Amrutha & Sam | Engagement Session


It was on a steamy Sunday morning a couple weeks ago that I met Amrutha and Sam for their engagement photos. This session had been in the works since mid-April when I originally met these two for the first time for a wedding consult over some coffee at Rustica.

Amrutha and Sam met at work when they were assigned to a project together. Over the course of the project, they developed a close friendship which laid a rock-solid foundation for their love to blossom. It doesn’t take long for anyone to be able to spot how deep their connection is to one another.


Sam and Amrutha got engaged near US Bank stadium right before attending a concert on a date night. They told me the story of how Sam had originally planned to propose on a walk across the Stone Arch bridge before the concert, and then how those plans got foiled by someone else with the exact same idea! He improvised well shortly after with a proposal in The Commons in the heart of downtown Minneapolis instead.

Fast forward a little bit to this summer and these two just closed on their first home together and are planning a fall wedding ceremony at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking!

I am so excited to be a part of Amrutha and Sam’s special day this September. They are planning an intimate ceremony with only family and close friends on the patio at the French Meadow Bakery.

Shortly after the ceremony here in the US, the newlyweds will travel to India for another more traditional Indian ceremony with Amrutha’s extended family - I only wish I could capture that with my camera!

Stay tuned to the blog for more on these two coming this fall…
