Melissa and Mike first met in college at the University of Denver. She grew up in the good ole' Midwest and he was a California boy. Mike had thought a lot about his proposal and he ended up popping the question on Christmas Eve on White Bear Lake! Side note...this was also Mike's first time ever on a frozen lake! To continue the cold-weather tradition, the couple who now lives in San Diego, are coming back to Minneapolis to get married in December! I was lucky enough to catch the couple in town to photograph their engagement session while it was still sunny and warm in the midwest! Melissa's father has a pretty sweet car that we were able to take for a spin and it proved to be the best prop for their session!
Congratulations to Melissa and Mike on their engagement! Many more photos of these two..in the snow...to come!
