Emily and Chris’s Lift Bridge engagement combined all of our favorite things! Adorable couple? Check! Cute pup? Check! Beautiful scenery? Check check! Coffee?! You betcha 🙂 For this perfect summer day, we went adventuring with Emily and Chris all around the lovely Duluth, Minnesota to capture their contagiously cheerful personalities and showcase their love story in superior fashion!

Whether you’re a North Shore local or a visitor from the Cities, Duluth offers some of the best of Minnesota. The city itself is full of turn-of-the-century charm, including the Aerial Lift Bridge, with tons of local restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, and distilleries – all on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior. Plus, if you’re looking for a more natural setting, there are tons of gorgeous local and state parks littering the dramatic shoreline of the lake waiting to be explored.

But don’t just take our word for it – check out Emily and Chris’s Lift Bridge engagement below 🙂

We started the day playing with Emily and Chris’s pup Sydney, a three year old rescue who was as sweet as her humans!

We love getting to work with our clients’ furry friends! If you have some of your own you’d like to include in engagement photos, check out our tips on sessions with dogs 🙂


After furry family photos, we headed out to a local park to get into nature and enjoy the beauty of upper Minnesota.


Emily and Chris were two of the sweetest, most cheerful lovebirds – they giggled the whole time!

We decided to coffee up at Amity Coffee in Duluth before taking on the city!

We walked the docks and got some great shots on the namesake of their Lift Bridge engagement!

We took some time to capture this adorable couple against the dramatic shore and skyline of Lake Superior!

After a day full of adventuring, we wrapped up Emily and Chris’s Lift Bridge engagement with a walk on the beach and captured a few more laughs from this cheerful duo. We hope you enjoyed their day in Duluth!
