What to Wear for Your Winter Engagement Session in Toledo
Winter is on the way and we want you to be prepared with what to wear for your winter engagement session in Toledo! Whether you’re braving the cold for the entire session or popping inside and then outside, you want some options!
Really, truly think about your coat. You want to wear a coat that you don’t mind being in photos. Some couples’ are so surprised when we want to photograph them in coats, but then say they’re too cold without them! We don’t want to solely photograph you in your coat, of course, but it can be a different element similar to an outfit change or a cute photo to capture when you’re holding hands and walking away from the camera. Think about your outfit as a whole and how it will photograph.
Sweaters, vests, boots, cute hats, mittens, and tons of layers are what I always recommend to couples that get stuck with what to wear for their session. We want to showcase and embrace the winter season we are in and not have you out of place in a sleeveless dress freezing your ass off! It just doesn’t make sense! Even if the weather is warmer and there isn’t snow, we are going to have bare trees and you will be able to tell that it’s winter in Ohio.
Think deeper colors that remind you of winter time. Plums, reds, and navy (really any jewel-toned color) are always great options! White is always a classic option that looks beautiful in the snow.
What are some no’s when it comes to winter engagement photos?: Tennis shoes, lots of bold patterns, graphic print t-shirts, out of season clothes such as summer colors, and clothing that has a disconnect when paired with the other person’s clothes.
We hope this blog serves as a great guide for putting your winter engagement session outfit together!
