Charlotte NC Engagement | Chad & Elise

It was a freezing, wintry afternoon when we met up with Chad & Elise. We wandered through the woods looking for sunny spots of warmth. Here are a few favorites from their engagement…

Charlotte NC Engagement

Welcome to one of the most freezing engagement sessions we’ve ever photographed! We absolutely love (and will always recommend) having your engagement session during the Winter time. For a few reasons, we think they are really fun and a really pretty time of year to have engagement pictures taken. However, that can sometimes mean, very cold weather. The positive to having chilly weather, means more cuddly pictures and absolutely no sweat… which is awesome! AMIRITE?! But on the other hand, it is tough to shoot for a very long period of time when the wind won’t give you a break. This couple was AMAZING throughout this cold, wintry afternoon! It was actually a very beautiful day but the constant wind chill kept reminding us that it is only February.

We loved that Chad & Elise picked their grandparents land to have their pictures taken. It is a place they have had many family photos taken before and so it was quite fitting to have some of their own memories made there.

Despite the difficult weather, this couple was an adorable pair to photograph and we loved getting to hang out with them before their wedding day gets here, this March. We are thankful for these pre-wedding sessions because it gives us an opportunity to get to know our couple before having them in front of our cameras again on their special day. Which to us is invaluable!

Chad & Elise – Thanks for being troopers through the crazy, cold wind and for still managing to look cool in front of our cameras. We adore your style and can’t wait to document your wedding day, soon!
