We have received a crazy amount of snow here in the midwest and it has made for some beautiful scenery. I had scheduled an engagement session for this couple months ago hoping for decent January weather. What we got was the opposite. After conferring with the couple, they were willing to brave the conditions, so out we went. Here's some of what we got.

The client was happy with the results and I am too, based on the circumstances. It was snowing pretty heavily the entire session and I got to test the weather sealing capabilities of both my cameras. I was shooting with a 5dmk3/70-200 f2.8 II and the wife was shooting with a 6D/85mm 1.8. I would shoot a few photos and then cover the camera with my jacket, minimizing exposure to snow. The cameras held up well. I've since ordered rain sleeves so that I don't tempt fate again! C&C welcome!

Awesome work, I love shooting in the snow. Unfortunately my one shoot last week came the day before snowmageddon so I just had windmageddon. Kinda jelous!

The black and white one is a bit dark, making her look older. The rest of them are great!

Love the shots! I'm in SoDak so I know what that snow is like. In weather like this do you use a hood or anything of the sort to protect your lens/camera from the elements/cold?

Yes we had hoods on to protect the front elements from the snow and they worked well. Sadly, I didn't have anything to protect the bodies themselves. After a few seconds exposed, I would have quite a bit of snow buildup near the hotshoe and top LCD screen. It was light enough to blow off and keep shooting. Since my wife was also shooting with me, we would take turns snapping photos and cleaning/covering our cameras with our jackets.

I've since purchased rain sleeves in case I find myself in similar weather.

Fantastic! I think it goes without saying, but you hit it out of the park on this one!
