Brett + Josh | Engaged – Tree Farm Inspired Shoot

Back in late November I met Brett and Josh on one of our first frigid days of this Winter season! For engagement and family sessions (with young children) the cold temps always concern me.. My biggest worry is that they will be too uncomfortable from the cold to obtain genuine photos.. i.e. scary faces in photos, teeth clinched visibly – etc etc. I always check in with my clients the morning of their session to warn them of said temperatures, make sure they will be dressed appropriately, and to check that they still want to do the session with what we’ve been given! Brett & Josh were totally game for giving it a whirl! I’m glad they were because that blustery day gave us some gorgeous light to work with.

These two are sincerely the sweetest. You can tell how comfortable they are with one another! They are some of the lucky ones. Before I got there – I planned in my head what setups to do first, when I could allow them a break in the shoot to warm up in their car, and basically tried to get a timeline before sunset.. Thus preventing frostbite, and miserable conditions! Ha.

We picked a great day to visit Dull’s Tree Farm. They had just started decorating for Christmas and the rush for Christmas trees hadn’t quite started yet. I love working with Dull’s and can’t wait to shoot this adorable couples wedding in July this year!

I filled my Stanley thermos up with hot chocolate and loaded up on blankets. I knew they might need to warm up during the session. These two have a passion for reading. On one of their first dates Josh actually read to Brett! How cute, right? Bookworms after my own heart! 🙂
