Minnesota North Shore Engagement Session, Black Beach & Palisade Head

Joe + Taylor’s Love Story

Prepare yourself for a small glimpse into Taylor and Joe’s engagement session, which was filled with giggles, smiles, and the stunning backdrop of Black Beach and Palisade Head in Silver Bay on the North Shore of Minnesota.

Black Beach Engagement Session

Picture this: the sun slowly drops below the treeline, casting its golden glow on the beach as the waves crash along the rocks. Taylor and Joe started their engagement session journey at Black Beach, where they playfully frolliced hand-in-hand, along the shoreline of Lake Superior, exchanging kisses and loads of laughs. Then, they spun, danced, dipped, and swayed as we documented their love story.

Nestled in the charming town of Silver Bay, MN, just a short 45-minute drive North of Duluth, this hidden gem boasts views of Lake Superior, majestic cliffs, and a rocky shoreline that makes for a perfect engagement session. Here’s the bonus – you can double the magic by incorporating two incredible locations into your session. Because let’s be honest, a variety of backdrops equals photo session perfection!

Palisade Head Engagement Session

As the adventure continued, we then caravaned to Palisade Head – just minutes up the road. No matter how many times I visit, the cliffs overlooking Lake Superior never fail to steal my breath away. Taylor and Joe cozied up for the second half of their photo shenanigans. To spice things up, a cheeky bottle of champagne made its debut to end our time together. Spoiler, a great way to end your session is by spraying a bottle of bubbly to celebrate.

Reminder for You

Finally, for those dreaming of their own North Shore engagement session, take note: Black Beach and Palisade Head in Silver Bay, MN are the ultimate dream locations. And let’s not forget the age-old question of what to wear – neutrals, subtle patterns, and outfits that scream comfort and confidence are the key.

So, future lovebirds, add these locations to your list, and get ready to have fun on the North Shore of MN! 💫
