The winter Tibble Fork reservoir Bride & Groom Session with Becky & Matthew could not have been more perfect! The weather was warming up, so it was around 45 degrees, the sky was partially cloudy, and there was no wind, and the snow was hard packed and easy to walk on.
Tibble Fork Reservoir is a beautiful place to shoot with lots of background options, but the high slop up the road is one of my favorite places to take pictures, so off we went up the hill.
I love the look of the beautiful pine trees with the mountains behind them. They seem to turn even more green in the winter time and the air was fresh with the scent of pine trees. And when the sun came out every once and a while, it would glisten on the freshly fallen snow. It looked like a Christmas greeting card.
One difficulty with shooting in a winter landscape is that if a dress is true white, it can get lost in the snowy ground. But I use a program to bring out the dress for the background and give it a more detailed look.
Becky and Matthew were lots of fun to work with. They could not stop smiling for a minute, even with the serious shots. I guess that's a great sign that they are happy and make a great couple! At one point in the shoot i asked them to just be themselves, just talk and laugh and play in the snow. That's when you get the best pictures!
