Engaged: Lauren and Jake | Stillwater | Minnesota Wedding Photography

This shoot was done last year, obviously, as we have not had this much greenery yet in 2019. We recently took a day trip to Stillwater, Minnesota and it was so much fun. It’s been a while since we shot engagement photos in Stillwater, so I wanted to post this one.

Lauren and Jake, much like the rest of our clients, were really fun to work with. They were the type of clients that really left the photography up to us, so we went all over Stillwater and did a bunch of different things. Anyone familiar with that town knows that you have the river, the absolutely adorable small town charm, Pioneer Park, and lots of other things to work with. We couldn’t help but take photos with the Snoopy outside of one of the candy stores. We love Peanuts and Snoopy. That was originally just kind of a goofy idea, but it turned out fun, kind of like a blooper. This was another engagement shoot that was VERY bright. As you can see by the shadows on the ice cream shop, there was a lot of sun, which is the photographer’s natural enemy. So we decided to embrace it and use it to the best of our abilities at the time. I personally love the look of division on the ice cream shop photo.

Lauren and Jake will be getting married this summer in Stillwater, so it will be (hopefully) another warm day in Stillwater for the four of us, along with their family and friends!
