Ok, winter, you are no longer a novelty, and you’re not even remotely charming…I am so over you.

Sarah and Mike’s engagement session may have been our coldest assignment EVER. It had to have been in the single digits; it was no joke. Luckily, we both have cold weather Under Armour, and the amazing ability to block out whatever is going on around us to get the shots we want to get. We met up with our fabulous couple at the Orchard Park Train Station for a “no nonsense, get amazing shots before we all turn into icicles” photo session. We were so worried about making them stand out in the freezing cold, but when they pulled up, and Mike stepped out of the car with NO coat on (and my partially frozen jaw dropped in disbelief/awe), I knew that we were about to have an awesome shoot; and, of course, that’s exactly what happened!

We started out in front of the train station, and grabbed a few shots with this great OP sign…

Then, we strolled around the grounds of the main building, stopping here and there to use the amazing backdrops it had to offer…I was loving the brick/snow combination!

There were two old train cars hanging around that were absolutely perfect for our purposes. Bright colors on a cold winter’s day are a welcome sight!
