This cold Minnesota weather has me thinking about this airplane elopement styled shoot I attended in January 2021. It was one of the coldest days of the year and the models never complained once. In fact, I think us photographers complained more than the models and we were all bundled up from head to toe. I couldn’t get over the fact that Mariah was sleeveless and still managed to look flawless while I felt like I was dying in my multiple layers, my winter coat, hat, and mittens!
Can you imagine running off after your beautiful winter wedding and having a private plane as your “getaway car”? It would truly be an unforgettable experience!
I never had a chance to edit and post these last year because I was busy with my teaching job and then before I knew it, it was summer and it didn’t feel like the right time to share these. Now that we are coming into winter once again, it’s time for these beauties to get the attention they deserve.
This styled shoot took place at the Anoka County – Blaine Airport in Blaine, Minnesota.
