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.

Before you book your snowy session, look to some of our favorites for inspiration. These real couples took the winter weather in stride, and showcased their love as well as the season. Whether they ventured out into the wilderness for a stunning backdrop, or posed at home in their city's streets, their albums are worth imitating. Whatever the case, after viewing these sweet images, you'll be dreaming of a white engagement.
