To say that this lovely couple was up for anything is an understatement. For starters, they are the first couple (or anyone for that matter) that I have ever been able to talk into a sunrise session let alone a sunrise session in the middle of a South Dakota Winter. Second, I’d like to say that we woke up to an unseasonably warm day that December but that wouldn’t be anywhere near the truth. It ended up being somewhere around -27 degrees Fahrenheit that day and I think the second coldest day that winter.
They were troopers though! fighting through the cold looking fierce and in love the entire time. I, on the other hand, came dressed to climb Mt. Everest wearing a hodge-podge of things I found in both mine and my husbands closet. We stopped intermittently for breaks to ensure that nobody got frost bite and that we could capture everything they desired.
