The most popular time for engagement photography, by far, is the summer. While it should come as no surprise, living in Barrie and Orillia we are known for our snowy winters and therefore I love people who are willing to embrace the cold!
There are many reasons to have a winter engagement session. Firstly, when placed side-by-side in an album the winter engagement pics will contrast with your sunny summer wedding pics. This helps tell a story with a longer duration. Secondly, there are activities you can do in the winter which are not possible in the summer. Engagement sessions at the Santa Clause Parade, snowshoeing through the forest or sipping hot coco after a day of skiing simply cannot happen at any other time of year. Finally, outdoor winter engagement sessions have the advantage of unparalleled beauty when the snow is softly sticking to the branches of trees. The Tiffin Centre in Barrie is a perfect engagement picture location in Simcoe County for this exact reason. The dense foliage makes it harder for the snow to slip off the trees and results in a longer period of this naturally beautiful backdrop.
