"Get cozy with your honey this winter: Tips for the perfect winter engagement photo session"

An engagement session takes a lot of planning, from choosing a location to picking out what to wear, but a photoshoot in the winter takes a little more thought. Don’t let the cold scare you off from getting gorgeous photos, especially if there’s snow on the ground! There are definitely ways to fully prepare for winter engagement photos and get images you’ll absolutely love!

Consider How You Respond to Cold Weather.

Some of us love the winter weather more than others. If you're one of those people, an engagement photo session in this season is perfect for you! Every person is different, and some of us stand cold better than others. If you love the winter weather, an engagement photo session in this season is perfect for you!

If you are not comfortable with the cold, it will show in your photos.

You may feel more comfortable during a winter engagement session if you wait for there to be a good amount of snowfall. If the roads are icy or if the snow suddenly melts, talk to your photographer about having backup dates.

Be Sure to Bundle Up For Your Engagement Session

STAY WARM! You want to look cute, but you also don’t want to freeze! There’s nothing wrong with wearing fleece-lined tights under your pants or using layers to create cozy photos. A sweater, a scarf and a classy winter coat make for incredible images in the snow and will be sure to keep you from shivering all day.

Why the Time of Day Matters

This is where the guidance of a professional photographer comes in especially handy. Snow can be blinding during the middle of a sunny day but really sparkles near sunset. While the weather is colder at that time, it’s definitely worth it for the images you can get. Talk to your photographer about the best time of day for your session and prepare for the temperature accordingly.

Pick a Gorgeous Location

Is there a place in your area that looks stunning in winter? Why not take your engagement photos there? Woods look lovely with snow hanging on the trees, and if you live near mountains, the snow hangs around longer at those higher altitudes. If you’re taking your photos around the holidays, consider a city location where you can capture the lights on the buildings for a beautiful backdrop.

Take Plenty of Breaks

Taking photos in the snow can be fun, but it can also be exhausting. You may feel hot in your warm clothes and need a moment to relax in between shots. Don’t be afraid to let your photographer know when you need to take a break or even go inside and warm up, if possible. And consider grabbing some coffee or hot cocoa to help keep you energized throughout your engagement session.

Take Advantage of Fewer Crowds

Winter is a time when most people stay inside, especially if it’s snowy, so it’s your perfect opportunity to get photos in places you love that are usually busy or crowded. If you live in a city, this opens up more options for beautiful scenery without worrying about other people getting in the way.

Have Fun and Be Playful

The best snow engagement photos are the ones of you and your partner snuggling up or even tossing snowballs at each other. Don’t be afraid to get silly and have a little fun! Your photos should capture what makes your relationship special and show off the joy you feel together. What better way to do that than pelting each other with snow?

Final Thoughts 

In conclusion, if you are considering the Poconos for your winter engagement photos, go for it! The scenery is beautiful, the snow is amazing, and there are plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to keep you busy. You won't be disappointed.
