The weather in Traverse City was strange this year, it barely snowed but when it did snow it came in heavy. That is what Brittany and Nick experienced on the day of their engagement session. Prior to their session they were concerned that there wouldn’t be any snow. They came up to Traverse City for their winter engagement session and were greeted with snow and strong winds. Thankfully they embraced the winter weather and snuggled up close for the pictures. The falling snow was the perfect addition to their beautiful engagement pictures.
Their session started in the morning down at the Duncan L Clinch Marina in downtown Traverse city. There was such beauty in the overcast sky and empty harbor as the happy couple walked around. The strong winds, however, made it difficult to stay outside for too long. So we brought Brittany and Nick into the winds and away from the winds.
Away from the harbor the snow fell softly into Brittany’s beautiful red hair as Nick playfully nuzzled kisses on his wife-to-be. It was a nice change from the blowing winds by the water. With all the snow coming down it only made sense to stop for a few minutes and have the couple build a small snowman. Afterwards, Brittany and Nick warmed up and changed outfits. The sun started to peek through the clouds as we made our way out to the trails nearby. It was a great way to finish up their cold, but wonderful winter engagement portraits.
Thank you again to Nick & Brittany for embracing the cold and rocking your engagement session. We can hardly wait to photograph your upcoming wedding in Gaylord this year! Enjoy.
The wind was blowing so strong at this point, but it was beautiful.
The powdery snow made it difficult to create a snowman, but the managed to still create one.
