I photographed Chelsea and Jason's wedding this past weekend and while it was a wonderful affair it made me realize that I had never shared their engagement photos. So, let's share.
Chelsea and Jason contacted me last Fall, but it wasn't about photographing their wedding, they wanted me to video it. I said that I would be happy to do it. We met a little while later and discussed all the particulars and agreed on everything. I wrote them in my calendar and we were all set. A couple of months later, however, Chelsea contacted me and said that the photographer they had hired, before they ever met me, was having to move to Georgia because her husband was being transferred. She wondered if I would be able to photograph their wedding instead of videoing it. I said that would be fine, but now we had a little problem. I include an engagement session photo shoot with my package but we were now in Winter and I've never done an engagement session in the snow before. We talked about it and decided to give it a shot because they wanted to have the photos so they could make up a sign-in book for their wedding that included their engagement photos.
Jason had some military obligations so we didn't have a lot of times to choose from as to when we could do the session. We also didn't have a lot of options because of the weather. We decided rather hurriedly one day to run off to Chautauqua Institution because everything seemed like it would work time-wise.
We had to trudge through some snow every now and then but in the end I was very happy with the way the photos came out. Never having shot an engagement session in the snow before had me a little worried but I would be more than confident about doing another one any time. Below you can see some shots from the day.
