I had my first engagement shoot yesterday. I was feeling pretty confident until I got out on the ski hill that they had picked as a location. It was -17 Celsius, windy, and the hill was pumping out fake snow all day. I could barely keep up with the ice building up on my non-weather-sealed camera, and had to continuously cycle batteries between my camera and my inner pockets to keep everything going. Regardless, we made the most of it.

I'd love some feedback, I can take criticism.

the flash behind them doesnt work for me
the kiss looks under exposed
on snowy days being close to trees looks really nice,
i feel like there were opportunities missed with getting close and warm next to each other pics

Made a couple re-edits. Appreciate the input. The flash in the background was way too bright. My viewfinder and lcd were constantly getting covered in ice and it turns out I'm more dependant on instant feedback from my camera than I thought…
