Petoskey Winter Engagement Session – Steve & Ally

23 Apr Petoskey Winter Engagement Session – Steve & Ally

I’m so happy that I am able to share with you all one of my greatest old friends’ winter engagement session! Meet Steve and Ally! Steve and I have known each other for close to 15 years, so naturally when he told me he was preparing to propose to his girlfriend Ally last summer, I was over the moon excited! After seeing their beautiful winter engagement photos on facebook, I knew right away I wanted to feature them on our blog. Their session took place during the frigid cold month of February in my beautiful hometown of Petoskey, Michigan. Their adorable dog Chloie joined them… how cute!

Some words from Steve:

“The photos were done by Stephanie Baker of Harbor Springs. She was awesome to work with and was a trooper considering it was just under 15 degrees out and blowing. We had two scheduled appointments prior to the shoot but had to cancel both of them due to the consistent below zero temperatures. Chloie had a good time and cooperated relatively well… it just required a lot of attention and dog biscuits.”

Some sweet words from Ally:

Stephanie Baker, our photographer, is so full of life and excitement, it’s hard to not smile while she is behind the camera. I think we were smiling too much so she asked a few random but fun questions to change our expressions… like “If Ally were a fruit, what would she be?” Our session lasted less than a half hour. All of our fingers and toes were numb and we ran out of treats for bribing Chloie. My favorite thing about our winter photos was realizing that no matter how much time we spent getting ready, mother nature still makes a mess of your hair and turns your cheeks and nose rosy.”

There is something so romantic about the snow. Many people don’t understand my love for the winter months, and I will admit that once February and March roll around, I’m ready for Florida, but these pictures were just absolutely serene and stunning… Steve and Ally = 1, Frigid Cold Weather = 0. Steve and Ally are getting married this summer at the lovely Castle Hill Farms in beautiful Charlevoix, Michigan. The last time I saw this gorgeous couple was three and a half years ago at my very own wedding. Needless to say, I am unable to contain my happiness for these two and am so grateful I’ll have the opportunity to watch them say their vows in June!
