I met Jillian and Brent at a Caribou near my day job last year. I think we spent about two hours talking that night, good times. It was easy to see the fun they have with each other and the love they share. Their wedding is not scheduled until October so it was awhile before we saw each other again.
It was great to hear from them again in March as they put together plans for their engagement session which they wanted to do in April. They had some great ideas. One of the spots they wanted to shoot in was Inver Wood Golf Course in Inver Grove Heights. Brent had proposed to Jillian on a golf course (and it sounds like it was an amazing time… wished I had been there) so a golf course definitely seemed to be spot on. The people at Inver Wood were so accommodating. We had to work with them to find a time conducive to good lighting and also would not interrupt or disrupt the golfers out on the course. Thank you so much Inver Wood for all your help. They even provided us the kindest gentleman (Elmer) to cart us around the course.
We first started out at Lake Harriet… after the rain stopped. It was one of those days I thought would require a postponement of the shoot as the day had been so dismal up until about an 90 minutes before the shoot. The sun came out and while it was a bit windy and chilly Jillian and Brent pulled off the e-session in championship form.
Thanks Jillian and Brent for persevering through the chill and wind and thank you Inver Wood Golf Course for being so generous and kind.
