It may be chilly outside, but now’s the perfect time for a beautiful outdoor photoshoot. A wintertime photoshoot is a great way to celebrate a winter wedding, commemorate a new year’s engagement, or create memories with your partner this Valentine’s Day. The specific conditions of winter means that your photoshoot will require some special preparation this time of year. Here are a few ways that you can prepare for the perfect wintertime photo session.
This might seem like a no-brainer, but many people show up to outdoor winter photoshoots without adequate clothing to keep them warm! Photo shoots can often be lengthy, and it’s important that you be as comfortable as possible during the session. Bring a coat, scarf, hat, gloves and sweater along with you to keep yourself warm—you can take them off during the photoshoot if you want, but it’s important to stay comfortable while the photographer sets up! Staying bundled up will also help your hair and makeup stay in place in the cold temperatures and harsh winds of winter.
Timing is Everything
The sun sets much earlier in the winter, so it’s important to take advantage of all the daylight you can. Natural light creates a beautiful atmosphere that’s also very flattering so it’s a good idea to get your wintertime outdoor photoshoot as early as possible. Factor in some time to prepare before meeting your photographer when you’re scheduling your photo session.
A winter photoshoot is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and beat off the winter blues. A professional photo session is also great for commemorating winter weddings, engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, or any other momentous occasion.
