Colder weather means more time for hot chocolate, fires and love. If you recently got engaged, the winter months are perfect for planning and taking your engagement photos. Most couples like to take these pictures when it’s warmer outside, but doing them near the holidays can make the pictures even more special.
Here are some tips on how to make your holiday engagement photos stand out from
1. Let the weather have a part in your photos
If it is supposed to be snowing on the weekend that you are planning on taking pictures, just roll with it.
It will add a romantic touch to the pictures. It's very helpful if your photographer is experienced and comfortable in shooting with all types of lighting. Make sure you speak with them beforehand to
discuss what weather scenarios you might come across and have a list full of ideas!
2. Add Your Furry Friend
If you happen to own a dog or cat, now is the time to use them. It’s always a cute idea to incorporate things you love, so why not your best friend?? We love the idea of having them pictured with a cute sign because chances are, it will include an even cuter story.
3. Pick warm colors and timeless pieces
When it comes to choosing outfits for your photos, make sure you are choosing
a palette that is warm and inviting. These photos are going to be with you for
life, so make sure that if you are styling your own wardrobe you choose timeless pieces that speak to your personality.
4. Be Creative
The use of props is a great
way to make your pictures
stand out from the crowd. Don’t be afraid to incorporate
sleds, signs, personal memorabilia, or items from hobbies that you both enjoy!

Even though you want to
have a few serious pictures, a handful of romantic pictures, and a few candid moments...
Don't forget to have fun!
Don’t be afraid to pick up
some snow and have an
impromptu snowball fight.
Unexpected moments can
make for the best photos.
