Rebecca + Derik’s sunset engagement session was at one of my absolutely FAVORITE places in the Twin Cities - the Lyndale Rose Gardens! They chose the location because it is super close to their home, which was both fun and a bit nostalgic - they recently purchased a new home in western MN, so we had fun documenting their love story in one of their favorite local spots. The spring blossoms were all in bloom, including the stunning lilacs (which smelled heavenly!). As sunset drew closer, we headed over to Lake Harriet to take in the colorful skies, as the haze from northern wildfires turned the sky vibrant hues of pink and orange as the sun dipped below the horizon. So excited to celebrate their upcoming summer wedding at Crooked Willow in Osakis!

Congrats, lovebirds!

Livja + Katy | Snowy Nighttime Proposal - Minneapolis, MN Proposal Photographer

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!


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!
