How to pick your Winter Wedding Photographer

Wedding Photography Wedding Tips

Winter Wedding Photographer

Most winter weddings feature some of my most favourite things. Roaring fires, hot cups of cocoa, warm hearty food, lots of twinkly lights and nice smelling candles are just some of them. It’s probably fair to say that the number of winter weddings is on the up which is good news for me! There are many bargains to be had so it’s not difficult to see why. Many suppliers – like venues and this Winter Wedding Photographer – are happy to offer extra discounts for what they consider their off season. Even though the days are shorter your winter wedding pictures can definitely still look amazing!

What can I expect from  my Winter Wedding Photographer

Your winter wedding photographer should discuss your timeline with you and manage your expectations correctly. If you opt for a late ceremony but would like your group photos shot outside you’re probably asking for Mission Impossible. You might also miss out on some gorgeous sunset light as that will disappear fast while you’re both getting ready indoors. The earlier your the ceremony can be on your Winter Wedding Day the better. But if it is not possible to bring the time of your ceremony forward to 14:00-14:30hrs latest then maybe a First Look could be an option for you. This would enable your Winter Wedding Photographer to take some natural looking portraits before your ceremony.

Embrace Dark & Moody Winter Wedding Photographs

The lack of natural light will probably mean that your winter wedding photographs will be creative and darker. Which isn’t a bad thing at all in my books! If you’re anywhere near a city then a walk to the local Christmas market can be a fun way to spend some quality time with your bridesmaids and groomsmen. And don’t let a bit of rain or snow put you off! Simply prepare by having some cute umbrellas at hand and some warm shawls or jackets to wrap around you.

Book an experienced Winter Wedding Photographer!

Knowing how to incorporate natural and fake (flashed) light into their photography is a vital skill for a Winter Wedding Photographer. Some of the more creative shots could take some time to set up and may require some additional bits of kit that some photographer may not really feel confident about. Also bear in mind that some spontaneity might be lost during winter weddings as some of the shots might require a bit of setting up. And even though your photographer might hold a flash – it might not necessarily be set up for the shot you would like them to take instantly. They may just be in the middle of setting up for another important element of your day (like your epic First Dance, for instance).
