Fall Engagement Session | Hansen Tree Farm | Anoka, MN | Luxury Wedding Photographer

Cozying up at a Christmas-tree farm is a tailor-made location for lovers who want dreamy engagement photos; I mean it screams romance, and of course an inevitable snuggle-fest!

As I pulled up to the Hansen Tree Farm in Anoka, MN, I immediately noticed the smell of pine needles and burning firewood. MMMMmmmmm! I mean come on, does it get any cuter or cozier than rows and rows of Christmas trees?! I think not!

And not only were there bundles and bundles of cute Christmas trees, but Samantha & James also planned on bringing their sweet dog, Owen, to their engagement session for a few snaps together too. So naturally, the stars aligned for a fabulously cute & snuggly engagement session.

As we strolled along the pathways riddled with pine needles and pine cones, Owen chomped on every large stick he could find. Each stick increasing in size as he adventured along the path. It was too cute! And just look at how adorable he is with his parents – what a pup!

A happy, adventurous Owen left soon after we grabbed a few quick snaps of him, and we then moved on to other locations on the farm. From the tall pines, the cozy, wood piles, and all of the laughter, there was certainly no lack of fun to be had!

Samantha & James have been dating each other since they were sixteen years old. And after witnessing all the smiles and kisses during their engagement session, it seemed like they had only just started to date one another – seriously though, SO much fun to photograph them, and SO much fun being a part of their love story!

So, if you are wondering if you should choose a Christmas-tree farm for your engagement session, my answer would be an overwhelming, YES! 

Congratulations on your engagement Samantha & James! 

I cannot wait to capture your wedding next year!
