Best Locations for Minneapolis Engagement Photos
We get asked all the time where are our favorite location are to photograph engagement pictures. Some of our favorite spots are a closely guarded secret, but here are a few of the most popular spots around Minneapolis and St. Paul for photos.
Stone Arch Bridge Engagement Photos
There is a reason that on any given night of the week in the summer you'll see a half dozen photo sessions taking place in the area. The stone arch bridge
combines with Father Hennepin Park and the Mill city ruins along the iconic Minneapolis river front. Here you'll find awesome views of the Minneapolis skyline, brick buildings, a cobblestone street, a railroad bridge, big trees and of course the Mississippi river. What makes this so popular of an area for photos is the big variety of options. Of course most people get at least one photo on the bridge, but really there is so much variety that no two session in the area look the same. Here is one of our favorite sessions from the Stone Arch Bridge and Main Street area.
Minnehaha Falls Engagement Session Minnehaha Falls
is another great spot for engagement photos. Just like at the Stone Arch Bridge you'll see several sessions happening here on a nice evening in the summer. Why is it so popular for photos? You have beautiful huge oak trees, hundreds of stone steps, a big waterfall and numerous stone bridges crisscrossing over the Minnehaha Creek. With the variety of backdrops it really is a great spot for engagement pictures, especially if you can find a time when it's not too busy. The park can even be busy in the winter, but much less so then on those perfect fall days. Here is one of our favorite winter engagement sessions at Minnehaha Falls.
Downtown Minneapolis Engagement Photos
We have a lot of couples tell us that they really love Minneapolis and the skyline. However, the Stone Arch Bridge isn't quite the right fit for them. If you're looking for engagement pictures that are a little more urban consider heading just east of downtown into the warehouse district. In this area you'll find an awesome mix of architecture and urban decay that makes for great photo backdrops. You'll end up walking a little bit, but the photo opportunities are definitely worth it. After taking photos in the city head across the river to boom island. This is one of our favorite locations for wedding and engagement photography. You're able to get nice views of downtown framed by big trees. Here is one of my favorite Minneapolis urban engagement sessions
