Whenever I get an inquiry from a bride and groom about shooting a mid-December or later wedding, I'm always a bit hesitant to say yes. As much as I love wedding photography, by the end of the year I am usually burned out and in need of a break and adding another shoot so close to the holidays can be problematic, both because of that burn out and also because the weather can be miserable.
Thankfully, I've generally found clients getting married at this time of year to be the easiest to work with and Gunnar and Aileen were no exception.
Gunnar and Aileen were married on a chilly afternoon back in December and they couldn't have been a sweeter pair to work with. All they asked me to do was cover the basics of their day and though we were only together for two and a half hours, we still captured some truly beautiful moments as they become husband and wife.
And, sure, it was cold -- like, really cold -- as we shot their formal photos outside near the water but it was totally worth the slight discomfort when we saw how the photos came out.
So, if you'd like to see why my last wedding of 2018 was one of the most enjoyable I had all year, check out Gunnar & Aileen's big day by clicking here.
