When Ali first contacted me, asking if we could do some photography in December, I was thrilled. It’s rare that anyone wants to brave the winter cold, and I was hoping this might present a chance to do some snow images—something I’ve always wanted to do. But, alas, it’s gonna have to wait for another year. Instead, we were greeted by a nice warm day, one more typical of October than the week before Christmas. At any rate, I had a great time hanging out with Ali and Benet, touring around Keeneland for their engagement shoot. And I’m really looking forward to their wedding this June.
