landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

It’s still Winter; it’s still pretty cold.  And, although all of our six inches of snow from last week melted away because of our recent “heat wave” (it was 45, don’t worry), I know it’s still a bit colder and snowy-er (yes, technical term) up North.

Zeidler Photography, a St. Paul/Minneapolis photographer, recently blogged an engagement session she shot, with some of the images indoors and others out in the snow.  I couldn’t resist not sharing with you.  Many brides-to-be are none to thrilled to have a winter engagement session, but you can really have some fun with it.  I urge more couples to go the Winter route!

I appreciate that they used an older sled.  There are too many of those plastic ones out there (I know, you can go fast on them, I get it). Something about the vintage-y sled just gives those pictures character.

I LOVE hot chocolate, so of course I think those shots are adorable!
