I’m just editing three December weddings, winter wedding photography. OK, it is cold and windy and it gets dark very early but you can still have some amazing wedding images. I’ve heard that this weekend is going to be very cold, we might even get snow. Just imagine those amazing white weddings, hopefully some of the couples getting married this weekend will have it. In every season you get some amazing wedding photo opportunities and I would love to photograph a white winter wedding.

If you are planning to get married in November, December, January or February, you have to be very careful when choosing your wedding photographer. Not every photographer handles the winter light very well and the risk of not receiving beautiful winter wedding images is quite high. Please make sure you discuss the available options with him. Many photographers prefer to use the available and natural light. Unfortunately in December it gets dark very early and very often photographers have to choose between the formal group pictures and the more artistic photos of the couple. That choice is very difficult and only has to be made when they find it really hard to operate the OCF. Ask them if they use the OCF – that will be a great way of checking if they know what they are doing. A bit cheeky, but you want to have some amazing wedding images, right?

If your photographer knows how to use the off camera flash, the schedule of your wedding day can be much more flexible and the images are more magical too. The first two pictures were taken around six o’clock when it was already dark outside. The last one was taken a bit earlier. There was no sun and everything around was grey – but thanks to the off camera flash we can see all the beautiful colors that were hidden.
