Kayla & Jacob – Gooseberry Mound Park

Sunny Winter Engagement Session – Moorhead, MN

These two had the perfect sunny winter engagement session. It was just above freezing, which means the air felt warm but the snow wasn’t too slushy!  We met at Gooseberry Mound Park to take advantage of the green pine trees and the bridge connecting the park to Lindenwood. The winter sun in North Dakota provides a soft glow through the trees, reflecting back off of the snow. I may complain about the winters in our area, but they can be really quite beautiful!

We had originally planned this engagement session a week earlier, but when the forecast showed 35 degrees for the following weekend we changed our minds. I am so thankful that Kayla and Jacob were flexible and could switch dates. We went from a windy and cold 18 degree day, to a windy and warm 38 degree day!  Those 20 degrees make all the difference when you are out without a jacket!

Another plus of the warmer weather was that we could take our time and chat between photos. Kayla and Jacob are a really sweet, hardworking couple. They met a few years ago on a night when Ribfest was cancelled due to weather. Jacob ended up where Kayla works and saw her talking to some elderly regulars. He walked up and started a conversation, assuming the customers were her grandparents!  I think that is a pretty good icebreaker even if they weren’t her grandparents!  Obviously it worked, because now Kayla and Jacob are planning their dream wedding.

I can’t wait for their wedding this August! Congrats again you two!
