We just got married on NYE, unfortunately we had a DJ hiccup and couldn’t get as many pictures as we would have liked, but we took pictures in front of our church as well as on the local museum steps.  We would have liked to have gone to a semi-wooded area to do pictures as well, but we couldn’t because of the DJ thing.

Snow ball fight? Like a winter version of TTD photos. We’re not gauranteeing on snow but if we do get snow we want to take a picture on the bridge at our state park. Mainly our photo ideas work for year round. We both LOVE the idea of going to places that are common. For instance before the ceremony after we get all dolled up I want to take my girls to our local mall to do a photo shoot. He wants to take his fellas to Waffle House (no idea why). Thought it’d be fun to do a counter shot of all of us, but with 14 ppl running in there just for a photo… well yea maybe not a good idea. We’re going to clear it with the restaurant where we had our first date to go get a photo done in the booth we sat at. It seemed appropriate, we’re also hosting our rehearsal dinner there.  Him and his guys are going to do some classic record poses. And I’m considering going by our old high school, where we met, to get a photo in the exact same spot (thank God it was outside!) And one leaning up against our school mascot. Ya know with all these ideas I’m thinking that I might have to schedule our ceremony earlier then planned. LOL.

Snow would be great, but I’m not sure that we’ll get any! Last year we had a ton and this year there has been none.

We’re more likely to have a cloudy day or a rainy day. We have a plan to take some outdoor pics if it’s not raining, but otherwise we’ll do our pics inside. We’re planning to spend our wedding night at a fancy hotel that we’ll pick mostly based on how cool the lobby, stairs, etc would look in pictures ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re taking our e-pics during the height of summer to guarantee that we get some nice pictures of the two of us outside.

@sapphirebride we are doing the same thing with our engagement pics. We are hoping for snow for outside pictures for our wedding, but are not guaranteed. Its possible that it will be raining.

So we are going to do our engagement session in the summer at the ball park ๐Ÿ™‚

As long as it doesn’t act like this year did, we’ll for sure be getting some pictures in the snow. I don’t think we’ll have a snowball fight though because Fiance isn’t very fun in those things and would probably get me soaking wet in my dress lol

The resort we’re getting married at is located underneath the Heavenly gondola in South Lake Tahoe, so after our ceremony, we’re going to take the gondola up to the top (10,000 feet!) to take pictures at sunset!  I still haven’t decided what I’m going to wear over my dress or if I’m going to wear snow boots, but I’m excited to get amazing pictures!  My hopes are for snow on the ground, but an actual sunset (not a storm)!

Look for locations outdoors that are dramatic (architectural pieces, great lighting “moments”, amazing big tree, mountainous backdrop, etc) to get the most from your outdoor photos. Try to get some late afternoon pics for the best lighting, and make sure your photographer has done these types of pics and knows how to get the best out of them (vs. just indoor photos)!

I’m not having a winter wedding, but I photographed a lady who had her pictures outside… if you wanted to see them, PM me. I’d post them except I don’t want to violate any privacy for the girl I photographed ๐Ÿ™‚

ps I think they’re LOVELY!

She had a beautiful vintage style navy blue coat, we photographed with it on and with it off. It was lovely
