Alex + Blake // Engagement Session at Lick Creek Park
Jan 14, 2019 | By: Mary Pena Photography
I'm not quite sure how these pictures turned out looking so golden and cozy when it was so cold outside. It must be because Alex was a big time trooper and smiled despite the chilly wind. Or, it could be because she and Blake are adorable together and wouldn't stop smiling. We tried to do a lot of cuddle posing so that he could keep her warm until the outfit change got her out of that dress and into a scarf!
The sun wasn't doing much to help warm the evening, but it did make a beautiful appearance through the trees. Throw in some cute props, and it made for a fun shoot! Blake is a cop and didn't bring his badge to use in pictures, but when I realized he was wearing it on his belt, I made him hand it over for a ring shot.
My only regret for this photoshoot was that I didn't have mugs of hot chocolate overflowing with marshmallows to hand them, because that would have been so cute on their plaid blanket. I will have to keep that in mind for my next couple that braves a winter portrait session.
Alex and Blake, thank you for your service to the community and for trusting me with your images!
