Guys, it’s COLD here. I mean, for a Southern state. We got some snow last week (not enough to be pretty, sadly) and ice that made the roads a bit treacherous (especially the little winding road that leads to our neighborhood, up a hill and with a sharp drop off on one side…yikes), and it’s been sub-freezing ever since. It’s been in the negative temps at night!! Ya’ll! I can’t! I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this here before, but I’m from Texas and this kind of weather is so not my jam. But you know what? Sometimes you find a reason to brave the cold, and these two were a great reason indeed. The day we did Megan and Alex’s Arkansas engagement photos in Petit Jean State Park, it was snowing and sleeting at my house. As I headed farther southeast to the park (it’s about a 3 hour drive for me), the weather cleared and the sun came out, and the temperatures rose about 20 degrees! Megan and I were texting all about how amazing it was that the weather was going to be perfect, we were so excited! And then as soon as we got there and got ready to shoot, the temps dropped and the wind picked up, and they just about froze to death. But you can’t tell , right?! They were super troopers, perfectly willing to do whatever I asked and they were so joyful through it all.
When these two inquired about wedding photography a few months ago, I totally creeped Megan’s Instagram account and found the link to their proposal story. I feel like I’d be remiss if I didn’t share a link to that here, because it’s just SO GOOD. Alex obviously put a ton of time and effort into making it perfect (I legit cried when I got to the picture of Megan sitting on their swing). Go read it (and weep)!
Here are some of my very favorites from their beautiful (and cold!) engagement session. Enjoy!!
