Winter Engagement/ Couple Photo Session
Engagement, Wedding Planning
In Canada during November and December we experience quite a decent amount of snow. I can’t say that I am a big fun of it, but I do love to take photos in it. So why not embrace a winter wonderland with winter engagement photos?
Festive, seasonal, and even holiday-inspired, a wintery engagement session is the perfect option for couples seeking an added touch of enchantment to their photos.
For most of our couples that are getting married in the Spring or Summer, this is great opportunity to have their engagement photos taken in the snow.
Here are few our tips how to execute flawless winter engagement photos.
Warm up to these ideas that will inspire you to embrace the most wonderful time of the year.
Pick an Extra-Wintery Location. Wait until there’s a considerable amount of snow on the ground, and be sure to schedule a few back-up dates in case of a blizzard or sudden melt.
Pine trees really add to an image because they contrast so much with the white snow, Pine needles and bark have great texture, which pulls the viewer into the image. We love working in the mountains, where the slightly cooler temperatures mean that the snow’s more fresh and fluffy. In case you can’t make it to the Rockies, winter sessions downtown can be just as stunning. City and holiday lights will also add some beautiful bokeh in the background.
Paired with a chic winter outfit, an urban setting can really highlight the season.
My favourite tip for clients is to wear layer cozy knits, like a sweater or a cowl scarf, grab a bright winter coat, and put on a pair of fingerless gloves. Winter accessories can be really cute, plus, it makes more sense visually to be dressed for winter if you’re being photographed in the snow! Pack a bag of hats, scarves, gloves, hand warmers and a change of socks/clothes.
3. Take Breaks
Even if you’ve layered up with sweaters and scarves, you might want a few minutes to pop inside to warm up. Having a little hot cocoa is a great way to reenergize.” It can make for great photos too! Head to the cutest coffee shop in town and grab a seat by the window.
4. Hope for Snow
Falling snow creates a lovely, romantic feel, as well as a really beautiful light. Since you can’t necessarily time your engagement session with a snowstorm, create the same effect by having someone throw fresh snow up in the air over you.
Don’t forget to enjoy. Despite the cold weather, the purpose of this photo session is to remember why you are doing it at the first place. Maybe this is the last photo session in the snow you will have with your soon to be wife/husband.
