Fun Cabin Engagement Session | MN Engagement Photography

Jackie + Matt’s outdoor engagement photos in Minnesota

Two of my favorite things:

  1. when a couple incorporates some part of their personal lives + relationship into their engagement photos
  2. & when a couple makes a trip out of their engagement session

These cuties did both!

For their engagement session, Jackie & Matt decided to rent a little cabin and spend the weekend at the north shore. Because on a normal weekend, you can often find these two with their pups, going on hikes, camping, or at a cabin together.

So naturally, we started our session at the cabin they rented with a couple of cold brews around a campfire! It honestly felt like a crisp fall day enjoying the fresh air – even though it was really the springtime.

Because this is something Jackie & Matt would naturally do, it made it super fun, easy, and personal to take photos of – it’s nothing they had to fake, or pretend they’d do in real life. Drinking around a campfire with their dogs came naturally, which made for THE best & most special engagement photos!

After we finished up our time at the fire together, we ventured out to a super pretty black sand beach in the area. We ran around with their dogs, Jackie rocked the most gorgeous bright red dress with a simple light brown hat, while Matt kept it simple with a tan shirt & dark pants. Talk about a stylish, naturally good lookin’ couple, am I right?

I’m so happy that these babes turned their engagement session into a mini vacay & a whole experience, rather than just a couple of hours. It makes the whole experience more personal + you’re able to create more memories together, and I just love documenting that for my couples!

So if you haven’t yet considered a mini vacation (or a stay-cation) for your engagement sesh, I highly recommend doing it 😉
