There are certain aspects of winter engagement photos that create a unique and fun image. The sun is lower and when the area is lined with beautiful snow the images take on a special glow that no other season replicates. The Phipps Conservatory in Oakland has a unique look with the glass permitting ‘just enough’ light to penetrate falling on the couple as they embrace to keep warm in the chilly but not too cold winter afternoon sun.
A few days before this area was covered in snow and blinding winds. However, a 20 degree increase in the temperature created a quick cure for cabin fever and a chance for many people to enjoy the beautiful winter sunset. As we were creating these images, there were many patrons walking to and from the Conservatory as well as joggers, parents pushing strollers, and, casual walkers.
I have been in many cities around the country and in a few other countries but there is something special about creating memories in your home town. Pittsburgh is unique with the architecture and scenery.
The setting sun made for beautiful long winter shadows and provided just enough warmth.
“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”
― Yoko Ono
No winter is too cold or dark when you have love.
