we wanted to do that. it just didn’t work out that we had a nice big snow storm when photographer was ava. We wanted to wear summer clothes and take pics after a blizzard but just didn’t happen.

Good luck, I love winter!

Try to PM Mrs. Champagne.  She did a day-after shoot in the snow and might have some tips/advice!

We did our e-pics in February here in Minnesota, so it was most definitely cold and snowy.  We wore our coats and stuff in a few pictures and to me, it seemed like we were just really representing our lives in the truest sense, since we do spend the majority of the year freezing our butts off, haha.  We did take coats off for a few pictures – I wore a skirt with warm tights and my boots, we each wore sweaters and stuff so we could manage standing around for about 15 minutes at a time coat-less. 

The tougher part was getting the light right.  The snow reflecting, the limited daylight, etc. 

Just get some hot cocoa afterwards!  I think winter pics are beautiful!

i would love to find a couple that wants their e-sesion in winter….would be so cool, you could make a snowman (tons of great ideas for that), make snow angels, hot chocolate haha…would be a wicked e-session….

 

only problem is gear gets frozen, as do hands (cant photograph wearing gloves), but i would suffer it for a great session!

Winter engagements pictures sound beautiful.  Is there a cozy lodge or cabin by you? You could do pics my a chimney or holding hot coco mugs. Or out in the snow! If there is no snow, somewhere forest-y? You could wear a cute scarf with a jacket. Yes, winter epics sound lovely.

Yeah I’d love to do a winter eSession.. even if my fingers fall off or my gear freeze over..

Well you can possibly do some winter shots on the farm, by the fences.  And then move into more warmer locations by the windows.

oooh! scout out some great locations first, and make sure you mix them up- we did a few mountain scenes and then a river scene and then a scene kind of in the town. Find a few photos that you love and show them to your photographer… here are some ideas from a post I did a while back:

And I’ll include a few shots from our day after photo session too- have fun and don’t forget to share them with us when you’re done!

mschampagne – Your pictures are amazing great.  I love the snow in the background with you in your wedding dress.  If given the chance, I would have loved to do that.

I’m going to be a winter bride and I really hope it snows. Though I know it won’t cause of global warming. When was the last time it snowed in December in Philly? Not for years. Oh well…I will be prepared for any weather scenario.
