Are you a dog-lover? A nature-lover? Do you like to explore all the wonderful little gems that Minnesota has to offer? Have you been considering a Duluth engagement session?

Then you’re going to love this blog as much as we do! We met up with adorable couple Vanessa and Thor, and their double adorable pups Sol and Luna, in Duluth, Minnesota to do some adventuring and take some epic photos.

Have a look!

We were warned that pups Luna and Sol might steal the show, and they wasted no time hamming it up for the camera!

The happy family 🙂

We explored the lovely Lester Park, just north of Duluth. With over 9 miles of trails for biking and hiking, as well as connecting routes to surrounding trail ways and easy access to the city, you can make a Duluth engagement session into a full blown day of adventuring!

Vanessa shared their sweet proposal story with us, and it goes to show that every proposal has a hitch that makes it extra special:

“Kind of cheesy but Thor had the ring inside my mitten [that] I was getting as a Christmas gift. [The] funny part was I almost didn’t try the glove on. But then he got down on one knee and [it] turned out cute!”

Vanessa and Thor were not afraid to get their feet wet!

A lovely dip in front of the rich textures and colors of a mossy rock wall in Lester Park.

We love a good dip, and created a video to teach folks how to execute this killer photography move with style – check it out here!

After exploring the park, we decided to take full advantage of the dramatic landscapes that the nearby Lake Superior shoreline offers.
