Fiance and I are thinking about when to do our E-shoot.
We live in Oregon so are slightly hindered by the weather, which leave snowy winter or wait a while and do them in the spring.
The only problem with waiting is that if you aren’t from around here, spring weather is 100% unpredictable.
The wedding is in August, would it be weird for a snowy e-shoot?

I was thinking the same thing when we did our epics this fall right as the leaves were turning and bright bold yellow and orange. Our summer wedding in the lush green mountains makes for a real contrast in seasons. But my photog took us to a pier and we shot there — no leaves, no trees, no fall. Wonderful!
With that said, I think that if you want to do it in the winter, try doing it in indoor places that you like. I saw one today in a coffee shop and thought that was crazy cute. Try to think of what you both like — interests, hobbies maybe — and brainstorm where you could do photos. I also think that some of the best epics I’ve seen were in parking garages. Sounds weird, but they always come out so modern and are a breath of fresh air against all of the naturey grass photos. Bridges are great too.

Hey i live in Oregon! And we’re doing a winter shoot next week! So clearly my response is biased, but I actually thought snowy engagement pictures would be awesome. However, I should also point out that we’re doing another set of engagement pictures in the spring. It wasn’t as difficult to decide on having snowy pictures since we knew we were going to have other ones as well. I think they could be really cool – fun coats and colorful scarves to pop against the snow, or if you want a more elegant look maybe you could find a fur stole or something
