Photographed by Ivy Hansen


This shot was completely unplanned as we prompted them in the beginning but soon turned into a more candid moment. The only thing that was “planned” throughout this entire shoot was the picnic setup. We went into this day wanting to create a timeless stylized shoot that focused mainly on the couple’s true personality and that required a lot of getting to know them right on the spot and feeling out their mood.

This shot was half planned and unplanned all at the same time …so it was all what happened in the moment/fate if that is even a thing while shooting?!! ;)

It was me and two other amazing photographers who both had their own way of photographing this particular moment and a lot of the time we stacked on top of each other or were shoulder to shoulder haha! Pretty sure I was leaning up against one of the girls while taking this photo!

Ivy Hansen

Photographer United States of America Canon 5D Mark IV 35mm
I’m Ivy, like the vine and I’m a destination wedding & elopement photographer based out of Minneapolis. I like to spend most of my time photographing my couples along the North Shores of Minnesota, which is where I spent the majority of my childhood camping, hiking, and making some of the greatest memories with my family. Most of my inspiration comes from being surrounded by nature, the lake, and mountains.
