We are fortunate enough to work with couples we really love and who share a similar outlook when it comes to their wedding days. They trust us to be able to capture that for them and it really does mean the world to us. And sometimes we find couples (or rather they find us) that we really, really click with. Couples who have that down-to-earth, genuinely kind nature we are drawn to. The nicest thing about all of this, is that we end up having so much fun each and every time we get to hang out with them. Patricia + Mike are, without question, one of these couples!
My brother played a lot of sports and since our town wasn’t big enough for multiple teams, he was pretty much always on teams with his friends. This meant that I spent summers at the baseball diamond and winters at the hockey rink. Luckily, a bunch of his friends had younger siblings for me to hang out with during the games and during out-of-town tournaments we often would watch the younger kids in the hotels.
So I have come to the realization that I talk about the weather a lot on my blog. Perhaps that is because my business often has me making small talk for the first bit of my sessions, or because it is the easiest thing to chat about when you are meeting someone for the first time and those facts mean the topic naturally makes its way onto my blog. Or perhaps it is because I get pretty lucky with weather most of the time (*knock on wood*).
It was cold and my pants were a solid block of ice by the end of their session, but Lisa + Bryson‘s engagement shoot was so much fun. I am far from the most graceful of person, so there were quite a few dips into the snow and I think I may have dropped a lens cap once or twice, but we got some absolutely amazing photos!! I absolutely adore this couple and I can’t wait until September when they step in front of my camera again, but this time it will be warmer and they will be married!
Like I mentioned in Lisa+ Bryson’s sneak peek, I love the country. I truly love almost everything about the country and perhaps some day I will move away from the city and back to the serenity of the country. I also mentioned in their sneak peek, that I was so thrilled when Lisa + Bryson wanted to do their engagement session on Bryson’s family farm. Despite the bone-chilling wind, the weather was near perfect for a winter engagement session and the sky was unbelievably blue!! There were a couple dips into the snow but we had a great time. The weather, the setting and this amazing couple made for some fantastic images!
