I am such a goofball when it comes to snow! I think it's the South African in me... Every time when just the slightest bit falls I'm that person who messages everyone. Even after almost 6 years in Korea, I still think it's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Everything is so magical when it snows. The world looks so pretty! A session in the snow has been on my bucket list since day one of me starting my photography-career and although I have tried my best, the snow gods have never answered my prayers, until now.
Winter has been pretty warm this year and then it suddenly decided to turn on us. It became frigid and we had spots of snow every other week. I kept my eye on the weather and I had a feeling that this time I would be lucky. So since I didn't have a shoot lined up for that specific weekend, I posted on Facebook for a couple that would be willing to freeze their butts off for me. Matt and Annie decided they were brave enough to face the cold!
These two were absolutely fantastic to work with. Not only are they a gorgeous couple, they have such a beautiful chemistry about them and without them, no matter how much snow fell, this shoot would not have been such a success! I have also added a new member to my team: my fantastic makeup artist! Despite her cold this girl did such a great job and even stuck it out until the very end! So much gratefulness for her!
Matt and Annie, thank you so much for being so amazing and being such great sports! It was not easy being out there in the cold looking as good as you did, so from the bottom of my heart thank you, thank you, thank you! I had an absolute blast with the two of you and I hope we can work together again in the near future!
