Whatever the season, sports-loving couples can always find a Minneapolis team to support. Why not take along your photographer on game day for some truly unique Minneapolis engagement photography? If you’re interested in hockey, the NHL’s Minnesota Wilds play at the Xcel Center in downtown St. Paul. If it’s basketball season, go see a rousing Minnesota Timberwolves game at Target Center. For baseball season, you and your fiancé can head out to Target Field and root on the Minnesota Twins.
Start your Minneapolis engagement photography session out the same way that you start any game day, with a little bit of tailgating. Swill a couple of brews with some of your closest friends and your engagement photographer will snap some great candid shots of you in your element. Next, head inside for the real action. Buy up the cheesy foam fingers and, if you’re a die-hard fan, break out the face paint. Your photographer can get some pictures of you kissing (foam fingers and all) or cheering for your team’s first points. You and your honey’s exuberance will show up in your engagement pictures, so you will always be able to look back on the joy that you bring each other.
Check ahead of time to see if your team’s arena allows audience members to purchase messages for the scoreboard. If you can swing it, try having your names and wedding date displayed. Your photographer can snap some images of the two of you kissing or smiling in front of the date, which allows you to use a picture from your Minneapolis engagement photography session as your Save the Date card! End your photo shoot with a hearty snack from concessions. Share a dog or some nachos, and don’t be afraid to laugh and get messy. Love is always messy.
Brave the tourists and have your Minneapolis engagement photography session at one of the city’s icons: the Mall of America. Yes, it’s a mall, but it’s also so much more. The shops are only part of the allure, as this mall is also home to an indoor amusement park, a LEGO wonderland, and an underwater paradise.
Start by walking with your sweetheart through the corridors as your photographer captures some unexpected moments. Stand absolutely still as the crowd moves by—your photographer can leave the shutter open so that you and your beau appear crisp and clear while the people around you become blurs of color.
Next, embrace your inner children and explore Nickelodeon Universe (the indoor amusement park) together. Take on the thrill rides, like the Avatar Airbender or the Fairly Odd Coaster, relax on the Carousel, or take aim at each other for some vintage fun on the Naked Brothers Crazy Cars. The theme may be kid-oriented, but you and your honey can still have a blast. As you ride around, ruddy-cheeked and full of excitement, your Minneapolis engagement photographer will be capturing your breathless moments and sneaky kisses. General admission to the park is free, so you can always pose for some great shots in this visually dynamic, multicolored setting without stepping on any rides. Rides, however, require tickets which you can purchase at the various ticket kiosks.
After your theme park adventure, walk to Underwater Adventures, the mall’s very own aquarium. For $18.99 per person, you and your fiancé can explore the wilds of the ocean—stopping for photo ops near your favorite sea creatures. Visit the sharks, turtles, and seahorses to add some aquatic flair to your Minneapolis engagement photography session. Be sure to include the diverse collection of jellyfish as well, as the colorful backlit tanks and gracefully dancing jellies can make for some gorgeous pictures.
Finally, finish out your Minneapolis engagement photography session by posing with astronauts, pirates, and dinosaurs. The LEGO Imagination Center is four stories of intricate LEGO creations that will have you in awe. The bright, primary colors will look great as a backdrop for your engagement photos, and you can have the added fun of incorporating some funny moments with inanimate animals and LEGO people. Run around and visit each display, or sit and play for a bit while your photographer snaps the last few shots for your album. Your day, though exhausting, will certainly leave you with both fabulous photos and lasting memories.
Perhaps one of the city’s favorite attractions, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, makes a delightful setting for Minneapolis engagement photography sessions. The free garden is home to iconic sculptures—like the Spoonbridge and Cherry, a large-scale white spoon with a cherry on top—that are near and dear to most Minnesotans. Wander through the green spots with your fiancé while your engagement photographer captures some intimate moments, then pose near some interesting art pieces. An arbor, shrouded in vines and blossoms, can be the dreamy backdrop for some stunning photos, or head into the Cowles Conservatory for some lush greenery and shiny glass backgrounds. You can spend the entire photo shoot discovering new places to explore and new poses that involve the garden’s unique pieces. When you wrap up your shoot, your photos will not only be one-of-a-kind, they will be works of art.
