Yiselle & Osvoldo’s Lily Lake winter engagement session was one of my favorite sessions from this winter. Blanket snuggle, surprise visits from deer, and a warm sunrise, you’ll want to check it out!
The crack of dawn
As most natives of Colorado know, the winter weather here is unpredictable. This makes for scheduling portrait sessions a bit of a difficult task for some photographers. As Yiselle and Osvoldo were visiting from out of town for their engagement photos, we had a small window of days to do them. The day we had originally scheduled turned out to be a gnarly snowstorm, so we ended up scheduling a sunrise session for their Lily Lake winter engagement photos. Most photographers will agree that the best light is right before sunrise and close to sunset, so we decided to begin our session at 7 am. You guys, waking up at 5 am to drive to Estes Park is not my forte, but these two made it totally worth it!
“1°F… that can’t be right”
I’ll admit that I’m one of those people who complains how “freezing” it is even when the temperature hasn’t dropped below 32°F. When I arrived for this Lily Lake winter engagement, the thermometer in my car read 1°F. I was certain it was wrong, but after checking a weather app, it was indeed freezing… and then some! Now, I can bundle up like an Eskimo and still be able to photograph just fine, but my clients wanting to look nice for their photos didn’t have that same choice. They were troopers! You guys, it was 1°F and they had on maybe 2 layers of clothing. Fear not, we rocked out an entire engagement sessions worth of photos in about 25 minutes. And that is why you work with professionals.
