Choose the Right Clothing for your Winter Engagement Photos

I bet if you live in Winnipeg… you are pretty used to the idea of bundling up in winter, right? One of the best ways to do this is to dress in layers – starting with a great thermal base. As you brainstorm what you’ll wear to your session, don’t forget to include your favourite stylish accessories like scarves, toques and mitts.

Good boots and warm socks are non-negotiable! Keep those tootsies snug as we explore the outdoor location together. Bring an extra pair of shoes/boots to change into after your session incase your feet get wet. Pro tip: Add in some hand & toe warmers into your pockets or boots for extra warmth. 

Another way to keep warm during your session is to bring along your favourite hot drink to keep you warm from the inside out. You can also consider making a pitstop at your favourite local café for an extra treat before or after your session to warm up too! 

The Best Time of Day for Winter Engagement Photos 

Let’s plan your session for the early afternoon when temperatures are likely to be at their highest. The soft winter sunlight can create a magical ambiance for your photos. In winter, I’ll typically recommend we arrange our session anytime between 10am and 2pm. Engagement sessions are about an hour in length so we have enough time to bounce around to a few nearby spots and create beautiful variety in your photos.

Flexibility for Outdoor Winter Photos is Key!

Winter weather can be unpredictable and your comfort is always my priority! Remember that rescheduling due to extreme cold is always an option. We want your experience to be enjoyable, not frosty! Typically, I’ll suggest we reschedule anytime the temperatures start dipping around or below -25ish with a windchill. 

And hey – if winter isn’t your thing, I hear ya! Come check out this summer beach session if you’re looking for some inspiration that’s a bit warmer! See it here: Patricia Beach Engagement Session.
