Over the years I’ve photographed in some really cold locations. In October 1990, I was in Wyoming at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains, staring at a moose in the snow in the yard of the house in which I was staying. It was cold.
In December 2007 I was snapping pictures in Times Square in the snow at 2am. The temperature was nineteen degrees with a wind chill of four degrees. It was cold.
In April 2015 I was in Canada photographing Niagara Falls, frozen into a gigantic glacier on the US side. Again, the temperature was in the teens and the wind was whipping. It was cold.
Wendy and Seth deserve a medal for braving the 26 degree temps, 30 knot winds, and icy sleet to celebrate their recent engagement. Truth be told, they’re from Missouri so this felt like an early spring to them, but I was cold…really cold! In fact, it made Wyoming, New York City, and Canada seem hot in comparison.
I’m so glad we went ahead with the engagement shoot in spite of the weather. Because in addition to the rain and sleet and snow, love was in the air Saturday on Front Street in Beaufort. We had a blast making our way around historic Beaufort, retreating to my truck in between every few shots.
Congratulations, you two…couldn’t be any happier for you! And thank you for allowing Beaufort Photography Co. the privilege of photographing this amazing time in your lives. Wish you the very best!
