I am very honest with my couples – while I may not love winter, I adore winter weddings. They are cozy and toasty. There are shimmering metallics in nearly every color scheme (which is my favorite accent for pretty much everything). The bride is wrapped with a shawl of wool or even fur – it is beautiful.

Do not be afraid to have a winter wedding. Simply make your wedding party aware of their responsibilities which can include standing out in the bitter cold for photos. Your guests will appreciate a good hot chocolate or s’mores bar as well as the standard wedding fare.

Bring spare shoes – even winter boots if you wish to venture into the snow. If not, don’t worry – Karin and I happily will stand in a snowbank for a great photo. It is our pleasure. I usually bring the fuzziest, comfiest pair of winter boots for outdoor shooting. The hardest part is begrudgingly taking them off for the rehearsal in order to look professional again.

The main concern with winter weddings are a shorter time range for available outdoor light. If your venue is in an urban area with gorgeous lights, many streetlights to dot the sky, or more – this is not an issue. If not, contact me to help come up with a fantastic timeline that will make use of all available light.

    Wow you photograph weddings so beautifully! I especially loved your use of light in the last outside shot with the bride and groom. This was an informative post and I’m sure many couples considering having their weddings in the winter can learn a lot from it 🙂
