This adorable couple were scheduled for a cozy late Oct. photo shoot, which in Western, NY usually means – cold! A bit of a chill can sometimes lends nicely to the coziness of a shoot, and naturally encourage cuddling and the warmth that makes an image so striking. So we were prepared. The weeks prior to this session had been downright freezing (literally), and recent wind/rain storms had stripped most of the fall colors away. It was such an extraordinary surprise that on the day of this shoot it was 75 and sunny. So warm!! We also found some of the most beautiful hidden leaves to enjoy and it was such a treat to do so with out the bulk of winter clothing.
In the middle of our time together, we made our way up to the beautiful Mazza Chautauqua Cellars, (of which Anna’s brother is the manager). The architecture and feel of the place became a perfect fit for our remaining time together. What a fun couple!
