Polar Vortex Snow Squall

Some photos from this week's polar vortex snow squall, captured on the Canon EOS R using my converted Lubitel medium format lens, and fully edited on iPhone XS.

It’s single digits here with a windchill around -15ºF, but it’s colder than Antartica in Chicago this week, with a windchill of -50ºF; and guess where I’ll be next week…. I’m hoping it’s only in the single digits while I’m there.

Rachel and Andrew: Engaged

Rachel and Andrew are a fun couple that loves wine tasting, the outdoors, and their animals; two dogs and two horses.

Not so secretly I've been excited for this shoot for months... it was just a waiting game with Mother Nature.  Finally, after months of bitter cold, the DC area actually got a snowstorm perfect for Rachel and Andrew's snowy engagement session.

As an outgoing couple, naturally it was no surprise a snowball fight quickly broke out.

Even the dogs got in on the action!

While Rachel and Andrew have energy abound, things really got crazy when they brought their horses out to play in the snow.  First was Tori, who is a Section D Welsh Cob.

Next to join the fun was Anakin, Tori's energetic son.  Anakin is a mix of a Section D Welsh Cob and a Section B Welsh Mountain Pony.
