Tips for Taking Wedding Photos in the Snow?

Here is my best advice on how to keep a wedding dress clean and dry when taking photographs in snowy conditions. Assuming the air is below freezing the trick we've used successfully in the past is to let the dress cool down to air temperature before exposing it directly to falling snow. If done correctly snow will not melt when it hits the dress as the dress will be the same temperature as the surround air. If you're very careful you can also place the dress down onto "Fresh" snow as well. The real trick comes when you're preparing to go back inside, be sure to brush and shake all the snow off of the dress otherwise the snowflakes will melt when exposed to the warmer inside air.
