This is the warmest Minnesota winter I can ever remember, and may go down in the record books. I haven’t even put gas in my snow blower yet, and it’s the middle of February! So naturally I picked the one of the only days this winter where it was actually so cold that it hurt! High of 14, windchill closer to zero or maybe below, and I scheduled three outdoor shoots! This is the first of those three shoots.
Sam and Mark are recently engaged and will be married in a few short months. They were troopers to brave it in the bitter cold, and it was funny to watch Sam hide every inch of exposed skin in between pictures to stay warm. I wish I could have gotten to know them better but we were in such a hurry to get out of the cold. I think we made the best of it, capturing these photos that I hope they can enjoy for a lifetime. Congratulations Sam and Mark, and all the best to you in your future.
