If you’ve ever had to do a pre wedding photoshoot in the dead of winter, you know how difficult it can be. The sun is almost completely covered up by overcast skies that turn everything white. And as if this wasn’t enough, the temperatures are starting to drop.
But don't despair! There are ways to make the most of a winter pre wedding photoshoot. First, try to find a location with some interesting architecture or natural features. This will give your photos some much-needed contrast. Second, use the low light to your advantage.
Shoot during the golden hour, or try using a long exposure to capture the ethereal quality of the winter landscape.
Finally, don't forget to dress for the occasion. A warm coat, hat, and scarf will not only keep you comfortable, but they'll also add some visual interest to your photos.
Fashion Photographers across the world have been getting together and bringing out the backgrounds and props they have on hand. This type of shoot is called a “winter scene” photoshoot because it usually takes place during this time of year.
The models are usually dressed in layers and come with a small bag of accessories, so you don’t have to bring your own props or backdrops. You can also find many photographers who will rent out backgrounds and props specifically for these shoots. So even if you’ve got nothing to wear or a white Christmas far away, give one of these photo shoots a go!
Show your snow skills!
One of the best things about winter photoshoots is that you get to show off your snow skills! You don’t have to be a professional snowboarder to do this shoot, either. There are plenty of ways to go about this.
One way to show off your snow skills is to find a location that has a lot of snow. This could be a park or even your backyard. Once you have found a location, set up your camera so that it is pointing at the snow. If you have a tripod, this will make things easier.

You can either rent out a snowboarding or snowmobiling track and shoot some photos along the way. Or, you can bring your own boards and snowshoes and shoot some wintery skydiving photos. If you’re really on the ball, you could also check into snowboarding and snowmobiling school to take your skills to the next level.
Either way, you’ll need to be careful when you’re out on the slopes because you don’t want to end up buried under a lot of snow!
Go against the grain with a black background
This is the first way to go with a black background. There are a few reasons for this. First, it will help to keep the light from getting confused. This will help to create a more peaceful and serene atmosphere, which will boost the quality of the photos. Secondly, a black background will absorb more light, which will make the photos look darker.
For a moody snowy scene, bring out the reds
If you’re looking to bring out the Red in you, a red background is the way to go. While a black background will help to keep the light from getting confused, a red one will reflect more of the light, thus making the photo look more intense. Red is also known to indicate danger, which will give your photos a colder and edgier feel.
A white Christmas with just a few winter accessories
If you’re after a more geodesic or minimalistic look, a white Christmas with just a few winter accessories will do the job. You can bring out the Queen in any of us with this one! Whether it’s a watch, scarf or mittens, put them all on and you’ll look like you’ve stepped straight out of the pages of an advertising campaign for a luxury brand.
The winter photoshoot might be over for the season, but don’t lose the inspiration. Use the photos from December as a reference for the new year and bring out the Queen in yourself once again. You’ve been so patient while we’ve been waiting for these images to come out, so go show the world how much fashion loves snow!
