Jana and Brady’s Fire Truck Engagement Session

16 Feb

I absolutely adore this cute couple’s personalized engagement session by Erin Johnson Photography!  Since Brady is a volunteer firefighter for the city of Victoria, they begun the photo shoot at the fire station, capturing some fun shots with the large bright red fire truck.  After the fire station, they finished the photo session at a beautiful outdoor location as the sun was setting.

From Jana:
How They Met
Brady and I were actually in the same homeroom in high school, so that is where we met.  We were friends for a few years and eventually made it “official” our junior year of high school and have been together ever since.

Engagement
We were engaged in January of last year when we went up north to my family’s cabin in Aitkin, MN for the weekend.  We had gone out ice fishing on the lake and Brady had tied a fake engagement ring to the end of my fishing line.  I’m not very intense about ice fishing so I was more concerned about the heater than fishing – Brady asked me if I needed a different lure to get me to notice the fake ring.  After noticing the huge, gaudy ring I joked “you think you’re sooo funny,” (our friends and family have been asking about marriage plans for quite a while as we have been dating for 8+ years).  Brady’s response was “Well I didn’t want you to drop the real one in the lake…”  He got down on one knee in the little ice house, pulled out the real ring, and asked me to marry him.  I was so surprised!  We popped some champagne he had brought along and celebrated.

Engagement Session
Brady is a volunteer Firefighter for the city of Victoria so that’s why we have the fire truck and station in quite a few of the photos.  We live in Victoria, MN and really love it out there so Erin was great at letting us pick places we wanted and also helping guide us with what might not be so great as far as locations.  The engagement session was so much fun!  Erin had great ideas and was so easy to be around.  It was fun for us to be able to be in places that meant a lot to us and doing things we love to do together.

Wedding
We were married on 12/31/12 at the McNamara Alumni Center and Erin just recently posted our wedding pictures to her blog.  She was absolutely fantastic to work with.  (I actually work at McNamara in the Events Dept. – so that is my plug for weddings and events here at McNamara).  I know I am quite biased but the space is absolutely beautiful!
