Casual Outdoor Engagement Shoot in Minnesota

Bror and Mackenzie’s outdoor engagement shoot was a blast! We headed out to Crosby, Minnesota, a spot known for its superior beauty, which suited them perfectly. A natural location choice for them, the tall trees, the lake—it was all just right. They wanted their shoot to feel authentic and timeless, and this provided the ideal backdrop for that vibe. Mackenzie shared she had seen how I work at weddings and loves how I get along with everyone. They also really dig my editing style, and how it makes the couple and their photos pop in a super inviting way.

Mackenzie and Bror’s love story is a testament to the idea that timing is everything. Though they’ve known each other for over a decade, it’s only been 2.5 years since they leaped from friends to partners. Their journey began at Rafferty’s Pizza, where they both worked and discovered a shared passion for skiing. Their bond grew stronger, fueled by their adventurous spirits and zest for life. They didn’t see the need to wait to tie the knot. A Fall wedding was their dream, and they were eager to make it a reality. I can’t wait for their fall 2024 wedding at Madden’s Resort in Minnesota. For their outdoor engagement shoot, they aimed for a timeless aesthetic, reflecting the joy they find in each other’s company.

Bror and Mackenzie’s outfit choices for their engagement shoot were a perfect blend of style and comfort. Mackenzie opted for a white sundress and then switched to a more casual look with white pants and a stylish blouse, striking the ideal balance between laid-back and chic. Their outfit choices not only complemented each other but also added to the overall aesthetic of the shoot, leaving some focus on the natural beauty of the location. During the shoot, Bror and Mackenzie engaged in various activities like walking hand in hand, sitting on the dock by the lake, and even venturing into the water for a few shots, just laughing and enjoying each other’s company for a candid flow.
