Water Power Park Engagement Photos in Minneapolis

Before I talk about Marissa and Jason’s Minneapolis engagement sessions, I need to talk about something important.

Do they make you laugh?

This is literally the first question I ask about any new relationship. From friends to coworkers to partners – the most important thing to know is this – do they make you laugh? ⁠⠀

And I guess, I hope that couples ask that about their photographers. Not in a “does she have a joke ready for all occasions” type of laughter. But in a “do we feel comfortable enough to show the vulnerability of laughter with her?”

Because, honestly, that’s the goal.

Comfort, then intimacy, documented.

So, yeah, my suggested mantra for picking a photographer: think about the photos you want, but also think about how you want to feel on your wedding day.

Marissa and Jason combined totally timeless with a touch of modern for their fall engagement photos in Minneapolis. We hung out around St Anthony Main and Water Power Park (a new favorite view of the Minneapolis skyline for sure!)

Not only is the Mississippi river gorgeous in fall, but its also some of the same locations we planned to hit for their wedding at Minneapolis Event Center, so the engagement photos connect to their wedding photos even more.

Can’t wait to share the images from their stunning fall wedding in Minneapolis!
