I always warn my couples -- snowy winter engagement sessions LOOK way more fun than they REALLY ARE.
The snow falls gently around you as you nuzzle noses and embrace your love. You're also freezing your ass off and pretending to not care that your feet are wet and that you can no longer feel your fingers. You kiss each other lightly and eventually eat the snot of your fiancé as it drips down their numb face. Epic photographs? Yes. Genuine romantic moments? A few. Lots of rushing around to nail shots while your blood is still pumping? Yeah. A lot of that.
These two were total champs though and powered right through the cold. We drove out to the meadows in Green Lakes State Park and had perfectly peaceful scenery surrounding us -- resulting in a little bit longer of a shoot than anticipated! There was hot chocolate, piggy back rides, and snowball fights intermixed with lots of playtime with my prism! I literally cannot wait to shoot their winter wedding next January!!
