Utica, NY : Josh and Bianca

When my husband and I went to New York to visit family in January I was able to meet up with Josh and Bianca for an engagement session. I had met these two a few times because they are friends of the family. Josh and I were actually in a bridal party together last year and Bianca was at the bachelorette party, but I had never had the opportunity to hang out with them solo until this day, and let me tell you, I have been missing out!

After catching up and easing some pre-shoot nerves over a beer we headed to a park in Utica and started exploring. Pretty much all of Central New York had just been hit with a snow storm a few days prior so there was a ton of snow on the ground, and since it was still pretty cold out we had the park to ourselves! We definitely had to do some fancy footwork to get to a few spots and at one point I fell into snow that was up to my thighs, but we found some lovely spots and the sun was perfect!

Josh and Bianca have the most playful relationship. They are constantly making each other laugh, which made for the best pictures. It was so cold out that we kept taking jacket and glove breaks to warm up for a bit. Most people would have wanted to stop shooting early, but they were troopers. After a quick warm up we would get right back to it! I am so happy with how these came out and I can’t wait for these two to get married and live happily ever after!
