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

 Laura Robinson Photography | www.laurarobinsonphoto.com

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!

Ericka + Ryan | Aquarium Proposal at SEA LIFE Minnesota - Bloomington, MN Proposal Photographer

PROPOSAL LOCATION:  SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium - Mall of America - Bloomington, MN

When Ryan first contacted me about photographing his proposal to Ericka, he immediately mentioned the Sea Life aquarium at the Mall of America.  What he didn't mention at the time was that he was planning to drive from Indiana to Minnesota to surprise Ericka and propose!  Since the Super Bowl also happened to be in town, it was a busy weekend in the Twin Cities.  With some extra stealthy assistance from Ericka's sister, Taylor, and the fine staff of the aquarium (who helped me to find the right "fish tunnel"!), Ryan was able to pull off a beautiful proposal.  He got down on one knee under the shimmering light of the water and asked Ericka to be his wife -- and she said YES!  

To add to the magic of the day, there was a heavy snow front that decided to move in on the Twin Cities -- and we took full advantage of the big, beautiful, fluffy flakes.  We headed to the Centennial Lakes Park in Edina and wandered around for a few minutes before deciding that the Minnesota cold was better enjoyed from inside.  With some hot cocoa in hand, Ericka and Ryan thawed out in front of the fire, full of laughs and smiles as the reality set in that they had decided on forever!

Congratulations, lovebirds!!

Ryan + Jen | Winter Sunrise Proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge - Minneapolis, MN Proposal Photographer

Proposal Location:  Stone Arch Bridge - Minneapolis, MN

Ryan proposed to Jen on the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis, in the moments before sunrise on a chilly winter morning.  A coating of fresh snow lined the bridge and added to the magic of the morning, as the bridge lamps hadn't yet turned off for the day. 

The sweeping views of downtown Minneapolis are special to these two, as they used to live in a condo at the other end of the Stone Arch Bridge, on the edge of downtown.  When Ryan came to me with the idea to propose on the bridge at sunrise, I thought it was a fabulous idea -- and surely to be the earliest proposal I'd ever photographed!  We knew we had to time it perfectly to have enough light to take photos and to hopefully still see the signs lit up in the background.

As the happy couple enjoyed a stroll down the empty bridge, they came to a stop and Ryan got down on one knee, holding up a magnificent diamond ring.  She said YES!  After joyous hugs and kisses, they continued on their morning journey, their lives forever changed. 

Congratulations, lovebirds!!

(Fun fact:  Kara + Drew, one of our 2018 wedding couples, were literally at the other end of the bridge hoping to catch the sunrise, and passed by Ryan + Jen moments after the proposal!  Such a small world!)
