PROPOSAL LOCATION: Mississippi Riverfront, St. Anthony Main, Minneapolis, MN

Baby, it’s cold outside… but that didn’t stop Livja from telling Katy how much she loved her and how excited she was to spend forever together! On a cold November night, Livja invited Katy to meet her at St. Anthony Main. She wanted to make their proposal special, set to the twinkling lights of the city they fell in love. After a (very) brief walk along St. Anthony Main, Livja pulled Katy in and got down on one knee. An ecstatic Katy shrieked in excitement, whipped her purse a la Mary Tyler Moore and in their excitement, the ring suddenly went flying into the snow! “I’ll dig for it with my bare hands!” Katy cried out. A quick search found the sparkler and the two lovebirds made it official!

CONGRATULATIONS, you two!

Rachel + Corey | Riverfront Proposal at Dusk - Minneapolis Engagement Photographer

PROPOSAL LOCATION: Central Mississippi Riverfront Regional Park, Minneapolis, MN

You never know where you will find your soulmate. For Rachel and Corey, that place was their college freshman English class. Fast forward 3 years and Corey was ready to ask Rachel to spend forever with him.

To plan this proposal, Corey and I were secretly exchanging texts, calls, maps, and ideas to make every detail perfect! As the proposal day drew closer, Mother Nature decided that rain was in the forecast… so we sneakily switched the date of their proposal one day earlier to avoid a weekend full of rain!

The morning of the proposal arrived and the weather was perfect. As they arrived to the park at dusk, the very last hints of daylight were touching the riverbluffs. With the iconic Stone Arch Bridge behind them, Corey dropped to one knee and asked Rachael to be his wife. SHE SAID YES!

Congratulations again, lovebirds! What an honor to be a part of such a perfect moment for you both!

Shaina + Jonathan | Loring Park Proposal - Minneapolis Proposal Photographer

Planning a proposal from afar in a city you have only visited a few times can be a challenge -- especially when your future fiance is by your side 24/7 on a 5 month roadtrip!  Jonathan secretly planned to propose to Shaina when they arrived back in the Twin Cities to visit her family before taking off on a vacation.  We had one shot, one night, to pull this off! 

After numerous emails back and forth (because we couldn't chat on the phone!), the plan was to take Shaina out for some handcrafted cocktails and then go for a walk through the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.  Many screenshots of Google Maps later, we had a game plan.  The forecast looked touch and go, but the morning of the proposal, the radar was looking great for the evening's proposal.

The couple started their adventure off at Parlour, and enjoyed some of Minneapolis' top handcrafted cocktails and the famous Parlous burgers.  Then the winds shifted and the rain began and it seemed touch and go with whether or not this proposal would even happen as planned or if we'd have to come up with a new plan B on a whim.  A double rainbow graced the skies in the moments before the proposal.

Just as we were about to call for an impromptu Plan B.... the rain stopped and the skies cleared just in time for a perfect proposal!  After strolling through the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens, the couple made their way through Loring Park and found themselves walking through a picturesque alleyway that reminded them of the beautiful architecture in Europe, where they had been living.

Jonathan dropped to one knee and asked Shaina to spend forever with him -- she said YES!  After lots of hugs and kisses, laughs and a few tears, they were greeted by family and close friends waiting at the nearby Cafe Lurcat.  It was the perfect ending to a perfect evening!

Congratulations, lovebirds!
