St Anthony Main Engagement Photography | Chantel + Quinn

St Anthony Main Engagement Photography | Chantel + Quinn

Chantel + Quinn are natives of the Twin Cities area. They grew up here, met here, and fell in love here. But they moved to Kansas City recently for job opportunities. They still wanted to hold their wedding here in the Cities too, and chose to work with me on the photography for their big day. I’m so glad they did, they are so much fun!

Chantel + Quinn also wanted to take advantage of an engagement photo session. Because the Minneapolis area is their “homeland”, they decided to have their engagement photos taken at the quintessential Stone Arch Bridge and St Anthony Main area. We had to plan their session in advance for a weekend they could make the return five hour drive. Low and behold, the weather on their session date in May was absolutely perfect. The sun was shining, the air was warm, and the flowers were in full bloom. It was an ideal spring day!

We started their engagement session among the gorgeous flowering trees of Father Hennepin Bluffs Park. We then wandered up and down St Anthony Main, lingering among the architecture of the vintage mills and buildings. They made such a stunning, vintage-urban backdrop. We eventually worked our way back down St Anthony Main, through Father Hennepin Bluffs Park, and out to the Stone Arch Bridge for a sunset view. Chantel + Quinn really wanted those city views from the Bridge, and they were not disappointed. From the city views, to the flowering trees, to the vintage buildings, to the sunset over the river, everything looked so perfect. And the two of them were happy as could be – joy and laughter abound!

Chantel + Quinn, thank you so much for choosing to work with me for your beautiful engagement photos. I am so excited for your big day – coming up soon!
