I can honestly say I’d never done an outdoor early spring engagement photography session prior to working with Lauren + Wes. Either the snow and cold were too much for my couples, or the land was too brown and muddy, or they chose a different time of year, or they preferred to have photographs taken indoors, etc. So when Lauren + Wes decided on Bryant Lake Regional Park prewedding photography (one of the Three Rivers Parks District parks) in early April, I had no idea what to expect. I live very close to another Three Rivers Park, Silverwood, and I have photographed there a ton and I love it soooooo much, and I was hoping it would be similar. I was not disappointed!
From the beautiful sunset we witnessed, to the loons calling on the lake, to all the other birds and critters we saw and heard, we had such a great time! The light snow over the winter meant the grasses were still rich, gold, and abundant. Even the lack of leaves on the trees did not disappoint – they made for amazing structure and texture in many of our images. And the sky cooperated as well – a misty sun and touches of blue peeked through textured clouds. Very moody and dramatic light! The park had a very renowned disc golf course, and since Lauren + Wes were avid disc golfers, we even spent some time taking photos of them with one of their favorite pastimes too.
Thank you so much for choosing to work with me as your Minneapolis wedding photographer Lauren + Wes! I had so much fun with your Bryant Lake Regional Park engagement photography. I love how your prewedding photography looks! I am so happy for you both, and so excited for your big day!
