We've already shared some of our best tips for choosing what to wear to your engagement session HERE, but options change from season to season!
When it comes to your winter engagement photos in Boise, there's no need to sacrifice style for warmth! We compiled our best winter engagement session tips and did a little research for you to include some links to looks we love!
No matter the season, wearing multiple layers gives depth to your outfits. Winter engagement sessions are perfect for taking advantage of multiple layers! For guys, that means you could wear a stylish sweater or vest under a suave jacket or suit coat. Ladies, this is the perfect time to grab a blazer or stylish coat to wear for some photos, then take it off for a few to add variety to your look!
We always recommend bringing a coat to your winter session, even if you aren't planning to wear it for photos. When moving between locations or photo spots, you'll have a chance to slip it on and warm up! We also love when couples purchase or wear a statement coat for their winter engagement photos! Choosing something stylish and slimming that you'd wear again on a date night!
Avoid bulky winter accessories. Instead of knit scarves or chunky boots, try a neutral cashmere scarf or tailored boots. In general, look for well-fitting accessories that complement your features instead of change their shape.
In general, we recommend wearing one WOW outfit and a second outfit you'd feel amazing wearing on a date! By starting the session with the warmer of your two outfits, you'll have a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera before braving the cold for some amazing images in your favorite dress!
We couldn't just share some tips without sharing some inspiration!
Look for dresses with sleeves like one of these! Skipping the slit means you could still wear warm leggings underneath. When choosing a dark neutral like black, have your parter wear something lighter in color.
Sweater dresses like this one can be a warmer option, but look best paired with tailored accessories and when they still show off your features!
A statement coat is perfect for warmer looks:
Try pairing dark fitted jeans or dress pants with dress shoes. Layering button down shirts, sweaters, stylish winter coats, and/or scarves like these makes a great winter look...
Wedding photography is my heartbeat. For me, it holds the perfect tension between creativity and authenticity, observation and connection. In front of my camera clients transform to friends, and behind it you'll usually find me tearing up, cheering you on, or holding my breath because of the raw goodness of the moment at hand.Get in Touch
