Lake Superior Engagement Photos on the Cliffs of Palisade Head in Northern Minnesota • Adventure Engagement Photographer • Minnesota Elopement Photographer
Briana & Josh are definitely outdoor & travel enthusiasts, who are not afraid of some good ol’ adventuring! Just hearing that Josh proposed to her last winter in literally -40 degree weather during a hike around Interstate Park in Taylors Falls, MN. I knew these two were my kind of strong willed explorers! Being we are all big fans of the rugged & woodsy North Shore in Minnesota, hiking around the cliffs of Palisade Head in Beaver Bay was an obvious choice for their engagement photos! Scenic views of Lake Superior & large rocky cliff sides were the perfect pairing for some truly Northern Minnesota feeling images!
As the sun started to set in the bluffs, we headed down to the Black Sand Beach a few miles down the road. Briana had mentioned she wanted to get in the water for some really romantic images of them cuddling it up in the lake! Let’s just say, the water was nothing less than FREEZING… but let’s remember how badass these two are and apparently super cold tolerant, bonus!!! Some of my favorite images from the entire evening were of them splashing each other and playing in the water with their doggo, Huck (who is the sweetest little girl, EVER, btw!)
So much fun was had wandering around the north woods together!! From the amazing vantage point up along the trail at Palisade head overlooking the lake, all the way down to the sandy beaches and literally playing in the lake!! I am so excited to not only photograph their wedding next year, but to CELEBRATE their love, you guys it’s literally the greatest thing ever!!!!
