Michelle & Rodrigo | Ski Mount Southington Engagement

February 4, 2023

Winter has the best light hands down. There aren't many couples that want the snow and cold but Michelle and Rodrigo were very ready! I also encourage my couples to go somewhere fun for their engagement shoot - somewhere special or like these two, an activity they enjoy! There just so happened to be a polar vortex with crazy negative degree numbers but we had a great backdrop in Ski Mount Southington.

I waited in the cozy lodge and noticed how busy the whole place was. I am not a ski/snowboard person and for some reason thought it wouldn't be packed but I was wrong. We did manage to bypass all the people and some sort of slope race and got lots of variety. Totally enjoyed a little snowball fight towards the end of our time together.

Pretty excited for much different weather this fall when they say I do at Wickham Park!

All smiles,
