I was supposed to meet Allie and Jesse at the beautiful Market At Grelen a week earlier than I did but I got super sick a couple days beforehand. I thought I’d be better in time but I ended up having to go to MedExpress instead. 🙁 I got the worst cold I’ve ever had and not only was I not able to talk, but I could barely move. Although I almost always push through when I’m sick, I didn’t take great care of myself this fall with being as busy as I was and I knew I needed to rest. I had to reschedule the shoot for the next week and thankfully Allie and Jesse were kind enough to make it work right before Christmas!! It ended up being perfect and we had the best overcast day!
Allie had a vision of two things for her shoot — Christmas trees and Christmas lights! I thought of Grelen immediately when she said Christmas trees but I hadn’t ever actually seen the property in person so I told her I couldn’t promise the lights but maybe we’d get lucky. Well, I pulled up a little early to location scout and there were lights all over the property!! YAY!! I asked if they could turn them on and they were more than happy to light the place up for Allie! It looked so festive! I don’t think I’ve never done a shoot this late in the year so it was really fun that the venue was all set up for Christmas!
Allie and Jesse, you guys totally embraced the fun of this shoot and it made me so happy! I loved capturing your love! You guys were the best people to jump over frozen creeks in 20 degree weather with! Haha! Thanks for making a pitstop for this shoot on the way to visit your family! Hope you had a Merry Christmas and that these photos bring smiles to your faces every time you look at them!! Can’t wait for August when it’s a little bit warmer! 🙂
