Snowy Swallow Falls Engagement Session: Rachel & Nick
For Rachel and Nick’s Swallow Falls State Park engagement session we were blessed with both warmth and snow. Garrett County had gotten some snow just a few days before, but then the temperatures warmed up and we experienced some spring-like conditions. The only thing better than photographing in beautiful snow is photographing in beautiful snow in 55 degrees. No hand warmers needed!
These are are stylish and sweet. Walking around the forest and talking with them so easy. We talked, we laughed and we even slipped on the slushy, wet snow remains. They warned me of their seemingly non-photogenic ways, but they did a wonderful job in front of the camera! I’m excited to take more pictures with them today at The White Barn at Lucas Farm for their wedding!
Rachel and Nick, here’s a big chunk of my favorites from our time together in the forest. There will be PLENTY of favorites from your wedding today, I just know it. 🙂
Snuggling and laughing within the first 10 minutes! Holler!
Rachel’s got a good, soft look and I love when we discover this during an engagement session! Now I know we can repeat that on the wedding day…
I love casual walking pictures! Walk slow as turtles, don’t look at the camera the whole time, look down occasionally to make sure you’re not going to fall or trip over anything, AND smile at the same time. 🙂
One of the most photogenic spots at the park. This is at Swallow Falls, the “middle falls” on the 1.25 mile loop. If you’re visiting the park, make sure you see ALL THREE falls!
Rachel and Nick absolutely nailed this next series! Some of my favorite photos from their session…
I think this might be “their pose!”
A favorite of the favorites!
And one final stop on the tour, Tolliver Falls. An especially magical, photogenic spot in the forest…
And of course a few more on our way out. These tall trees and this trail always make a great spot for pictures!
