The New England weather has been so topsy turvy this year – a mild fairly snowless winter, torrential rains and floods in early spring, then hot summer-like temperatures followed by cold, windy, drizzly late spring…those who think global climate change is a farce must have their heads stuck in the sand.
What’s that got to do with an engagement shoot? Well, scheduling has been a nightmare – and I’ve totally given up on paying any attention to the weather forecasts!
Mark asked Shelby to marry him while the two were at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire, so it seemed a natural place to do their engagement photos.
Forecast, warm, overcast, occasional rain.
Reality, like a fall day – bright sky, chilly and windy!
Shelby was a trooper – she had a jacket but was committed to being in a short sleeved shirt for the photos…Both she and Mark gutted out the temperatures while I was pretty toasty in a sweatshirt and jacket! When all was done, most of the photos I was holding her jacket, she never turned blue from the cold and we had a great shoot.
Here’s a few from the day.
