Mina & Jose

Kirstie Tweed/Orange Girl

Mina & Jose had a beautiful wedding at The Post Hotel this June. They wanted to come back to see what their favourite places looked like in winter so they travelled from Chicago to stay at The Post and we got to meet up with them on a very cold gorgeous winter wonderland morning at Emerald Lake for photos. Mina asked me if I had any suggestions on what to wear and I told her that red looks beautiful photographed against the snow so I was giddy when I saw Mina step out of the car in gorgeous red. It was perfect for our snowy landscape. We walked in knee deep snow and even took an icy foot dunk on a slushy lake. It was a freezing -20 and the water was creating a magical fog and dreamy painterly like quality. It was wonderful to get to see these two sweet people again and enjoy a stunning winter day in the mountains.
