Kristi & Josh’s engagement photos in St. Peter Mn.

Engagement photos in St. Peter Mn are all kinds of fun!  I enjoyed getting to know Kristi and Josh.  We walked around the downtown area and stopped by a little park.  After this we headed out to a scenic spot near St. Peter where we had a little adventure walking along the river and going into the woods.

What’s the best time to take engagement photos in St. Peter Mn?

Near sunset is always a great time for engagement pictures in St. Peter Mn.  The streets are less crowded and the brick buildings look amazing in the late afternoon light.  There are dozens of great spots where you can get creative and unique engagement pictures in the historic downtown.

Should you bring your dog to your engagement photos?

Yes!  Because the love of your pet is something the two of you share so why not have them celebrate your engagement with you.  Kristi and Josh brought their sweet puppy Jase and he had fun running along the riverbed with us. 

Here are some tip for bringing your dog to engagement photos in St. Peter Mn or anywhere else. Always bring along a leash, and an extra person to watch your dog. 

Consider asking a parent or friend to attend your engagement sessions as your dog sitter. This is because dogs often have short attention spans for pictures. After your dog is done being photographed you can enjoy your session without worrying about who’s watching them. 

Can we go on an adventure for your St. Peter Mn engagement photos?

Adventure engagement sessions are extremely popular right now.  And you don’t need to leave the St. Peter area to have your own adventure.  I know a few scenic spots for engagement photos near St. Peter where we can hike and take in all the natural beauty of the river valley area. 

For this adventure engagement session we visited a small river in the woods near St. Peter.  The riverbed has a gorgeous shore of rocky glacial till and reminds me of the beaches in Northern Minnesota. The river is surrounded by mature trees and prairie grasses.  At sun set when the clouds move in the landscape gives you all kinds of romantic mood for your engagement photos.
