Winter Engagement Sessions
Did you just get engaged? If so, Congratulations! Have you thought about your Engagement photos? WAIT! WHAT?!!
You might not have thought that far yet, or maybe you have, but you're thinking that it's cold and snowy out and the LAST thing you want is to spend time outdoors getting your pictures taken..
But why not? Do you live in the Heart of BOLD NORTH? Are you a Midwestern, and as a Midwestern, haven't we all learned to deal with our weather, from -10 to 96?
I'll admit, I LOVE Winter! Of course, why wouldn't I? Winter IS my last name. I was born during a snowstorm, and yes, so were my two kids. I love snowy activities; walking in the crisp air, building snowmen, making snow angels, and drinking hot cocoa by a fire.
If you're thinking about a Winter session, here are a few tips. First, dress warm. There really isn't anything overly cute about red, runny noses, or shivering teeth! Think layers, Hats for closer to the end of your session (we don't want to mess up you hair), ear muffs, scarves, cute mittens and gloves, and blankets! Coats should compliment each other, whether they are both sport like (think ski coats), casual (something you would wear to go to Target in) or dressy (a long winter coat that you would wear on a night out on a town).
Second, don't forget to keep your feet warm! There are so many stylish boots for both guys and gals that it should be easy to find something super for your engagement session.
Third, ask your photographer if there is a place to change. If so, great, plan to change! Do part of your session in fun casual clothes, both outwear and your coats, and the last part, in dressy outfits! It's a GREAT way to get several looks in a short time.
Fourth, have nice nails! This goes for both the ladies and the guys! If your photographer chooses to do ring shots that include your hands, you'll be glad you spent some time buffing your nails and getting a fresh coat of polish!
And finally, fifth, (because I think that's enough for now but if you want to read more, search my blogs for Engagement Sessions and you'll get more!) Think about props! The box your engagement ring came in, a sign with your wedding date, maybe even a souvenir from your first date!
