Every winter I secretly pray for snow. It’s so beautiful and it’s so fun to take photos when the fluffy white stuff is covering every inch of the ground. Our first snow came in November, which was odd, but I took that as a sign that we would get a LOT of snow this winter. As luck would have it, we started getting weather reports for the fluffy white stuff and it just so happened to be planned for a weekend I had scheduled for Hannah and Christopher’s engagement session. I immediately contacted Hannah and asked her if she still wanted to go ahead with the session or if she and Christopher wanted to wait for a better day. She told me that they would love to work in the snow and how pretty it’d be, so they were definitely still up for the session. I might have squealed like a little girl in excitement when I read her reply. I have taken a lot of sessions in the snow, but I can’t remember ever taking engagement photos in the snow.
We started the session at Christopher’s family farm. He brought out the tractor for some photos as well as bringing me some corn for taking ring shots. I’ve taken pictures at this farm numerous times. In fact, I took Christopher’s sister’s wedding photos there. I love that I’ll be going back this summer when Hannah and Christopher get married. We also made our way to (I think) Christopher’s grandparent’s home. Besides there being another amazing barn, there were also some old cars that have been sitting around for years. They were perfectly rusty and you all know how much I love finding textures for photos. I honestly can’t believe that Hannah wore a dress for some of the engagement photos. She sure was brave and she got to show off her cowboy boots, which I loved. Some of my absolute favs are the ones of her in the dress and jacket! She kept saying she was fine but I know she had to be cold. I could barely feel my fingers!
The next time you see these two, we’ll all probably be super hot and sweaty with all the heat and humidity July has to offer. For now, enjoy looking through some of my favorites from my time with Hannah and Christopher.
