Stephanie + Travis had been hoping to have their engagement photography session for quite awhile now. However, with wedding planning, several international trips and even a new home purchase, our prewedding photography session had to be pushed back until we were finally able to hold it barely a month from their wedding day. The two of them are going to be married at the Minneapolis Club in downtown Minneapolis, and the city vibe is important to them and their day, so naturally, Stone Arch Bridge engagement photos seemed to be a perfect fit for them. We planned to work in the cute little Father Hennepin Bluff Park right below the bridge so we could have some spectacular scenery around us. And as expected, the park did not disappoint. The quaint trails, wooden bridges, river’s edge, and views of the Stone Arch Bridge all gave the feel that we were miles out of the city, even though we were really in the midst of it all.
As a bonus, I recently decided to dust off my film camera and work to create some beautiful, timeless black and white film images during our session, and I’m so happy to say that it felt like I just picked up where I left off all those years ago. I LOVE these film images! I’ve worked exclusively digital for about 12 years now, and while there is a place in my heart for the pure, rich color achieved with my digital images, there are some significant structural differences with film that I was missing all these years. I’m happy to be back!
Stephanie + Travis, I am so thankful to you for choosing to work with me for your Stone Arch Bridge engagement photography, as well as on one of the biggest days of your lives. And I am so happy you enjoyed your prewedding photography too! I am so excited for your wedding day!
ETA: Be sure to take a look at their gorgeous Minneapolis Club wedding photos too!
