Courtney + Blake live (and spend a lot of time) in downtown Minneapolis. They wanted quintessential Minneapolis engagement photography, so the Stone Arch Bridge fit the bill perfectly. I proposed Father Hennepin Bluff Park prewedding photography, as there are so many gorgeous locations which feature the Stone Arch Bridge in the background, and the addition of the river and trees would for such beautiful engagement photos. They agreed in a heartbeat!
We visited Father Hennepin Bluff Park in the early fall, when the leaves were changing and the sun was getting lower in the sky. The park was ablaze with the golden sun and bridge, cool river, and green and fall-toned leaves – it was absolutely gorgeous for our session! The crowds of people filling the park and bridge were evidence that many Minneapolis folks felt the same way. We had such a great time meandering through the beautiful park and creating amazing engagement portraits together. Courtney + Blake also wanted to include their sweet dog Jágr into the photos. She was so patient and cooperative for the session – a real trooper!
Courtney + Blake, thank you so much for choosing to work with me for your Father Hennepin Bluff Park Minneapolis engagement photography. I loved your prewedding photography! I am so happy for the two of you, and so excited for your wedding next year! And Courtney, your parent’s farm and home will be such a gorgeous backdrop as you both tie the knot. I am excited to see the barn once it has been finished up in all it’s glory!
