Eric and Donna knew they wanted a snowy mountain location for their engagement session. After throwing around a couple ideas we decided to make the quick hike up to St. Mary’s Glacier. We were ready for an adventure but I’m not sure any of us were prepared for just how cold it was going to be!

      I like cold weather and I adore shooting in the snow. I love how everything is naturally cuddly. I don’t have to tell people to act like they are keeping each other warm because that’s what they’re already doing. I’m all about shooting in the cold. But this? This was something altogether different.

      It was 30-something degrees at the trailhead but as soon as we started hoofing it up the hill the temperature started dropping fast. And the wind was howling. By the time we got to the top and started shooting we were all frozen and shivering. I couldn’t feel my fingers – even with gloves on and I’m pretty sure I didn’t warm up until sometime the next day.

      So yeah, it was COLD. But yanno what we did? We made the most of it. Eric and Donna brought a flask of whiskey and a big thermos of hot Skratch cider (new rule: from now on all cold shoots will involve whiskey and hot cider!).  We kept their coats on for pretty much the entire shoot and we cuddled them up as much as possible. And they were total troopers.

      I shouldn’t have been surprised that they were up for anything. These two are no strangers to the outdoors. They met at a bike race and got engaged two days into a 15 day bikepacking trip on the Colorado Trail. Their dog Icarus (aka “Lick-arus”) is their mountain biking and skiing buddy. They’re pretty much totally down with going on adventures and all that it entails. In other words, they’re totally my kind of people.

      I had a blast hanging out with them last weekend and I’m so excited to shoot their wedding at Strawberry Creek Ranch this summer – especially since it should be WAY warmer.

      Enjoy! 🙂
