Insert “Walking in a winter wonderland” here 🎵 Kelsey and Chase’s Boom Island Park Winter Engagement Session was nothing short of breathtaking. Despite the blizzard conditions, these two were seriously such troopers on this cold winter day. There’s just something so romantic about a fresh blanket of snow and exploring with the love of your life. Prepare to witness some magic ✨

This sweet couple and I had so much fun venturing around Boom Island Park together. In between romantic shots, we took many breaks to use hand warmers (and to hop in the car to blast the heat). As frigid as a Minnesota winter is, the snow is always such a welcomed gift for a couples looking for that “winter engagement session” vibe. Even though we had hoped to have a view of the cityscape, we were happy with the little peaks we got. We wrapped up their winter session with Kelsey in a stunning emerald green lace dress. My fingers were literally NUMB so I have no idea how she looked so effortlessly beautiful (and not cold!?). Kelsey and Chase were full of so much grace and love for one another… Have I mentioned that I have the best job ever?!

Now that I have finally thawed out from this Boom Island Park Winter Engagement Session and the Rice Creek Winter Engagement Session, bring on SPRING! 😉 Speaking of Spring, be sure to follow me over on Instagram (@morganelizabethphotos) to keep up with me as I begin “busy season”. In the mean time, catch up on my latest blogs HERE. Until next time…

I am such a sucker for a good wedding day love story. Tonja and Alex’s romantic Stillwater, Minnesota wedding day was no exception. They said “I do” on a rainy April day at the JX Venue overlooking the St. Croix river.

The Background

I first met Tonja and Alex when they booked me to take their engagement photos in Stillwater; and I absolutely loved their engagement photos. We had so much fun together capturing their love and vibing together. It was an honor to be asked to photograph their wedding day. Like many couples, they were impacted by the pandemic. But, Tonja and Alex handled every situation that was thrown their way with such grace.

The Details

Their wedding day was stunning. The JX Venue had the prettiest brick details with an industrial, yet modern, feel. Tonja and Alex opted out of having a bridal party, but they were both able to get ready with people near to their hearts. Tonja’s brother officiated their ceremony, which was such a touching addition. The rain cleared after their ceremony and gave way to a beautiful Spring day.

So we took advantage of the weather and captured some beautiful shots outside – including with the couple’s pride and joy, their puppy Benjamin; he was the life of the party. Tonja and Alex walked in holding hands as the new Mr. and Mrs. as an alternative to doing a grand march. In addition to a creative grand march, their personalities truly showed by having Dairy Queen Dilly Bars in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. How sweet is that!? 

Above all, don’t be afraid to break the norms and create your own dream wedding day – no matter what is thrown your way. At the end of the day, what matters most is that you get to marry the love of your life.

With this in mind, is there any tradition you are doing away with for your big day? Drop them below in the comments!

Caroline and Nathan were absolute naturals in front of the camera! This Rice Creek Regional Park Fall engagement session in Shoreview, Minnesota was so much fun! I absolutely love when a couple brings the energy to their session (and an energetic puppy, too). 

Minnesota blessed us with such a perfect Fall day.

We met up in the parking lot and had zero trouble finding locations to shoot. This sweet couple frolicked in the golden, grassy fields and danced within the towering pines for the most picturesque Fall engagement photos.

As if their photos weren’t already flawless enough, they brought their puppy Enzo! If you are wondering if dogs are allowed in your engagement session, heck yes they are. Enzo had so much energy and kept us all laughing (which made those giggly pictures even easier to capture). We wrapped up their session by poppin’ some champagne and toasting to their future!

This beautiful couple ties the knot in October of 2022 and I cannot wait to capture another special moment in their lives. 

Check out some highlights from their Rice Creek Fall engagement session below! If you’re loving this content, be sure to head over to my Instagram so you don’t miss a thing.
