Summer Evening Engagement Photos: Lea and Robert | Black River Falls | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Summer evening engagement photos have a certain magic to them.  There is that glow, that lovely weather, all of it.  So when we decided to do summer evening engagement photos in Black River Falls, we were really excited.

This was a long drive of an engagement session on both ends, as we are shooting Lea and Robert’s wedding in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this year. We were going to be shooting a wedding in Two Harbors, so we always stay at my parents’ house in Hayward, Wisconsin when we shoot up there. So we planned on doing the engagement session that Friday. We found Black River Falls in the middle of Hayward and Milwaukee, but we all had to drive close to three hours just to get there. And when we got there, we found out we couldn’t access the falls due to construction.

Much like with wedding days, we have to go with the flow, and drove around to find some spots. Luckily, there were some nice areas for shooting close to us and we didn’t run out of light. Overall, it was a crazy situation, but we ended up having a lot of fun and got some great shots.  In the end, we found water, trees, and paths to shoot with.  You can’t get much better than that when looking for nature photos in the summertime. The area was beautiful and we are happy to have found it for them.

Update: we are now looking at these photos five years later. Lea and Robert’s wedding day in Port Washington was so much fun.  Their dance floor was memorable and they were great to work with.  It was also memorable for us in that the ride home was crazy.  We ended up in the area of Wisconsin where you could easily run out of gas because the exits were so far apart.  Lesson learned.
