Carina Photographics is based in the Minneapolis - St Paul MN area (also called the Twin Cities). The Twin Cities is comprised of Minneapolis and St Paul, as well as numerous suburbs of each main city. As a Minneapolis wedding photographer, Joanna Carina loves working thought out the entire Twin Cities area to craft gorgeous wedding and portrait photography with her clients. Each city and suburb has beautiful locations, hidden gems, popular destinations and lesser-known fun spots that not everyone knows about. Joanna makes it her mission to find the best locations in each area to work with each client based on their personalities and needs.

While both Minneapolis and Saint Paul have many well-known locations, we want to take a moment to highlight some of the areas we like to work outside of these cities. Minnesota is blessed with such suburban gems as Stillwater, Lakeville, Edina, Mound, Anoka and Roseville. This is a good start, but by no means an exhaustive list of all the amazing places to go and things to see and do in each area.

Read each section below to gather some ideas of where you can visit and what you can do during your wedding or portrait session in these locations. If you are interested in working in any of these locations, be sure to give Joanna a call to see if you'd be a great fit together!
