18 Adorable Ideas for Wintery Couple Photos in the Snow

Snow is in the air.

But so is love. 

Ok, yes, this time of year makes me all sappy, ok? It’s for good reason — my husband and I were married in December and I associate Christmastime with all things sparkly, warm, cozy, glittering with festive lights and a love that is ready for the new year — and beyond.

This year will be our 6th anniversary, which is at once crazy to me but at the same time, feels warm and right, like my favorite winter sweater.

Contrary to popular belief, I think winter is a very romantic time of year and those snowy backdrops are the perfect way to capture a couple’s love on camera. Click through for some festive ideas for wintery couples’ photos in the snow, perfect for engagements, cute couples, maternity or wedding shots!
