“This session is a gorgeous anniversary session in Minneapolis, MN. The couple wanted to celebrate their one year anniversary with a series of outdoor portraits near the Mississippi River – a stunning shoreline dotted with recreational areas and parks throughout Minnesota.”
Natalie’s Photography Tip:
There were a few components that made this session beautiful and successful.
First, the time of day. We shot around sunset on a semi-hazy day which provided the perfect light filter and quality.
Second, the colors the couple decided to wear, along with their props, fit very well with the neutral tones found in nature at sunset.
Third, the couple was very comfortable in front of the camera and took direction easily without showing discomfort. This provided the shoot with a very natural feel.
Depending on what you’re looking for, following this tip should give you a warm relaxed, and natural set of images.
Natalie used a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 35mm 1.4L lens and a Sigma 85mm 1.4 lens to capture these images.
