatic about this part of the wedding planning} he loosened up and their photographer, Andrew Saxum of A.T.S. Photography, did an awesome job capturing their personalities in their engagement photos.

As their wedding coordinator, I went out with Molly, TJ and TJ's younger sister for their e-session.  The day was a little steamy and overcast, so we headed into downtown Minneapolis to get some city shots {I LOVE city photos!}.  After a couple of hours {and a bunch of photos later}, we headed to a gorgeous garden in the Uptown area.  Not 10 minutes into the photos at that location, it started down pouring... while it put a bit of a damper on our engagement photo parade, the rainy photos turned out so cute with the cute couple under their umbrella!

one of my absolute favorites!

another favorite!


Molly's vision for her wedding is Vintage Romance - think light pinks, creams, peaches, etc.  These photos could not have matched her vision more perfectly, if I do say so myself!  Her choice for attire is perfect for a vintage wedding, and we've got a few ideas up our sleeves to incorporate these AMAZING engagement photos into their big day... you'll have to stay tuned for that! :)
