Tip 4: Work on the Wardrobe

This one, its best to reach out to your photographer. They know the lighting, the background and what colors are going to work best! If you already have formal outfits planned, say for an elopment or wedding photos, then you have done the tough work! For those who may be looking for family photos in Whistler, then your photographer is your best bet!

Tip 5: the Weather is in Charge

Want snowy photos in the village? that can happen, but remember that mother nature is in charge! Sometimes in the winter months in Whistler, the village stroll has enough salt on it that it is actually down to the pavement. This is so much easier for walking, but not for those photo vibes. Do not worry, there is not going to be any green grass in the winter months. Let your photographer be the creative eye and they will find you perfect snowy backdrops!

The same goes for summer photo shoots. While the weather is typically sunny and clear, moody skies can always move in!
