Ah, a Stone Arch Bridge engagement – a fixture of the Minneapolis landscape and one of the most popular adventure spots in the city. Located just on the edge of the city branching the Mississippi River, this pedestrian thoroughfare connects two shores teaming with Twin Cities culture and offers unparalleled views of downtown Minneapolis.
For these reasons and more, a Stone Arch Bridge engagement is pretty popular with couples and even for bridals and wedding portraits! As a photographer, this popularity presents a special opportunity to really exercise our creativity in consistently creating new, unique, and timeless shots. It’s a challenge of the best sort, and we at Penny Photographics love to rise to the occasion!
For this epic Stone Arch Bridge engagement, we captured the motion and energy of the city against the mighty Mississippi and its sun-dappled shores, the fun and flirty personalities of Katelyn and Austin, and the antics of their adorable pup Opie! It has just about everything you could want from a lovely and romantic evening in Minneapolis, and we’re super excited to share these shots with you!
One of our favorite shots of the day – Katelyn and Austin set against the backdrop of a city in motion!

A Stone Arch Bridge engagement isn’t complete without a combination shot – river, sky, and romance beneath the arches!
Then we got to play with Opie in the park! Beware: this pooch will steal your heart!
