Last month I finally got to have a snowy winter engagement session with Alex and Matt! We had been watching the weather for weeks, and the stars aligned for us one weekend in January with a fresh snowfall. What’s more – we were lucky enough to meet for this session right before temperatures got really cold!
I met these two on a Saturday morning at one of their favorite local nature trails in Gurnee. Of course, they brought their pups Willow and Kira – who were absolutely thrilled with the fresh snow! We had a blast walking their usual route and finding the most picturesque locations. Alex and Matt’s first date was in January, so it was fun to celebrate their anniversary in such a gorgeous winter scene. These two were a breeze in front of the camera – and experts at keeping each other warm!
After some family photos with the pups, we made our way to a second location with romantic gazebo and majestic evergreens. We couldn’t end our session without a snowball fight – and I’m not even sure who won! Before long, Matt and Alex were back in each other’s arms, full of joy. I am so, so excited to capture their elopement day this spring!
Alexandra and Matthew: I’m so happy we were able to make your snowy winter engagement session dreams come true!! Can’t wait to do it again in just a few months 🙂
