I have done many sessions at Lindenwood Park. The park is so expansive that there is always something new to find! Lindenwood Park is perfect any time of the day or year because of all the amazing trees throughout the park. If you are thinking about a fall engagement session in Fargo, Lindenwood Park is one of the best options! Lindenwood Park also has campsites that are perfect to rent for a cozy campfire engagement session!
Wildflower Grove Park is a fun hidden park in North Fargo. It’s just outside of Downtown Fargo near Oak Grove Park. Because the park is on the flood plain and surrounded by the raised flood levee, you would never know it’s near downtown! The park is filled with trees, tall bushes, and flowers with plenty of walkways through it all. It’s a fun space to explore and perfect for an engagement session!
These locations are some of the best places to take engagement photos in Fargo! The best thing about these options is the ability to drive between them. For an engagement session, you can combine any of these locations for a unique session! Maybe you want a formal outfit for Downtown Fargo and a casual outfit for Lindenwood Park. You could choose Green and Yellow for NDSU, but something more neutral for Lion’s Park Conservatory!
If you have already found the perfect outdoor wedding venue, don’t rule it out for engagement photos! A Friend’s House, Oxbow Country Club, and other local outdoor venues allow the couples to use the grounds for their engagement sessions as well. If you love the location, ask your venue contact about access for engagement photos.
Another thing I love about Fargo is the variety of areas that surround the city! With a short 1-2 hour drive, the options greatly expand!
These are just a few of my favorites. There are so many options if you are willing to go outside of Fargo. I love Buffalo River State Park, Detroit Lakes, and Sheyenne National Grassland. Whether you are looking for tall grass and trees, water and sunshine, or prairie grass and blue sky, the options just outside Fargo, North Dakota, are endless!
I am always ready to explore new places. But it is important to also remember all the best places to take engagement photos in Fargo!
Last tip: Keep note of locations you loved during your engagement session. They can easily be used for wedding photos as well!
