Winter hiking/exploring is one of our favorite things to do. We stumble upon the coolest places that we never knew were there, and we’re always like, “oh, this would be such a great place for an engagement session!” I get all excited for a while, but no one ever seems to want to go freeze their ass off in 20 degree weather while we snap a million pictures of them in some remote wooded location. Go figure…
So, when Mary and Rob agreed to do their engagement session at Wendt Beach State Park, (one of our magical winter exploration locations), I was “off the charts” excited! I LOVE this place! Yes, it’s a beach; but in the winter, the landscape changes dramatically to reveal ice carved sculptures and amazing piles of driftwood.
We started on the beach, by the lake. There was almost no wind that day, which was AWESOME…How amazing is this landscape?
…and a sweet tree-stump-island ice sculpture
When I saw these icicles that looked like fingers, I knew I had to use them. I love, love, LOVE this; and, Mary’s ring is gorgeous!
We were loving the little random log cabin. Jenn’s perspective…
…and Ben’s perspective!
We had to include this picture in the post to demonstrate the extent of Mary and Rob’s awesomeness…we can’t take any of the credit for this pose; it was totally their idea! Brilliant!
This one is super-fun-happy…LOVE it!
Mary and Rob, thanks for being so much fun to hang out with! The next time we get to hang out, you’ll be getting married! YAY!
Talk to you soon!
