Oh, Baby it’s Cold Outside… Winter Wedding Engagement Photography

Winter Engagement Photos

Boise wedding photographers never know quite what to expect when a couple chooses to do their engagement session in subzero weather…. well not quite.  When the weather man says 12 degrees with a breeze and feels like 8, his report is correct.  Attire must include, long johns, leggin’s, wool jackets, scarves, hats, anything to keep warm.   As the photographer I was able to bundle up, (except I can’t push small camera buttons with thick gloves) but my clients did take a few warm breaks in downtown Boise.  This recent inclement weather gave this Boise wedding photographer a chance to see how future wedding couple handle flexibility, red noses, and patience levels. Building bonds through adverse conditions like war buddies.

Renata and Michael’s  photo’s were especially fun to photograph.  They choose a vintage engagement look, 30’s and 40’s period clothing and old Boise providing the backdrop for the engagement session.  A cafe downtown Boise provided a place to warmup in between locations.  We traveled up to the Boise Train Depot and the engagement couple brought their antique suitcase and a love banner.   Both props provided a quaint look to their engagement photo.

Another fun place to take winter wedding engagement photos is at our local resort Bogus Basin or travel just a bit to the east to Idaho City.  The sun shines brighter above Boise and it’s a lot warmer.

If your wedding is fast approaching, winter wedding engagement photos are perfect for your save the date cards.  Brave the cold, have fun with it, and bring a thermos of hot cocoa!

Wedding Photographer First Look

Wedding Photographer Sets Up First Look

… an alternative for bride and grooms who’s time will be cut short by the church or limited time between the ceremony and the reception.  As a wedding photographer I personally feel  “first looks” give the couple a chance to enjoy a moment of peace before the hectic day and demands on their personal time together.

An excellent read by Lauren Grove’s, Every Last Detail – Insight for Brides, on the subject can be found in her article {Thursday Tips} Consider A First Look.  “A First Look isn’t for everyone, and it’s not the “traditional” thing to do. But if photography is important to you, then you should seriously consider a First Look. Some of the absolute best wedding photos I have seen have been when the bride and groom have a First Look.”  Read the rest of the article here.

Lauren and Sean opted for “First Look” photos.  How could a photographer capture emotions like this during the ceremony?
