Tarin contacted me about taking her engagement pictures, but wasn’t sure where to do them, so I was excited to work with her to find the perfect location. We were brain storming locations around the Twin Cities and Tarin it was at that time she shared with me they would be getting married in Iceland!!! How exciting! They just wanted a small, intimate wedding, and they had never been there but wants to go… So yes, Iceland!!!! A photographers dream. That landscape and lighting, who could ask for anything more?! That got me thinking, what about the beautiful Taylors Falls, MN?
Taylors Falls is a small town on the very mid eastern edge of the state bordering Wisconsin. It’s a quaint little town with lots of little shops and an amazing little mom and pop ice cream parlor (check it out next time your in the neighborhood http://www.schoonys.com/ ). Taylors Falls main attraction is Interstate State Park on the St. Croix River. This park is unique due to the “pot holes” created hundreds of years ago from the glaciers. If you have never been, I would suggest taking a trip out and spending the day exploring the bluffs and along the river just to see these amazing holes. This location I think tied right into a MN version of Iceland… Well… that may be a stretch but I think it really fits their wedding style.
Plus, who doesn’t love puppies in ties!
Congrats you two! I can’t wait to see pictures of your gorgeous wedding!
