I know I have said it before, in fact I am pretty sure I have said it multiple times this year alone, but we get to work with the very best couples. Amazing people who are so lovely! But when the wedding day is over, it can sometimes be a while before we get to see them again.
Our calendars are so full during the year, that we don’t get a ton of free time to hang out with people outside of weddings and other sessions – at least not during the peak seasons. Now, I’m not complaining, because I do love my job very much, but it is always great to catch up with some of the people we photographed on their wedding days and finding the time for that can be difficult. And that’s why I was so excited when Jay reached out to me about an anniversary session for him and his wife Karen!
Sometimes the photography Gods bless me with the most amazing sessions ever! The perfect weather (not too hot, not too cold), a beautiful blue sky with puffy white clouds for interest, pink blooms in the leafy trees, and a gorgeous couple full of laughter. This was definitely one of those sessions!!
So I am thinking Mother Nature might have just skipped Spring this year. First the season was super late with a cold April and May. And now it seems like it has been decided that since Spring was so late, we might as well just start Summer and forget all about it.
Sometimes you have a session where just everything goes so well…this was one of those sessions.
The weather was the perfect blend of cold enough for there to be a light covering of snow on the ground (essential to a proper winter engagement session), but not so cold that we froze to death just walking around the woods, so big thanks to Mother Nature for that! But what made the session truly wonderful was Jessica + Dillon.
Winter took a while but it is definitely here now isn’t it?
I met up with Jessica + Dillon after ice and a touch of snow had hit the city, but before the big blast of snow we received a little earlier this week. It made for some lovely ground cover for their session without adding too much trouble walking through the woods.
