Carly and Ilan’s snowy engagement portraits

I am not going to lie – editing through these made me shiver a little. Brrr! Carly and Ilan were such good sports during this shoot. They envisioned a snowy engagement shoot, but with the 65 degree weather we’d been having, we had given up hope. Until Saturday that is! We romped around in the snowstorm until our fingers and toes were frozen. I’ve been wanting to bring some more life and movement to my portraits, something more than just poses, and I really think we accomplished it here.

Hopefully their August wedding will be a tad warmer!

    I am so overwhelmed (and crying!) by these pictures, Kara. I had no idea what to expect. You captured Carly and Ilan perfectly. The snow really added to your beautiful photography. I am looking forward to meeting you at the wedding. Emily Kaufman, Carly’s mom
