25 Snowy Engagement Photos to Inspire Your Own
Winter is one of the most romantic seasons. The days are filled with holiday cheer, the nights are filled with fireside chats, and the cold makes the time of year ideal for snuggling up with your partner. Add falling snowflakes into the mix, and—as cliché as it sounds—the world really does become a winter wonderland to many. If you and your spouse-to-be are enchanted by the wintertime, consider taking your engagement photos in the snow. While outdoor sessions might require some extra preparation (think: bundling up, avoiding major storms, and planning around the light) the final images will be absolutely worth it.
There are tons of ways to capture the snow while posing for your engagement photos. You can go out to a rural location and take snapshots in the fresh, untouched powder, or search for a venue surrounded by blanketed trees. For an urban session, look for snow-lined roads, snow-filled parks, or try to capture the flakes mid-descent—close-ups of them resting on your hair or clothes can be just as pretty as a scenic background.
