Here, I’d like to deliver my thoughts and opinions of holding a wedding shoot in winter. Wedding shoots are one of the most important part of your special occasion. Each season describes a different beauty. None is better than the other, yet, one must have strike you more memorable than the others. It’s true though, that Winter poses a very unique charm. Winter is identical to freezing cold temperature, loneliness and snow. And these aspects are what that emphasizes the warmth, togetherness and love of a couple in a photoshoot. Not to mention landscapes change as lake freezes over and snow covered most or all of the land increase the beauty of winter.

Throughout the four seasons of wedding photoshoot done by the female wedding photographer 3 of them may not have a big change of outfit: a good pair of shiny shoes, elegant suit and a butterfly tie or neck tie. But for the female wedding photoshoot, there will be differences on her attire. Attires, jackets or cardigans with fur materials are very favorable in the photoshoots. The variety is limitless; you can wear it or just drape it casually across your shoulder. You can also wear a cape for a more fantasy themed photoshoot.
Another unique characteristic of winter is, especially when it’s snowing or after a heavy snow, the background color turns white and whatever color you wear will be heavily emphasized. Imagine a female wedding photoshoot with the bride standing in the middle carrying a bouquet of red-blooded roses. A beautiful, daring and memorable photo from your female wedding photographer is the result. Take advantage of the snow. An occasion that happens only in one of the season where small speck of ice falls at an interval and randomness enter the frame.
Being quite a different theme to the usual spring and summer condition, winter is unique and don’t be restricted to the usual; opt for the unusual. Having a female wedding photographer is probably even a better idea.
I’d like to add a little tip to the photoshoots.
- Just like other seasons, decide on your theme. It is imperative to consider the snow as they are very light-reflective material.
- As I mentioned before, the white landscape (if you’re shooting out in the snow) will emphasize any color very deep. Unless you love white theme, wearing a vivid color dress, suit, accessories or make up like blue or purple will brighten the photo very much.
- Don’t worry if it doesn’t snow! You can emphasize the winter yourself instead. Wear a warm fur jacket for both the bride and groom around greenery and you’ll feel the chilly wind even by looking at the pictures.
- It doesn’t always have to be snow, too. Indoor shoots look just as good when done right. Cold winter pushes people to warm up indoor with their loved ones. Maybe you can incorporate that idea into your photoshoot and put more variety into it.
- Female wedding photographer is not a bad choice; being a more sentimental creature compared to the opposite sex, she may found a more unique aspect of winter.
Winter photoshoot is pretty much the new trend with its unpredictable weather and landscape condition. In the end, both the bride and groom and the photographer have to make of the most of the unpredictable into the shoot to create breathtaking scenes that can never be repeated in another winter.
