There is so many romantic ways to propose, and one of the best ways to make it special for your spouse is by capturing the moment with photos. As a photographer, doing Proposal photography in the Twin cities and all over Minnesota is one of my all time favorite! There is such a high emotion and joy! Photographing this unique moment is a wonderful way to save it and make it a gift for your soon to be spouse!
Before we get planning let’s do a Quick Surprise Proposal Checklist of all the things you need for a successful proposal:
If you are just starting to make plans, I am happy to help you sharing my favorite spots to propose! There are many ways to propose, and many location ideas that I can provide based on your own inspiration. Let’s start with the best popular locations to propose!
When finding a location to propose you will want to make it something that is special, meaningful or stunning! Some couples look for a stunning backdrop while others choose for a more secluded spot. It truly depends on your personalities and what your favorite person might like!
If you want to have a postcard photo of your favorite skyline! This bridge is gorgeous all year, in the summer nights or in snowy December nights!
Proposing during a trip to the Rose garden in the summer is perfect to sneak out to the gorgeous Lyndale Rose Garden and get on one knee when she least expects it!
The best is that there is a cute fountain in the center of the garden that is a great location for this.
The falls are in the middle of the city and are GORGEOUS! This popular location is really a wonderful spot to do a surprise proposal.
Good all year because of the beautiful skyline, and even more perfect in the fall, Boom Island Park in Northeast Minneapolis is a gorgeous park with stunning view of the city of Minneapolis!
This iconic park is a wonderful spot for something special! Proposing at the North Shore is a wonderful idea for outdoor lovers.
Thinking of a gorgeous garden ? The Como Zoo Conservatory is great all year for a proposal. They rent out the space for a half an hour just for you! Is a wonderful choice for the Winter !
Here is my favorite park to catch in December: Rice Park with all the twinkle lights. Is incredibly magical to be there!
One of our 10 000 lakes in Minnesota will be a great backdrop for this moment!

If you are more of a private couple and want to keep this moment to just you two without friends and family, but still want to share the news, is a great idea to have us capture it to share it later.
You are so swept up in the proposal that will be so precious to have some visual aid to remember how it felt!
The gorgeous photos will be a great way to share your news with family and friends, as well as make it into cute announcements for social media or save the date cards!
Absolutely! We can hide them in a bush – I have done many proposals where family is in town visiting for the proposal and it adds such a wonderful element to the celebration of an already wonderful moment!

"Those photos are AMAZING! Thank you so much for capturing the memories of our special day. We will certainly treasure them forever & I’m so glad Nic found you in Minneapolis! "
Laura went above and beyond to capture our wedding day. We had a few special requests, like some photos with our dog and photos of each table, and she took these in stride. We wanted the focus of the photography to be on our families, since we are rarely in one place at one time, and I feel like she succeeded in this 100% - all of the photos reflect the love and importance of family togetherness. She was so kind, compassionate, and incredibly easy to work with. She made the process effortless so that I could focus my time and energy on other aspects of the day and did not have to worry about the photography side of it at all. I would highly recommend Laura!
We are so incredibly happy that we chose Laura as our wedding photographer! Throughout the whole planning process, she was open, friendly and extremely helpful. She was quick to respond to all of my questions and I always felt like we were on the same page. Through every step of the process, she was there for us with her amazing ideas and suggestions. I really appreciated Laura’s calm demeanor on the big day – she was very professional and non-intrusive. Even more than being very organized and pleasant to work with, she is an exceptionally talented photographer!! We are so happy with all of our photos.
Laura’s wonderful work is going to help us remember how beautiful and joyous our wedding day was for the rest of our lives. Thanks so much, Laura – we appreciate you more than you know!
