When Kim and Lucas and I first started planning for their engagement photography, they mentioned the Stone Arch Bridge as being a place they really gravitated toward. They loved the beauty of the old stone and archways of the bridge coupled with the city buildings. However, they also mentioned the challenge of not wanting to be in a bright, sunny location, and being right on top of the Stone Arch Bridge doesn’t exactly give you any shade. Luckily, I absolutely love to create Father Hennepin Bluff Park prewedding photography, located right below and next to the Stone Arch Bridge, among lots of of vegetation, trees, trails, wooden bridges, and even the water’s edge of the river. Kim and Lucas were more than happy to spend our session at the park when I told them how perfect it was for them!
We visited the park on a late weekday afternoon, and we were in luck – the weather was perfect and the park was nearly empty! We had plenty of time to wander around the trails, bridges, stairways and beach and have fun chatting and laughing and getting cute photos of the two of them spending time together. We had a blast and our session seemed to be over in a flash (or at least until the sun went down and it was practically dark outside lol!) The two of them were even able to head out afterward to a nearby restaurant and enjoy a lovely, romantic dinner.
Kim and Lucas, I had such a great time working with you on your engagement photography, thank you so much for choosing to work with me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer. And of course, I am so excited for your Aria Minneapolis wedding photos next year – it’s going to be awesome!
