Alyssa + Dave are natives of the Twin Cities area. They met at college in southern Minnesota, and lived down there for several years. They were engaged last year and also moved back to the Twin Cities. Once we started working together, they agreed they wanted to try an engagement photography session before their wedding day. They weren’t too sure about their ideal location, so I was happy to help them decide what worked best for them. They let me know that they loved being out in nature and also loved interesting architecture. We all agreed Father Hennepin Bluffs Park engagement photography was ideal for them – a tranquil park tucked inside of the urban heart of Minneapolis. What more could they ask for in their prewedding photography?
All during the week, the forecast threatened rain. We waited it out, however, and thankfully the weather during their engagement session was warm, sunny and clear! During their session, we worked our way through the beautiful greenery and vegetation of Father Hennepin Bluffs Park. We also spent some time down by the riverfront, below the Stone Arch Bridge, and lingered on the adorable wooden bridges scattered throughout the park. Alyssa + Dave braved the early-season mosquitoes well and were naturals in front of the camera!
We eventually worked our way closer to the Stone Arch Bridge, among the vintage stonework of the area – making for some stunning backdrops. We were really able to highlight a wonderful mix of vintage buildings, bridges and stonework among the lush greenery of Father Hennepin Bluffs. Everything looked so beautiful! And Alyssa + Dave were so happy to be together – they looked so cute!
Alyssa + Dave, thank you so much for choosing to work with me for your beautiful Father Hennepin Bluff Park engagement photography. I loved your prewedding photography, and I am so excited to see you on your wedding day – coming up later this summer!
