Every once in a while I’ll have couples brave enough to venture out in colder temps. For the most part I completely understand most people opting out but I will say, when I find those select few who are game to take photos in the colder months, I take advantage of the opportunity. There’s something really magical about photographing anything really in fresh, clean snow. When Jenn and Vance were in a pinch to have engagement photos taken and willing to take them outside, I was excited no doubt. Special thanks to my awesome buddy, Gail, for sending this couple my way when she was away in Germany for work. With this engagement session, I’ve officially kicked off my 2014 season and feeling pretty amazing about what’s to come..
Jenn and Vance are getting married in DC in May. “You mean, DURING CHERRY BLOSSOM SEASON?” I can be a very enthusiastic person and especially when it comes to cherry blossom season. My godmom and her family live out in DC and every year I tell myself I’m going to make a trip out there for work the following year because I hear it’s so amazing and breathtakingly beautiful.
J&V – So great to meet you. Thank you for braving the cold and being the perfect start to my season. Couldn’t have asked for a kinder couple. Grateful for you guys!
All the best,
Hiya! I’m Caitlin and I love me some symmetry. I’m also pretty smitten with the creamy colors this wall from the downtown library is giving off in these photos. YUM.
This man? COMPLETELY SMITTEN WITH JENN. Kept calling her sweetheart every other sentence and y’all know I can only handle so much of that before my squeaking erupts.
That Vance is a keeper. Such a nice guy.
You know the best thing about photographing people when there’s snow all over the ground? Natural reflector for the win! Illuminates a subject’s face beautifully. Snow does, however, cast a bluish tint in photos so for any photographers reading this – after editing these, I went through and took the saturation on my Cyan levels way down. Just had to be careful Vance’s shirt didn’t change color. High fives!
Jenn, go on with your gorgeous self.
I may be alone here but does any other woman out there melt into a pile of mush when a man grabs your face like this? Whoah man, makes my heart skip a beat. 🙂
