Winter Jordan Pines Campground bride and groom session with Cherie & Dallin
The Winter Jordan Pines Campground bride and groom session with Cherie & Dallin started near the Jordan Pines Campground, but it did not end there!
We had planned on doing a surprise first look tricking the groom with his brother-in-law, not the bride, but for various reasons the Cherie and Dallin were about 30 minutes late, so we decided to just start without the surprise and went right to the river for a real first look.
The Jordan Pines campground area is an amazing place for a winter photo shoot. There is a main road heading towards the campground that is well maintained, but off to the left and right of the road are many places with totally different backgrounds to shoot. If the snow is heavy, like it was today, you have to know where you are going and make trails for the couple to get there in about 2 feet of snow.
So far this year there have not been any other photographers that I have seen here, making it a great place to shoot. There were some kids sledding but they were not a problem. There is also a small pine tree here that somebody decorated, but the snow was so deep getting to it now that we could not make it.
The best part of the shoot actually happened when it was over and I was going back down the canyon. I found a small bend in the road where there was a hill you could climb on to and the view was amazing!! The sky was pink and the clouds low giving the whole area a mystical look. I immediately called Cherie and Dallin and asked if they could get down here, and they were right in the middle of doing a re-creation of the surprise first look with the videopgrapher, so they hurried down and made it in about 20 minutes. The pink sky was gone, and it was getting dark, but the whole place looked spectacular.
The pictures above are just a very few of my favorites from the Winter Jordan Pines Campground bride and groom session with Cherie & Dallin. Enjoy!
