When I started working with Karen + Harrison as their Minneapolis wedding photographer, they were so excited about doing their engagement photography. They were new to the Twin Cities area, and loved hiking and spending time together in nature. I gave them a few ideas of places that might work, and they decide they wanted Hidden Falls Regional Park prewedding photography. I was so excited – I had never photographed a session there before, and I’ve always wanted to work with someone there. Hidden Falls Park certainly did not disappoint – it was absolutely spectacular for our photo session!
We were lucky that the water was pretty high during this point of the year (usually during the fall in Minnesota, rivers are rather low and waterfalls can be pretty dried up.) Our first stop at Hidden Falls itself was just perfect – the waterfall was bubbling and rushing and gorgeous! And Karen + Harrison were happy to climb around anywhere I asked of them. They are so cute together! We also spent time on the amazing stone staircase before heading out to the next leg of our session.
After the waterfall area we headed over closer to the river. We spent some time photographing them hiking through the woods and on the banks of the adorable creek, as well as pausing on the quaint bridge. Then we headed down to the riverside to photograph them with the beach and some of the gorgeous trees. Again we were so lucky the water was high – the trees looked amazing surrounded by the river! And the sun was setting just as we were finishing up with our session – spectacular!
Karen + Harrison, thank you so much for choosing to work with me for your engagement and wedding photography. I adored your prewedding photography and spending time with you guys, and I hope you enjoy your beautiful engagement album for years to come. I am so excited for your wedding next year!
