There is a saying, "When life give you lemons, make lemonade." I have a similar saying when it comes to engagement shoots.  When life give you snow, have a snow engagement shoot. I do a lot of shooting through the popular seasons of spring, summer and fall and we all know their beauty.  But when it comes to photos, winter is such an under looked time of the year for photography-both weddings and engagement sessions.  The browns of November and December allow couples to stand out against the background making for such stunning portraits.  Likewise the snows of winter also allow the subjects to stand out against a neutral background of white as well as bringing the magical aspect of winter's snow upon the landscape. 

This winter quite a few couples requested snow engagements session.  I wait for a forecast of snow and then on short notice we head out when the weather conditions are the best for snow photos.  Such was the case for Michelle and Erik's engagement session at Southford Falls State Park.  The forecast was for a small amount of snow, with mild temperatures so we would be comfortable and low layer of clouds to keep the sun from melting the snow off the trees.  

When being outdoors in the snow and winter it is best to wear warm clothing including waterproof boots, jacket, gloves and a hat.  You want to be comfortable and warm during your engagement session.  

Michelle and Erik did a great job on their session and were so much fun to work with.  We had a great time and they received so many studding photos of their engagement session.  Below are some of their highlights.
