Katie & Matt were a ton of fun to shoot with during this summertime Lake Calhoun engagement session. Now named Bde Maka Ska, this lake is one of the most popular areas for engagement photos in Minneapolis.

We first grabbed some kayaks and headed out on the water of beautiful Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. After we got off the lake we grabbed some Nice Ride bikes and rode around the lake for a bit. We then made a quick stop at Stella’s Fish Cafe in Uptown to take in the sunset from their beautiful rooftop patio. We ended our session at Comedy Sportz where Katie & Matt met for the first time. Matt is a comedian (and cinematographer) and Katie had followed his YouTube channel for some time and “stalked” him at one of his stand up comedy performances.  😉

I’ll include a separate gallery below this one as they incorporated some of the goofiness of the Bloomington Brothers into the shoot as well…letter jacket and all. Check out Matt’s Nickelback parody video on his YouTube Channel which has well over 1 million views.
