@MrsSnowLeopard:  I don’t do well in the cold so as much as I love winter shoots I knew it wouldn’t be for me!

Great advice though!!

@MrsSnowLeopard:  I’d also say… layer.  Thin layers underneath, you’ll be warmer and there won’t be too much bulk.  A cute hat, cute mitts (we’re doing the Canadian Olympic mitts on our wedding day).  Warm boots and warm socks.  Hand warmers (little hotties or similar) in your pockets to hold when you’re not shooting or you’re walking from spot to spot.  

I’d add all of that.  I really wanted winter e photos.  But I haven’t managed to convince FI we need e photos at all!

The ideal thing to do for a snow engagement session would actually be to start shooting when it starts snowing. Walking on snow is not ideal, and you are just going to get wet, dirty and muddy. It’s better to just get the snow falling. I’m saying it’s ideal because in reality, it’s really hard to schedule a session right when the snow is falling… because as photographers you get booked or not…  I’ve gotten lucky during a wedding, when it started snowing, and I got really neat photos. But to do an engagement session, it requires much more planning and it’s much more challenging. I applaud your photographer for dressing up in a snow suit! The photographer probably was in a similar situation before.
