Winter definitely came early this year, but fortunately for me, Tara + Dion were actually looking forward to a session with a light dusting of snow … although we did end up with a fair bit more than a dusting.
For us, the day we chose to get married was actually based on availability of a few of our preferred vendors and not for the date itself. And even though I joke that it was chosen because it is 6-months from my birthday (and I therefore get a present every 6-months), it truly was just a day in September that fit our criteria. That being said, it is now a very special date for us and the fact that we now share it with two people as truly wonderful as Leandra + Lucas is pretty darn awesome!
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!
So as all of your friends and family have probably notified you through social media, it’s snowing again – and not just a little either. Despite the fact that the snow was almost gone from most yards and the temperature was quite delightful outside recently, the chilly wind and snow are back.
But I’m not complaining because the fresh snow made for an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for Patricia + Mike’s winter engagement session, which was made all the better by the fact that these two were an absolute delight to spend an afternoon with!
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!
