Minneapolis Engagement sessions

Hey there! I am Laura - After nine years being a Minneapolis Engagement Session Photographer and Wedding Photographer I am able to walk it around with my eyes closed! Well, maybe, not quite, but pretty darned close ! I would love getting to photograph you in the city I call home ! 

Minneapolis Wedding & Engagement Photographer

Candid and emotional storytelling


Minneapolis is truly gorgeous! Not only is full of wonderful restaurants, bars and cafes, it is also full of nature!
Minneapolis has a ton of lakes, creaks and nature areas that you can find easily, allowing for multiple backgrounds and date ideas!

Minneapolis : So much to see and do!

Where to do your engagement photos in Minneapolis?

For locations in Minneapolis and surrounding areas, I recommend my couples to think about a place that makes them feel very them. What does this mean?

A place that feels very you can be somewhere meaningful to you and your relationship, where your first date was, or a place that you frequent a lot together.

Another way to accomplish the same is exploring somewhere new together! Depending on your personalities this could be a new neighborhood around the city or it could mean taking a hike outside the city! This experience should feel like it fits your personalities!

Minneapolis is gorgeous during the summer and fall! It has many spots with nature, great city views, colorful neighborhoods and restaurant fronts.

Close to the cities you can find great areas such as St Anthony Main, Nicollet Island, Stone Arch Bridge, and Minnehaha falls.
When we pick a location, even if it’s a location I have already photographed at, your photos won’t look exactly like any other! We will be exploring the area and making sure we are focusing on you two, while taking photos at the same time.

Irina and Andrew’s Stone Arch engagement session was incredibly sweet and fun! The light was perfect, and it was just breezy enough to show off how beautiful and flowing Irina’s dress is. Irina and Andrew’s love made their session absolutely effortless. It was so easy to capture how much they care for one another because […]

These two planned a weekend away from their sweet Texas home and came all the way to Minneapolis to see the Twins, take some romantic engagement portraits and have Izzy’s ice cream. Mid-session ice cream for me too! Yay! We had such a blast exploring the city together.  Not only did we get to have our […]

We did the most adorable brewery engagement photos at Wild Mind in Minneapolis, just around my neighborhood! These two wanted to do a very casual engagement session, so we did it date night style: first some Ales at the best brewery in town, and then we took a stroll around Minnehaha Parkway. The sun setting […]

On of my favorite area for a Twin Cities Engagement Session is St Anthony Main. The lovely paths are filled with historic buildings, cafes and a view of the Minneapolis skyline.  There are many different spots for photos, and even a couple of covered spots that could work for a rainy day! For this sunset […]

I adored spending time with Nia and Nathaniel for their engagement session in Minneapolis! We had one of the best fall days this year for their session, and I really enjoyed getting to know them better . They are just sweetest couple, and they have most fun together- It truly is an honor to be part […]

A cozy winter engagement session is so much fun! Especially when, after some photos at home, we get to go outside and play in the snow a little bit! Anna and John wanted to celebrate their engagement with a photo session at their oh-so-beautiful home in Minneapolis! Their puppy, Sasha, joined us for intermittent moments, […]

Meeting Amy and Adam for early sunrise engagement photos around Minnehaha Falls was the perfect start to a beautiful summer day. When you are visiting a familiar place in a totally different light, it sparks something in you.  Specially if you happen to meet with two amazing new friends 🙂  There were almost no one […]

This gorgeous lake Harriet engagement session feels so dreamy! The fall was so busy and I am finally catching up with my blog to post my favorite sessions! Awesome couple + so much fun = wonderful pictures! I had a blast. I really can’t ask for a better job !  I don’t know if it […]

The great thing about Minneapolis is that you can go to multiple kinds of "dates" around the same spot. You can go to the lake, take a stroll, grab a beer. Thinking of your session as a date helps gets you less nervous about the idea and more focused on each other and the love you share!

It’s time to decide what to wear for your session! Here are some tips to help you out!
