Sunflower Field Engagement Session | Laura & Kelly

Sunflower Field Minnesota Engagement Photography

Green Barn Garden Center, Isanti, MN | Irvine and John Anderson Park, North Branch, MN

Laura and Kelly wanted an engagement session to match their personalities. What better than sunflowers? We had an amazing August evening for this session, with a fully-bloomed sunflower field.

We went to Green Barn Garden Center in Isanti, Minnesota, for the first part our session. Their annual sunflower field is really cool — they plant the field in sections spaced one week apart for a surefire guarantee for a full month of open blooms! The sunflower varieties differ in height, so we got to take pictures of the couple popping out from the middle of a field and them hiding under the bright petals.

After our time in the sunflower field, we ventured to Irvine and John Anderson park in North Branch, Minnesota. The 404 acre park consists of northern hardwood forests, prairie, wetlands and lakes — a perfect setting to contrast the sunflowers. We love how Laura glammed the location up with an amazing gold sequin skirt!
