The air is getting colder and that can only mean one thing – it’s almost winter! Winter weddings are so beautiful and you have so many unique opportunities you wouldn’t have during any other season. For those brides that are getting married this winter, you are probably getting ready to do your engagement photos. Take a look at some of our ideas for a perfect winter engagement shoot.

1. Play in the snow.

White is the traditional color of weddings so why not fill your engagements with beautiful white snow?! Snowy photos are a unique way to set yourself apart from other warmer season weddings. It’s also a great way to layer cute clothes for many different outfit options.

2. Head indoors.

Maybe it’s just a little too cold outside, but that shouldn’t stop you from having an adorable photo shoot. There are many different studios that offer great natural lighting in an indoor setting. This is a great way to have a cozy shoot without freezing.

3. Use blankets.

The chilly weather is a great excuse to incorporate a cute blanket into your photos. There are lots of great options, from patchwork quilts to more simple wool blankets. Not only will they keep you warm, but it will be a great excuse to snuggle up close to your fiance.

4. Get with the holiday spirit.

If you’re getting married close to Christmas, why not incorporate some holiday flair in your shoot? Whether it’s a simple pine tree or something a little more festive, like mistletoe or a string of lights, using these props is a great way to celebrate the holidays and your upcoming nuptials.

5. Layers, layers, layers.

An outdoor photo shoot in the middle of winter will be cold. But that doesn’t mean you need to be! Wear lots of layers and a warm coat to make sure you don’t freeze to death while posing for your pictures. The best pictures are the ones where both of you are comfortable so make that a priority. Also, what’s cuter than a beanie and winter jacket?

Make the most of the beautiful winter season coming up and take some photos! We can’t wait to see them printed on your invitation.
