Portraits in the Snow | Anthony + Jill | Richmond Engagement Photographer

I have been WAITING for snow all winter!!  After all the snow that had come through and completely MISSED us, I was convinced that we just weren’t going to get any this year!!  Well, then, the forecasts started and they started predicting a couple inches and with our luck, it was still early and just like every other storm, I wasn’t going to get my hopes up because it would probably end up as rain as it got closer!  Then, they started calling for several more inches but yet, I still didn’t want to get my hopes up but was secretly hoping it was going to play out!  So, when the snow started,  I was a little kid!!  I yelled to the girls to come look at the snow!!  And then as it was coming down and the roads and grounds were covered, big flakes started coming down and it looked like a winter wonderland!!  Ahhh, the photographer in me couldn’t hold it in anymore and I had to go out and take some portraits and QUICK because it was about to get dark!!  I have to preface that we have THE.BEST neighbors EVER and so I texted Jill and asked her if she’d be up for some quick snow portraits!!  Anthony finished up his work call that he was on and they were out shortly after and we got to capture these!!  These two, ahhh, they are some of the sweetest people that you will EVER meet and the two of them together, is, let’s just say, I can’t get enough!!  They are that couple that you can’t help but admire and makes you want to find that kind of love!!  They make you smile!  They make you laugh!  And they make you want to fall in love!!  Anthony and Jill, I can’t thank you enough for braving the cold and making my dream of snow portraits come true!!  These are some of my absolute favorites EVER and I wish it could snow all the time!!  Okay, maybe just have a personal snow bubble like Olaf ends up with because this girl needs some warmer weather!  One big, pretty snow is PERFECT for me!!!  But until then, enjoy some of my favorites of one of my favorite couples in this snowy portrait session!!


Winter wonderland!!!
