Nicolette & Paul Engagement

Don't be fooled by the fact that any winter postcards of D.C. show snow-covered national landmarks. As a former Michigander, I can honestly tell you that we don't get much snow around here. So I was giddy-excited when Nicolette and Paul agreed to change their photo session so that we could shoot in falling snow.
To add to my weather excitement, I was thrilled to show up to the location and find such a beautiful couple as my photo subjects! Nicolette and Paul met in California and later even discovered that they had been born in the same hospital. They reconnected and became engaged while living in Virginia which is why they told me that Virginia truly is for lovers. :o)

We lasted about 30 minutes in the cold, wet snow. I called it a day when my finger was too frozen and stiff to press the shutter button. So we met again the next day to finish the session and were blessed with some gorgeous sun!

How to choose just one for your Save the Date card. All of them are gorgeous!! My favorite is the one by the barn, Nicolette is looking at the camera, holding flowers, and Paul is looking at Nico.

They are all so CUTE! But, if had to choose one I think I would have to go with the one next to the barn with Paul looking at Nicolette and Nicolette looking at the camera and holding the flowers. The heart one is really cute too....so hard to decide!
