Jon and Erin decided to do two different engagement sessions. One in the winter when it was the coldest day in the year in Minneapolis. The other session was when it was summer and sunshine. Both the engagement sessions were so fun. During the winter engagement session we ran around in the snow, went out on silver lake, and snapped a bunch of photos while trying not to get frostbite. The summer engagement session at Silverwood Park was much warmer and we all got to sit back and enjoy the sunset over Silver Lake.
Silverwood Park is a stunning park that also has a wedding venue where you can get married at Silverwood Park. It’s one of our favorite parks because it has a lot of nature trails and stunning lake views.
Winter engagement photography in Minnesota can be a bit tricky. Winter temperatures often drop to sub-zero and the wind chill can make it feel even colder. To ensure you and your photographer get quality photos, here are some tips: dress appropriately with several layers of clothing including hats, gloves, coats, and boots; bring extra items like blankets or hot water bottles to keep warm between shots; plan your location carefully as open areas will be much colder than locations with trees or other elements that block the wind. Once you’ve got these things taken care of, all that’s left is to enjoy the experience! With a good attitude and fun poses, you’ll have beautiful winter engagement photos that capture the romance between you and your special someone. With these tips, you’ll have no problem keeping warm and getting stunning photos in the Minnesota winter!
