Winter is one of my favourite seasons to photograph portraits in. Don’t get me wrong – I love every season, and every season has it’s pros and cons. Spring is beautiful because of all of the blooming flowers, Summer is beautiful because of the longer days and the gorgeous weather, and Fall is awesome just because of the vibrant oranges and reds in the leaves.
You might wonder, then, “What is it about Winter that is so amazing, Bryan”. Well, for me, even though it is bitter cold outside, there is something about the rosey cheeks, the warm, cozy clothes and the contrast of the white snow that I just love!
You see, as much as us Canadians complain about the snow and the cold, I really don’t think that I could do without it. Not only do I love all of our winter activities here in Canada – skiing, in particular – but I just couldn’t do without those amazing winter portrait sessions (and the amazing hot chocolates that follow).
I met up with Ashley and Braden yesterday for their engagement session. They are having a backyard wedding this coming September, up North, and it’s couples like Ashley and Braden that make my job the best job in the entire universe! They are so much fun, easy to get along with and completely care-free. Not to mention they belong on the cover of Vogue magazine!
Ashley and Braden are working with wedding planner extraordinaire Tara Santo, from Planned to a T. Tara has an office in Thorold, and she is helping Ashley and Braden not only through the wedding planning process, but will also be providing day-of coordination at their wedding this Fall. I always encourage our couples to think about having a day-of wedding coordinator, because they take all of the stress and worry completely off of your back on the wedding day.
Ashley, Braden and I hung out in Niagara-on-the-Lake – down by the water (which was really cold) and then wandering the streets of the downtown core.
I hope that you enjoy some of these images.
Remember that we have our “It’s Love: Mini-Sessions” promotion running for the first two weeks in February. See how amazing these winter couples-portraits turn out? This could be you – check out more information at www.bcapphoto.com/itslove. ]]>
