Zack & Katie’s Lakeside Engagement Session in Excelsior

Zack & Katie’s Lakeside Engagement Session in Excelsior

Zack & Katie’s lakeside engagement session in Minnetonka/Excelsior last week came at the perfect time–it was just before the Twin Cities got hit with that awful, humid heat wave! We hit a few stops in Minnetonka before ending our session in beautiful Excelsior. If you’ve ever been to downtown Excelsior, you know that it is an absolutely picturesque, resort-like little town that hosts a port of Lake Minnetonka.  Before I get ahead of myself, though, let me introduce the lovely couple!

Katie was one of the first friends I made when I started working for Minnetonka Schools back in 2014. She and I were in teacher orientation together, and went on to work on the same kindergarten team! She grew to be a dear friend and wonderful colleague. Over the two years we taught together, we spent numerous hours bouncing ideas off each other, brainstorming teaching methods and sharing humorous classroom stories. If you know her, you know she is pure sunshine :) so I knew her fiancé Zack would be equally incredible.

Their story is straight out of a fairy tale. Katie and Zack are high school / college sweethearts, and first met at a summer job on the golf course! Their first formal “meeting” came when Zack trained her in at the course, in the bag room. She introduced herself, but he already knew who she was from seeing her at school {so cute, right?!}. The rest is history! These two lovebirds got engaged on a beautiful bridge at a Minnetonka park, which as you will see was our second stop for photos. {The first stop was the Minnetonka Fire Station…did I mention Zack is a fireman!?} No more words are necessary…I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Congrats to the future Mr. and Mrs. Rolighed!
