When you first booked your engagement session, what were you most hoping for and planning for?
Mitali: When we first booked, we were planning for some fun winter pictures outdoors, and then some more intimate ones indoors. We didn’t want overly dramatic or staged pictures, but rather something that reflected us as a couple – something low-key and natural. Everything turned out perfectly!
Will you be using any of your pictures for a formal announcement (invite, newspaper announcement, holiday card, etc)?
Mitali: We used one of the pictures for our Save the Dates, and Yaneck and Sasha have used a selection for our wedding website as well.
How did the inclement weather impact your working relationship?
Mitali: At first, Kathy and I were stressed out about the severe weather and the last-minute change in plans, but both Sasha and Yaneck (the photographers) seemed confident that we would still have a great session. Sitting down in a familiar place and chatting for a few minutes was very helpful.
Yaneck: I think the snow storm made the session so much more fun. Instead photographing by the lake, we decide to go to a coffee place where Katherine & Mitali go often. We first sat down and simply had some coffee. Then we started to photograph while the girls continues to enjoy their morning brew. Luckily we got to the shop pretty early (around sunrise) so the place was not busy yet. Also, people working there were super friendly and allowed us to photograph everywhere.
