Amanda and Dan were engaged in December of 2013, and they were excited to have their Centennial Lakes Park engagement photos taken at the same location and time of year that they were engaged.
We went to Centennial Lakes Park because that is where Dan proposed to Amanda – more specifically, he asked her right on the beautiful bridge overlooking the lakes! We visited Centennial Lakes Park on a pretty blustery January day. We couldn’t complain too much, as the two days prior to our session saw another polar vortex closing the schools in Minnesota (the third time this year!) It was a “balmy” 24 degree day, but the wind really made it bitter. Amanda and Dan were champs though — they were great at throwing off their coats when the time was right to get our photos, they stood on the bridge amid the freezing wind, and they even laid on the ice, all in the name of capturing great photos! Here are just a few of their images to share.
Thanks for working with me as your Minneapolis engagement photographer, Amanda and Dan. I loved creating your Centennial Lakes Park engagement photos. I’m so excited for your big day in August, and I’m pretty sure there will be no sign of a polar vortex!
