A Minnesota wedding: this wedding day was the best with Mike and Kelsey! Besides these two being the sweetest couple, their love is so real too. These two were so fun to spend their day with. We took photos at the Taylor Falls Interstate State Park and they got married at the Terra Nue Farm, both in Shafer, Minnesota. This wedding day left me feeling so inspired! We had the most amazing light throughout the day and ended with the dreamiest golden hour. Clearly, this all made it a favorite wedding day of mine.
Some of my favorite parts of Mike and Kelsey’s wedding day:
Mike and Kelsey got married in Shafer in September and I was so honored to capture it all. Check out their wedding day for a simple wedding, beautiful Minnesota summer colors, and my favorite photos from this Minnesota wedding!
Back to the photos … Here’s Mike and Kelsey’s Minnesota wedding day!
Typically this answer comes down to two things: the photographer’s editing style and personality. Think about what style of photo you’re naturally drawn to. All photographers do a mix of everything from portraits, formals, and candids, but their own editing style is what sets these photographs apart.
The personality of your photographer is important! Especially for your wedding day. Did you know you spend more time with your photographer than your significant other on your wedding day? I mean it barely checks out, but while you’re on the sidelines waiting for your turn your photographer is taking photos of your groom/bride with the people standing for them, their families, etc. You want to enjoy your photographer’s company so it’s important to know that your personalities mesh well!
Read about me and see if we’d get along! I always try to schedule a call via zoom for discussing packages so we can get to know each other outside of the inbox.
How much does a Minnesota wedding photographer cost? Most photographers build packages for your wedding day. We all value different things leading up to the wedding day, which helps get the personal and meaningful images at the wedding. If you’re looking for a photographer for wedding photos, I can only speak for myself, my packages start at $2,600. You can read more about the details for pricing/packages here.
Some of the most beautiful Minnesota wedding venues include:
Choose a venue that portrays you as a couple. A place that is special to you as a couple, a venue in your hometown, a city that held many date nights, or a venue on a lake you spent summer days at. This will add sentimental value to your photos. When you look back at them you’ll be reminded of the memories you made together.
I also love when my couples lean on me for inspiration. I have many venues that I’m dying to shoot at but just waiting for a couple to try them with.
Mike and Kelsey got married at the Terra Nue Farm and held their reception there as well. We drove to Taylor Falls for their first look and bride and groom photos, I couldn’t believe I was in Minnesota while we were photographing here!! It was a beautiful day.
Depending on your preference, this can vary. Minnesota has all four seasons, which gives variety and is amazing! There are perks to different times of the year as well.
If you can be more flexible, I’d suggest getting your photos done in the spring or fall. This is because of the extreme temperatures that winter and summer can bring plus you get pretty, colorful foliage in both seasons.
Mike and Kelsey got married at the beginning of September, which is a beautiful time of year in Minnesota. The strong heat has died down and you get the beautiful green colors before fall comes along.
