edmonton wedding photography. styled winter bridals with colleen and perry. part one. / by Cheryl Lukasewich

If you know me you know that I am IN LOVE with photographing weddings. Love, romance, glances and squeezes - memories being made. I love it so much. Winters are often a bit of a slower season for photographers which can leave me ITCHING to shoot anything bridal. So, when Colleen and Perry got back into their bridal attire for an awesome Rock The Dress/Styled bridal session with me and I could not have been happier. Winter weddings present such a cool opportunity to style your dress in unique ways - there is NO reason to suffer through outdoor shots absolutely frozen! I suggested that Colleen bring along a few cozy options and she rocked them all. Check out the first of 3 bundled-up looks I captured with this beautiful couple below! 2015-03-11_0001.jpg 2015-03-11_0002.jpg 2015-03-11_0003.jpg 2015-03-11_0004.jpg 2015-03-11_0005.jpg 2015-03-11_0006.jpg 2015-03-11_0007.jpg 2015-03-11_0008.jpg 2015-03-11_0009.jpg 2015-03-11_0010.jpg 2015-03-11_0011.jpg 2015-03-11_0012.jpg 2015-03-11_0013.jpg

General tips for dressing for a winter wedding:

1. Leggings, leggings, leggings. 2. Bring warm, cozy boots. 3. Consider ways to keep your top half warm - Colored cardigans, fitted leather jackets, uber-warm infinity scarves, cute mittens.... So many winter brides style their dresses with a white shawl or petticoat but I highly recommend picking a color that will pop against the snow. 4. Accessorize! Some of the splendor of your dress may get covered up when you add on the warmth so consider adding jewelry that really stands out! Chunky bracelets or bangles, or a statement necklace or earrings can really elevate your images to amazing heights!
