So many of my couples are from out of town and schedule engagement sessions for when they are home visiting family. It’s usually this time of year, which offers opportunities and challenges. The opportunities include getting engagement photos and Christmas photos at the same time. There’s usually lots of colorful lights and the cold really forces couples to stay close and squeeze tight. The challenge, of course, is the cold.
And today, it was COLD!
But that’s OK, because I met Caroline and John at the Arabica in downtown Willoughby. We warmed up with some coffee and took some shots inside. They grabbed the best table in the place for photos, right in front of the Christmas tree. When the Christmas lights came on outside, we bundled up and headed to the square. It was really frigid and the wind was blowing hard, but Caroline and John managed to shrug it off and be totally natural for the camera.
I had a really fun time with Caroline and John and I’m really looking forward to their wedding in May. Here’s a couple shots from Caroline and John’s engagement session.
