Wedding Photos in Winter

Delia and Edi had another winter photo session for their wedding

Wedding Photos in Winter – Chicago Area 

Edi and Delia  had already been married for a couple of weeks. They actually had their wedding during the winter and because it was one of the coldest winters Chicago has experienced in the last two years, they decided to postpone the photo shoot until it got a little warmer.

We decided to take some after wedding photos in winter around the Dundee area. In the photos, you can see some of the downtown Dundee locations as well as the Raceway Woods Forest Preserve. Delia wore her lovely long white wedding dress to the photo shoot. It came with a mini winter coat and she looked very sophisticated in it.

We walked around the West Dundee location and got some great little town shots of her standing by herself. Edi wore a deep blue suit with a traditional tie and we got some fun shots of Edi looking lovingly at his wife from the distance. There weren’t many people in the town itself, so we used this to our advantage and had the bride and groom walking together by themselves without any distractions from the crowd.

The couple brought along some cool props and in several photos they are holding up their very own picture frame. I especially like the photo where the couple is kissing in the frame as I think it captures their love perfectly. In other scenes, the couple brought along some nicely decorated cups to help keep warm and some funky sun glasses too!

The groom had a mini wardrobe change when we got to the Raceway Woods Forest Preserve for our after wedding photos in winter photo session. He took off his tie and jacket and put on a cardigan sweater to stay warm. The woods add a special element of romance and we got a couple of great shots of the couple holding each other on a bench as well as on a fallen tree. Along the way we saw some horses and stopped to take advantage of the beautiful scenery.
