ENGAGED: Jess + Matt // North Dakota Engagement Photographer

Jess + Matt’s engagement session is definitely one of my favorite of ALL-TIME! For real. They invited me to Jess’ family’s lake cabin near Park Rapids, MN. I absolutely love when couples make the session their own with a unique spot. When Jess said that we wouldn’t need to travel anywhere else except the lake, I was pumped. Clearly if she thought we had enough places to run around, I would find plenty!! And boy, she didn’t disappoint. This property was GORGEOUS! Between the hidden forests, the white birch trees, the incredible rustic feel of the canoes and lake – I was in photog heaven 🙂 Jess + Matt were super awesome in front of the camera too – Matt has a way to make Jess laugh and feel comfortable – I so appreciated this! They included their adorable little pup, Nordy as well! I loved his protective nature of these two – it took him a bit to warm up to me and the camera, but once he did, he completely hamed it up for the images!! Their October wedding will definitely be beautiful with the fall leaves and cool temps. Enough talking, let’s get to the beautiful landscapes and the charming soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Gastecki 🙂 Enjoy!

I could live in those woods – they’re gorgeous 🙂
