We adore this winter wedding photoshoot! If you haven’t been convinced yet of the beauty that winter can bring to your wedding, then you need to check out this album. Photographer Diane Sage of Sage Studios Photography took advantage of all the winter wonders around her to create these images, using the gentle light from the sun and snow-dusted outdoors. A variety of people had to come together to make this possible, so find out more about the different elements of this shoot and each individual perspective. After this, we guarantee a winter wedding will be on your (weather) radar!
For the makeup, Katherine MacDonald from KMac Beauty kept it clean and crisp with an organic woodland look, so she kept the color palette on the neutral side. The colors used included: eggshell, a variety of browns, bronze, and then pink tones for the brides eyes. Her cheeks also have a pale pink to flush them a bit as if she was touched by the cool winter air. Her lips were kept soft using a bright and pale pink mixed together and then finished with a touch of pearl frost.
Mary Trombley of Lotus Floral Designs was responsible for the lovely flowers you see. She chose flowers that had colors and texture that reminded her of winter-soft whites, frosty silver, warm chocolate & rich Merlot (us, too). Winter greens and succulents created an organic look using different elements like the leather handle wrap and cotton branches. Mary also loved the idea of using peonies simply because they are a spring flower & are a promise of the future, like the vows between the bride and groom.
Last but certainly not least, Diane was the person who brought it all together for the frame. When discussing pulling this winter shoot together, she saw all the elements in her head and knew the look, feel, vibe and texture she wanted it to be. For Diane, this shoot delivered exactly how she saw it and so much more!
So on a cold day in January, with just a few days to pull it all together, here are the incredible results. Often times, winter weddings are discarded but we’re not sure why. Diane believes that the lighting at this time of the year is just stunning, and even if there was a light snowfall, it truly has a look like no other. Using only natural light and taking advantage of the soft sun, the model stayed warm with her chunky scarf, limited addition L.L. Bean White Bean boots, mittens, and boot socks. This shoot also has a bit of a vintage feel, which just adds that extra touch Diane loves so much.
We couldn’t agree more! We especially love the layers we get to add during these winter months that looks fantastic in photos. Stay tuned for more winter wedding inspiration to keep your heart warm when it’s cold outside!
