Lily & Joey
Vail Colorado Snowy Mini Engagement
Lily & Joey are getting married in Colorado next summer at Camp Hale! It was such a pleasure to meet these two gorgeous people this past winter. I always love to meet and get to know my clients before their wedding days. For clients from out state, like L&J, it can be harder to accomplish. Luckily, L&J were headed to Colorado for a quick ski trip and menu tasting for their wedding next year. We decided to meet up near Vail, Colorado for a quick mini session so we could all get to know each other. It was the perfect example of a snowy Vail Colorado Engagement Session!
The morning of their session is was snowing hard. Lily & Joey being from Florida, this was a bit of a shock to the system! But these two were troopers and made it work! The snow continued to come down as we started our session. I have to say, I loved every minute of it! It was like being inside a snow globe. Who wouldn’t want this snowy Vail Colorado Engagement Session?!
Given the low light from the snow, I decided to shoot Portra 800 film. I haven’t worked much with Portra 800 yet but after seeing these photos, I’m in love! This entire gallery was shot on 35mm film. The snow acts a perfect natural light reflector and the muted winter colors are just perfection! Except for the fact that we froze our butts off!! It was such a great session and time to get to know these two before their upcoming Camp Hale wedding next year!
