Dianne & David: Newlywed Session On the Beach!

As I said in yesterday’s post, Dianne and David weren’t leaving for that enviable honeymoon until Monday, which gave them time to do a fun Newlywed Session the morning following the wedding. So we met them at the beach the next morning bright and early — and COLD! I had on jeans, a shirt plus a sweatshirt, and my winter coat; there was a layer of ice on the windshield of our car, and the weather channel said it was 34 degrees! Did I mention it was COLD? But they were such troopers, and so wanted to do these photos, that they braved the chilly morning!  (I promised to include those details in the blog post, so there you go!) I think these images were soooooo worth the cold!

Dianne wore Ken’s heavy jacket until the last possible moment, then I’d take it, we’d shoot, and I’d run back over to put it back on her ’til we were ready for the next shot.

David had an idea in his head for making sand angels — how fun!

We love to get shots of the rings in some unique way that features something about the couple or the wedding. In this case, having the beach and ocean in the background was perfect. David’s ring is made of a metal called palladium, like platinum in durability and looks, but lighter in weight, since it’s much bigger than Dianne’s dainty infinite ring.

The weather might have been cold, but some of these photos are kinda steamy.

When we were done with everything else, David said he wanted to scoop Dianne up and wade into the water. He promised to keep her dry, but she said if she had to get in the water for a photo, she’d do it. Gotta love a girl like that! (But, for the record, we did keep her dry!)

Thanks for braving the cold with us!
