The knee’s been dropped, the question’s been popped, and the answer is an ecstatic “yes!” Now it’s time to capture the love with the perfect engagement pictures.

Just like your love story, you want your engagement photos to be magnificent and magical while also showcasing your unique personalities. What better backdrop than a colorful, elegant Minnesota autumn?

Congrats! You picked the perfect time of year to get engaged, and here are the best spots in Minnesota to take your photos:

Fall Foliage

Centennial Lakes is the ultimate spot for outdoor fall engagement photos. This area offers 24 acres of walking paths, trees, open grassy areas, and a beautiful big lake. Your photos will be whimsical and romantic, capturing exactly how you feel about each other.

If you’re looking for wilderness views that take your breath away, look no further than Chippewa National Forest. Located on The Edge of the Wilderness Scenic Byway, the forest offers stunning views of spectacular fall foliage and glistening blue lakes.

Stone Arch

Urban Industrial

Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis offers breathtaking views of the city with hints of historic charm. Since the bridge is used for foot and bike traffic, you may have to share the space. No worries, people are usually Minnesota nice and very respectful of your important day.

Harriet Island in St. Paul is where industrial meets nature for the perfect backdrop to your engagement photos. Showcase the cool bridges and buildings or spend time down by the water and changing trees. Better yet? Do both!

Minnehaha Falls

Falls in Fall

Hidden Falls Regional Park is a hidden gem just waiting for you to soak up its beauty. The walk to the falls might be a bit long, but what you find when you arrive makes it well worth it!

Minnehaha Falls is spectacular in the daytime and even better at sunset. Your photos aren’t limited to the falls; the park is divided into two parts – a northern manicured city park and a southern more natural park. Take your pick or enjoy them both!

Indoor Locations

The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis is warm, theatrical, and full of character, making it the perfect spot to snap some pics. Huge windows offer beams of natural light and astonishing views of the city.

The Mill City Museum has great indoor and outdoor areas brimming with rustic elegance. Take advantage of the beautiful brick and stone walls or head outside to the lush green gardens.
