Hidden Falls Love Story {James + Christine}

Valentine's Day digital valentine by Natalie Champa Jennings Photography from a Love Story session at Hidden Falls Park, St. Paul, MInnesota


A little Love Story session for Valentine’s Day.

Hidden Falls Park is just as magical as its name implies. There are bridges and snowy bluffs towering over little Mississippi offshoot streams. An old stone stairway leads visitors to the sandy river banks of one of the world’s mightiest rivers, the Mississippi.

Christine & James are going to be married this summer, so in great contrast to warm sunny weather we ventured out as winter greeted Minnesota.

Actually, late fall is my favorite time to shoot. There’s something so beautiful about the earthy colors. Portraits are dreamy. This session was one of my absolute favorites. Enjoy.
