This Red Wing engagement session is famous on Pinterest, with over 100K pins. It’s also featured in online posing guides and dozens of other wedding & engagement focused websites.

I’ll share the different Red Wing, MN locations we used to capture these engagement photos, as well as some fun background information about my super cool clients.


Engagement Session Locations in Red Wing

Red Wing, MN sits on the Mississippi River about an hour southeast of Minneapolis & St. Paul. Red Wing has some beautiful hilly areas, bluffs, and large wooded areas. Downtown Red Wing has a small town feel with some really great parks down by the river. Below is a list of the locations we utilized during our time together.

  1. Memorial Park
  2. Sorins Bluff
  3. Josephson’s Clothing Store
  4. Levee Park
  5. St. James Hotel


My Awesome Newly Engaged Couple

Katie & Patrick spent a good chunk of their lives growing up in beautiful Red Wing, MN. It was only fitting (and fun) to take it back to their roots for their eSesh. Patrick’s family has owned Josephson’s Clothing store in Red Wing for decades. We started our shoot there as it’s a really neat store with lots of character. Katie & Patrick were a ton of fun, and I am very excited, and honored, to be shooting their big day next year.

Funny side note: I was famished after our session and looking for a good place to eat. I stumbled upon “Fiesta Mexicana” to grab a quick bite before driving back to the cities. Low and behold Katie & Patrick, along with their parents, come walking through the door shortly after me. They invited me over to eat and informed me that this was their absolute favorite restaurant in Red Wing, and after our fun/funny dinner together I could see why.
