Engagement Portraits at Long Lake Regional Park

Engagement Portraits at Long Lake Regional Park

Just days before we left town for our 22nd annual North Shore Weekend, I had the pleasure of creating Eric & Amanda’s engagement portraits at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, MN.

The future Mr. & Mrs.

Actually, we started right at our studio in our Portrait Park and then we headed over to Long Lake Regional Park to finish up.

Eric and Amanda also brought their two cute kids, eight year old Keaton and little 18 month old Sophie, for a few family portraits too. Grandma also came along for the ride, so when the kids were finished up, Keaton and Sophie got to have some fun on the playground while grandma supervised the situation. Eric, Amanda and I continued with the engagement portrait part while they played on this spectacular evening.

We strolled around looking for pretty backgrounds and then moved on to another. The western sky was kind of fun before sunset, so a couple pretty images were created there. Once we had finished, we walked over to the the playground area to see the kids. On the way, there was a large gathering of people having a nice picnic and they toasted the future Mr. & Mrs. with shots of some kind of concoction, they also had a picture taken with Eric and Amanda just for the fun of it!

It was a beautiful Minnesota evening, much better than the multiple rain-outs that had washed us out in the weeks before.

Eric and Amanda will be getting married in just a few weeks at the Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club in October and we’re looking forward to their pretty wedding. Hopefully we’ll get weather just like this for their special day!

For their music highlight video featuring some of their engagement portraits at Long Lake Regional Park, I decided to go with a rustic theme in honor of their wedding venue. Hope you like it! –M&J
