Will cold weather effect my wedding photos?

my date is set for the middle of winter. i'm not talking about rain or wet weather here, i'm talking about bitterly cold weather! will it effect my photos if we pose outdoors? like will my skin be all goosebumpy and ruin the photos, and does a cold expression come across on wedding photography??

In short yes but as always rain, hail or shine the trick is to get a couple/bridal party etc having as much fun as possible and then a lot of these concerns tend to take care of themselves. A warm wrap is a given and when I've photographed weddings in the snow before (ie: New Zealand, Thredo) Bel for example had a gorgeous white jacket with a wool lining and collar, it looked unreal and I'm told was super warm - most brides also changed their glamourous high heels for warmer shoes (even boots or gumboots) when we wandered around the snow for the pictorial shoot (remembering the boots/gumboots were hidden under the dress or shown off with great delight). Other tips:

  1. simply standing on the down wind/sheltered side of a building will avoid a lot of the chill
  2. I would encourage you to stagger your time/images outside by ducking out for 10-20 minutes here and there (ie: not being outside for an hour or more in one go and warming up inside before you do head out)
  3. cuddle your husband/bride even more
  4. any photographer who knows what they are doing will control the light so no one should look blue
  5. re goose bumps they never appear straight away I've found so I would start with the closer portraits first then if goose bumps do appear maybe look at capturing the more distant images, ie: panoramics, silhouettes etc
  6. lastly most if not all wedding venues are just as pretty inside as they are outside so when it gets too cold for you snap some photos using a stunning natural window light for example

Hope that helps. Remember rain, hail or shine there are amazing images to be had no matters what the conditions and/or location.

All the best, Dale & the DC Images team
