Hennepin Island | Spring Engagement

Hearing Rachel and Seth’s story while chatting with Rachel over the phone for the first time was so much fun!  She met Seth through a mutual friend and a few years later Seth popped the big question, to which of course Rachel said yes!  They love traveling, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on Michigan State, Seth’s Alma mater.

Rachel and Seth love Minneapolis and we were so excited to see a bright and sunny break in this rainy spring for their engagement session!  We set off to explore Minneapolis, St. Anthony Main, and Hennepin Island together and the light could not have been more perfect!  This area is one of our favorites for engagement sessions because of the variety in backdrops!  With Minneapolis’ iconic skyline and the texture and variety of brick backdrops, it is ideal for photos with a bright city vibe!  We loved the way Rachel’s white dress and Seth’s green shirt worked perfectly with the colors of the city!  The light, fresh, and clean look was absolutely stunning!

One of the best parts of this area is that only steps away from the city skyline we are whisked away into a romantic natural setting perfect for golden hour light streaming through the trees.  We even found a bed of tulips that gave a perfect backdrop with a nod to spring!  Exploring the paths of Hennepin Island also gave us waterfront areas to explore and photographing these two as they laughed and danced the evening away was nothing short of a dream!  We finished off the evening with photos in their Michigan State attire and had a blast chatting about their wedding to come.  We can’t wait to celebrate with them at their wedding this fall at one of our favorite venues – the Hutton House!
