Golden Hour Engagement Session in the Woods | Melissa & Seth – Montissippi Park & Henry’s Woods

Minnesota Engagement Session | Montissippi Park, Monticello, MN & Henry's Woods - Rogers, MN

Melissa and Seth wanted a nature theme for their engagement session. We picked Montissippi Park and Henry’s Woods. Both are in the northwest of the Twin Cities metro area and are a couple of my favorite nature locations around the Twin Cities!

Montissippi Park’s most astounding feature is its tall, incredibly straight pines. Melissa and Seth posed among the trees, the trunks creating a beautiful frame. The park is also located on the Mississippi River with a gorgeous dock and stony river bank. 

After the park, we caught the last rays of light at Henry’s Woods in Rogers, Minnesota. The park has a beautiful, old red barn we used as our main background.
