Nine Minneapolis engagement session ideas

In my last blog post about why you'll regret skipping an engagement session, I talked about the couples I work with have found engagement sessions to be so lovely, magical, and even super useful! Engagement sessions are a lovely, personal way to capture a 'day in the life' of your relationship. When I'm meeting with couples to plan Minneapolis engagement sessions ideas, we talk about the story of their relationship and what they want to do with their engagement pictures (we plan out beautiful art like custom save the dates, a wall gallery for their home, an engagement album, prints at their wedding reception, etc.). Here are nine of my favorite Twin Cities engagement session ideas!

1. At the place he or she proposed

What better way to capture an engagement than to go back to the place it all started!

2. At your local farmers market

Let’s capture romantic candids as you spend a relaxed morning wandering through your local market and setting up a parkside picnic, complete with fresh market flowers and cozy blankets.

3. Where you first met each other

Whether your first meeting was a discussion at the library or fumbling for the door at your local coffee shop, going back to your beginnings is a sweet and unique memory.

4. A sunset skyline

One of my favorite Minneapolis engagement session ideas because we have such a beautiful city skyline: celebrate the place you fell in love with images that capture iconic views of your city.

5. An amusement park

A quirky, adventuresome outing, bursting with joyous energy, cotton candy, and twinkling ferris-wheel lights.

6. A romantic beach

In the morning or evening, the combination of water and sky creates a background with a sense of the infinite

7. In a state park

Capture your epic relationship or your love of hiking with images that capture an afternoon adventure in trees and forests.

8. At your favorite coffee shop

Warm and cozy, neighborhood coffee shops feel intimate and romantic, and can also capture your favorite hangout

9. In a sun-drenched field

We’ll adventure through a sunny summer evening, seeking out wildflowers, tall swaying grasses, and wide-open spaces to infuse natural beauty into your images.
