This engagement session at Lake Alvin gives me all the heart eyes. And I think you will get them too! As I type this, we are literally in a blizzard warning. The schools are closed, the roads are crappy. The weatherman is advising everyone to stay home.Last weekend, this was not the case. It was just really freakin’ cold out! Did we plan for snow during Brenda and Kyle’s engagement session? No. Am I grateful that it did snow? 100% absolutely yes, yes, yes!
So we were lucky for the snow, but we were extra lucky because they brought along their sweet puppy, Ellie. Ellie is going to be a BIG dog. You see – Brenda and Kyle are not only recently engaged… they’re brand new homeowners! So they need a big dog for their acreage that they hope to farm at. But for now, she was just a loving puppy that wanted to give everyone kisses. AKA a dream to photograph.
By the end of it, our toes were cold, our noses were pink, and we were definitely ready to head inside to some heat, but I am loving this snowy winter session so much that I just knew you had to see it! It’ll warm your heart – even in the middle of a good ol’ South Dakota blizzard. 🙂
The snow was like the movies, light and fluffy, but coming down in big clumps, which actually makes for perfect pictures! That’s right, all of this snow in these pictures is real – no photoshopping around here, you guys know that! 😉
The snow starts to collect in your hair after a little while, and I don’t know about you, but I think that makes it even more wintery and dreamy!
When the snow sits on the trees like that. Insert heart eye emoji!!
This was actually my first time shooting an engagement session at Lake Alvin but I’ll definitely be back. It’s so perfect! And not too far from Sioux Falls, either!
