Brittany and Jesse first met while she was on her way to work, and from that moment on, they both knew that what they had was something special. They both love going mountain biking, and really anything that the whole family can do together. Jesse has a 9 year old son, Tanner, and they all love having family time together. Brittany and Jesse both coach Tanner’s soccer team, and Jesse also coaches Tanner’s hockey team. Talk about an athletic family! The couple also spends a lot of their time supporting Tee It Up for the Troops, since they are both veterans!
I first met this couple in Maui during the Minnesotan Annual Potluck. My wife and I talked to Brittany and Jesse the majority of the time because we were the only two couples under the age of 50. Brittany took my business card just in case she might want to reach out to me in the future, maybe hinting at Jesse to pop the question! Luckily, Jesse proposed 9 months later on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. Brittany said it was so romantic and they couldn’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together! And of course I got a call from them shortly after to take their engagement pictures!
I was really excited for this engagement shoot since I already met Brittany and Jesse in Maui. Tanner was kicking his soccer ball around the whole time and I loved looking at the plants with him. I bonded a lot with Tanner and by the end of the shoot he told me he wanted to be a photographer, just like me, which was pretty cool to hear a 9 year old say. This family was so energetic and we all had a blast shooting at Coldwater Spring Park. You can tell that this family has a really special bond that will last forever!
