Minneapolis-ST PAUL Couples Session | Hidden Falls Regional Park
If Peter and Samantha were shades of color, they would definitely be on the cooler side, probably periwinkle and sage green. That's because they are so gently and perfectly paired that one seems to spill a bit into the other, making them a great & even match, blended like coffee and sweetened milk. These softer shades all combined in their carefree and fun couples shoot. Traversing the meandering trails of Hidden Falls Regional Park, one of my favorite Minneapolis and St Paul engagement locations, I saw a glimpse of young love and kindred spirits.
One of the unique features of shooting in Hidden Falls Regional park is the diversity of shooting locations. Here you have lovely riverbed spots, dense forestry, open forest areas, creeks, trails and open park space. It's a wonderful place for Minneapolis engagement locations, offering up a varied collection of images.
Shooting with film helps me get stunning highlights, which are particularly gorgeous when shooting towards the sun at sunset. Film handles highlights much better than digital, creating creamy highlights that still have detail to them and aren't blown out.
This shot above of Peter and Samantha standing in the water is one of my favorite shots. It was quite impromptu, with Peter asking if we could finish the shoot in the water. With both subjects agreeing to go into the river, I snapped my last few images there. Their comfort with each other in front of the camera was truly awesome.
