Meet Lindsay and Kimberly, the wonderful ladies behind Pink Peony Weddings & Events! I first met Kimberly several years ago while we both worked in sales. I first met Lindsay a couple of years ago at a Mintahoe Tasting event at Nicollet Island Pavilion. She trusted me to do her boudoir session before she flew off to Italy for her wedding! I am so honored that these two asked me to photograph head shots and website photos for their new business. For this photo shoot, these two Minneapolis wedding planners brought along so many fun props! From pink peonies to champagne flutes to gold vases to actual day planners- we had a lot to play with! Plus- how gorgeous are these outfits? Love, love, love! Thanks for the fun shoot, ladies! Can’t wait to work with you two in the future!...
