Engagement Photos in the Winter: Makayla and Drew | St. Paul | Winter | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

Engagement photos in the winter can be really incredible.  This was the first engagement shoot of the year where it was actually snowing when we were shooting. That’s the thing with winter photos. If the snow is falling, it looks like magic, but it can be COLD. If it’s not snowing, it can look really bad at times, so you just have to play with what you have. This was the weekend before the polar vortex, so apparently we had no idea what cold was at that point, but we all still agreed to do some photos indoors. We decided to brave it out and go outside and it was certainly worth it.  When you do engagement photos in the winter, you just kind of wing it sometimes.

Makayla and Drew were so much fun to work with. When we booked their wedding, we only met Makayla because Drew had been working in Alaska. It was great getting to meet him as well and see the two of them play off of each other. They had a lot of fun in front of the camera and based off this shoot, we know their wedding day (in a much warmer month) is going to be a lot of fun.

The two of them have known one another since they were young children.  We love stories like that.  They have been together for so long already.  It’s so cool because they have already spent so many points of their lives together.  Now they are beginning another new chapter in those lives.

Update: it has been five years since their wedding, as I’m looking at these photos again.  The day was really warm, in contrast to their engagement session.  It was a wonderful day and we loved working with them and their families.
