Katie and Joel | First Christmas

untitled shoot-082-2-Edit

Katie and Joel are my dear friends who just got married in June. They always give me the go ahead to be creative and crazy, so I pulled them outside in the dark and in the rain/snow to get these festive pictures in a Christmas Tree lot. James came along and held my speedlight. He is secretly hiding behind Katie and Joel in half these pictures.

Time for some hot cocoa!

I call this picture on the right "ghosts of christmas present"- my flash was too close and totally ghosted them out. But I kinda like it!
