"Let's Talk About Snow Baby."
"Let's Talk About You and Me"


Well, just when we thought Spring Had Sprung, Mother Nature had a few tricks up her sleeve. Our First 2 weddings of April 2016 were 6 Days apart. Saturday April 2nd and Friday April 8th. Both at Aberdeen Manor & Chapel in Valparaiso, Indiana. Also both saw Ice Pellets, and Snow. And of course April 2nd had to add in 50 MPH Wind Gust. Not to be out done, April 8th actually had accumulating Snow by the End of the night. We even had Thunder on the one occasion we attempted images in a Local Park. But you all know, that's OK with Me, I will find a way to get the images that define these Wonderful People on one of the Happiest Days of their lives. It's why hiring an Experienced Professional is one of the best decisions a couple could make for their Wedding Day. For one never knows what Mother Nature has in store on any given day, especially in the Midwest.

Let's Start with April 2nd. Danny & Erika found the White Out Snow Conditions right at the time they were about to do their First Look at 3PM. Me, well. I was actually excited for this challenge as you will see in the images below. Let the Snow Fun Begin.
First Image, I literally ran them outside during dinner to capture the "Last Sunlight" of the Day. I just knew in my Mind's Eye what I wanted this image to look like.

So Mother Nature decided on a Round 2 Six Days Later.

Tom & Morgan planned a nice intimate Wedding for April 8th. Who'd a thunk a Day of Snow off and on in April. Once again as the Snow fell, I ran them out to the Garden at Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso Indiana before the Ceremony and used a few ideas' I had to keep them dry and still get something captured that could Hang on their Walls for years to come.


Of Course We here in the Midwest along the Southern Shores of Lake Michigan are Used to the Snow.
These 2 images were taken by my Wife Sherri, of Me on our first good Snowfall of the Winter way back in November 2015.
Hope you all enjoyed all the images. Please Comment. Would love to see your thoughts.
