A (Almost Cancelled) Dreamy Winter Engagement Session with Ryan and Nina
If bright blue skies set against a wintry backdrop of white snow isn’t enough to make you fall in love, Ryan and Nina absolutely will. We met this sweet couple in February to take their engagement photos on the trails in South Lake Tahoe, but we almost had to cancel because of all of the (massive amounts) snow! Thankfully, as the sun started to peek out, we decided it was worth it to brave the snow - and Ryan and Nina agreed!
The couple, who met six years ago on a company softball team, got engaged at Lover’s Point in Pacific Grove near Monterey, California. Planning an outdoor fall wedding, the couple is (thankfully) adventurous, which means they didn’t hesitate to trek out into the deep snow with us in order to capture some seriously gorgeous shots.
Although we all fell deep into the snow at some point or another (sometimes all the way up to our hips!), we knew that since this was just a mini session (only 30 minutes) we were all going to be okay.
The couple dressed perfectly for the day - his bright shirt popping against the fresh snow and her gorgeous skirt (which she made herself!) being the perfect amount of statement-making formal you want for such a special occasion. Even Ryan and Nina’s dog joined in on the action (and wore the cutest red doggie sweater).
We loved meeting this fun couple and are so glad they were up for a snowy hike!
