Winter Wedding Photography in Saint John
Wedding Photography in any season can be magical, but there is something special about winter wedding photography that’s exciting. I love walking around uptown Saint John in December and seeing all the Christmas lights that line the streets, listening to the Christmas music playing in the shops. It’s also nice to have the extra decorations around many of the locations within the city, which can make for some lovely backdrops.
I’m not a huge fan of the cold weather, as it can be hard on my fingers, but the end results are always worth it. I had the pleasure to do winter wedding photography this December with a wonderful couple. Matt and Rachel were a real joy to work with. Every aspect of their wedding was very well organized right down to the finest detail.
Winter weddings allow you to add a few extra touches to your wedding day that may not work in other seasons. Weddings can be very creative and original. Rachel took full advantage of this a she prepared for her day. She looked stunning in her gown, gloves, and shawl. :)
If you are planning a winter wedding be sure to find a skilled wedding photographer who has the gear that will withstand the cold conditions winter will throw at them. This would not a be a great time for a camera to freeze up or have their batteries drained from the cold. If you prefer outside pictures, the loss of day light and chill in the air means you need a wedding photographer who is able to work fast, be organized, and do a good job. If your wedding is later in the day and there is no daylight left, it’s a great opportunity to get some great shots with Christmas lights. Make sure your photographer knows how to work under these conditions.
Most people never consider a winter wedding…but there are lots of reasons to think about it! Winter has a beauty all it’s own. It’s unique…how many of your friends got married in the winter? Venues and vendors are not as booked this time of year, so it cam make your planning process a lot easier. Whatever the season, make sure you enjoy your wedding planning… it passes by in the blink of an eye.
Give me a call if you are planning your wedding, winter or summer, and I’d be happy to discuss some of the things you need to think about regarding your wedding photography plans in the Saint John area.
I’d love to be there to capture all your winter wedding memories. :)
Please enjoy a little peek into this wonderful winter wedding.
