Melissa + Hunter: Snow Day Portraits


Husband and wife stand in the middle of a street lined with snow covered evergreen trees as they rest their foreheads together and hold the leashes of their two dogs while getting photos taken in Brown County State Park in Indiana.

I love when everything just comes together and makes a session absolutely perfect. It's exactly what happened for Melissa & Hunter's session earlier this month. When Melissa originally reached out to schedule her session, she said she already had a location in mind because it was so sentimental to her and her husband, Hunter. Not only did Melissa grow up going to this park, but it's where Hunter proposed and where they had their engagement photos taken. Since those photos were taken in the fall, Melissa has a dream of getting photos taken in this same park for every season. We were prepared for just a cold late fall, early winter day to cross off the winter season, but Mother Nature had other plans. It started snowing the morning of their session and we truly had a winter wonderland all to ourselves! It was absolutely STUNNING! I am so in love with how these photos turned out and think they're a great mix of love, laughter, and fun!
