Carrie & Colin - Engagement Session - Claremore, Oklahoma

I hope everyone had a great Christmas & New Years! I enjoyed allowing myself a few weeks of NO work (...and no blogging :) and had a great time celebrating the holidays with my family & friends.

We spend Christmas in Oklahoma with Hayden's family this year & I was able to squeeze in a quick engagement shoot for his cousin, Carrie, and her fiance, Colin.

For some reason, Oklahoma HATES me! This is my second back-to-back trip down that has had absolutely HORRIFIC weather! My last trip was specifically to do photo shoots, and some had to be moved around or canceled all together because roads were flooded, etc. This time around there was a straight up BLIZZARD. Oklahoma "blizzards" aren't a bunch of snow (like it would be here in Cincinnati) - it starts off with freezing rain which puts a good 2 inches (at least) of ice on the ground, and then the snow starts. This session went down during the freezing rain portion - It was FREEZING cold, with the craziest wind ever. I literally had to hold on to things or I would have blown away.

I can honestly say this was hands down the worst weather I've ever shot in, and I'm SO proud of Colin & Carrie for being such troopers in that craptastic weather. We turned this into a mini-session & made the best out of it! Guys, I'm hoping OK is much nicer to me in August for your wedding :)


Who knew freezing cold look so good?! Gorgeous!

We stopped by an old museum for a few quick indoor shots before wrapping it up (Yes, Will Rogers Memorial for those reading this in Claremore).
