Missoula Engagement Photos: Winter Tips

The winter season is upon us! It makes for some magical photos! Without glittering white snow on the ground, you are still bound to get gorgeous images set in the Montana landscape. These tips will help you plan the perfect Missoula engagement photos this winter.

Location tips for Missoula engagement photos

You are likely to encounter snow for your Missoula engagement photos. Plus, there’s no need to trek out to a mountain to find it. Just head to your local park for a snowy setting!

However, if there isn’t snow on the ground by the time of your engagement session, you should still love your location choice. When you book your Missoula engagement photos with me, I’ll help you find the perfect spot based on your preferences (ex: downtown, grassy field, beach, etc.). Plus, an added bonus of getting your photos in the wintertime is fewer people at popular locations!

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if there’s snow on the ground or not. What matters is that we are able to capture the two of you in images you will enjoy for years to come. As long as there is good light, we are set to get great images!

Staying warm for winter photos

It’s uncomfortable if you aren’t prepared to be out in the cold. My goal for your portraits is to help you feel and look your best on camera. It begins with choosing the right outfits, that help you stay cozy for the photoshoot.

Although you will be bundling up for your engagement photos, you can still be stylish. I believe that the jackets you choose can change the feel of images. That’s why I recommend opting for a coat with a classic style, that is free of logos or graphics. Peacoats are perfect! Borrowing a coat from a friend is also a great idea when you don’t have a jacket you want to be photographed in.

Also, don’t forget to pack accessories that keep you warm—for example, gloves, a beanie, tights, thicker socks, or a scarf. Hand and foot warmers also come in handy!

The best colors to wear for winter engagement photos

Lighter neutral and pastel colors look stunning in a winter landscape. Additionally, colors like maroon, lavender, or emerald green can add a pop of color, especially when in the snow.
