Here are images from M&S’s winter engagement photo session at Wintergreen Resort and Bold Rock Cider outside Charlottesville, VA. The couple had their heart set on snowy winter engagement photos, but what happens when there’s no snow for the engagement session? Easy! You head to the nearest ski resort and make your own winter wonderland.
It’s always tricky to merge winter engagement photo ideas with the realities of real life schedules. But when when you try to factor in a weather component as well, you just gotta cross your fingers and hope for the best. To hedge our bets, we decided on some Wintergreen engagement photos just in case we got hit with a no snow heat streak in the beginning of February. And the decision paid off when we were treated to an otherwise beautiful, cloudless day with temps in the 50sºF.
M&S brought cozy blankets and we found numerous little nooks in the woods for portraits and snuggling.
With our woodsy engagement photos checked off, we hopped in the car and headed to Bold Rock Cider just a couple miles away. One of the most picturesque cideries in VA, Bold Rock offers a warm, inviting setting that is perfect for photos. Bonus: we had the place to ourselves! Beginning on the fire pit terrace, we eventually meandered down to the Rockfish River for some final images at sunset.
Winter engagement photos in Virginia can be tricky on account of the uncertain snow predictions. But with a little planning and some crossed fingers, S&M treated themselves to some beautiful photos at Wintergreen Resort and Bold Rock Cider.
