Winter Engagement Session at Montissippi Park | Mikayla & Ben

Twin Cities Winter Engagement Photography

You’re not truly a Minnesota photographer until you’ve taken photos in the snow. Winter is a way of life here, and Mikayla and Ben embraced the fresh snowfall, gray skies, and crisp air for their engagement session. 

We took to Montissippi Park, in Monticello, MN for their engagement session. They were troopers and even shed their coats for the occassion. 

One of my favorite places in Montissippi Park is a stretch of pencil-straight pines neatly laid out, creating symmetrical pathways. It creates an amazing natural frame for portrait sessions — especially after a fresh snowfall!

Congrats, Mikayla and Ben!
