When discussing location ideas for Mairzy and Charlie’s engagement session, downtown St Paul was the at the top of the list. Their relationship has centered around this beautiful area they call home. Charlie even proposed overlooking the river at The Science Museum. The couple’s condo balcony is visible from the overlook, and with the help of family, Charlie devised an elaborate plan to light up a sign saying “Marry Me.” While Mairzy was looking on, a bit confused and convinced the sign couldn’t possibly be for her, Charlie was down on one knee asking her to be his wife.
Fast forward a few months, and we had the perfect summer evening for their session. We wandered around some of the most picturesque spots downtown, ending at gorgeous Irvine Park, where the to-be newlyweds were all smiles and laughs. Mairzy & Charlie, I can’t wait for your big day in August!
