Jackie + Michael // Altamont, IL Engagement Pictures

The blog title has engagement pictures in it, but I should probably officially title it pre-engagement pictures. You see, it’s winter, which means it’s not too lively out, nor is it really the best of times to be outside for a couple hours having pictures taken. Noses run, cheeks turn red, and let’s be real, it’s cold out, and this tends to make people hunch over a little. However, Jackie and Michael wanted pictures for their save the dates, so we braved the cold for a little bit to create some images. Even in the short time we shot, we had a great time working with these two. We were able to come up with some great imagery in a short amount of time for their save the dates. In one picture, I wanted to have a little fun with it and make it wintery. I love winter, unfortunately I do not love Illinois winter because we rarely get snow, and if we do, it won’t be until March or something crazy like Spring time. I don’t normally photoshop this way because it’s a lot of work just for one picture, but it is a lot of fun to expand on my photoshop skills to see what I’m able to create. 🙂 I look forward to the real engagement session with these two, this one was a fun time and a great chance to get to work with them before the real deal.
