When one plans a winter wedding in Minnesota, one usually expects to deal with the threat of snow and perhaps a blizzard. One does not expect to deal with rain, and certainly not rain that turns into 100% ice the morning of your wedding.

I bet you $1000 that Sierra and Beau did not anticipate snow on their October wedding when they started their wedding planning.

The first significant snowfall of the season has fallen. It’s sparkly. It’s pretty. And it also means cold weather is officially here!

Because we Minnesotans know that this is only the beginning of winter, I think it’s time to talk about how to stay warm at and during outdoor winter photography sessions.
