Do you ever scroll through Instagram or Pinterest and see all of these super cute posed snow day photos and get inspired and in the mood for a winter wonderland? Because I know I do! Now that a lot of my blogging work requires time on Instagram, I wanted to take some cute snow day photos myself and go on little snow day adventures around my state for the perfect snowy photos! It made for super fun date days for my boyfriend and I as well which was a total bonus. Because snow day photos for the gram and Pinterest are so popular, I wanted to share some of my favorite locations to go to in Washington in the winter time to capture the perfect snow day photos!
Winter Photoshoot Location #1: Gold Creek Pond Trail
Gold Creek Pond Trail was honestly my favorite snow day photoshoot location this winter! The place is absolutely GORGEOUS, I seriously did not want to leave because of the amazing nature views. It is located right by Snoqualmie Pass Ski Resort and is a short loop trail around the “pond”. This is actually a perfect place to do a short hike as well if you’re not super into hiking but want to get outside for an easy hike/snowy winter walk (and take pictures!)
I packed a backpack full of a couple of different outfits for this one because I knew I wanted so many pictures with the best backgrounds from the view of the entire pond and mountains in the back. This winter was the first time I had been to Gold Creek Pond and it did NOT disappoint, I actually think it’s 100x better in the winter than any other season because of all the snow, it seriously made the trail that much more breathtaking!
Winter Photoshoot Location #2: Stevens Pass Ski Resort/Snoqualmie Pass Ski Resort
Both the popular ski resorts, Snoqualmie and Stevens, are other perfect places for snow day photos as well! This year I went to Stevens Pass and it was so much fun because it was actually snowing huge flakes when I was there and I loved it! It added a nice little something extra to the photos and was so fun! I found a little area by some trees near the ski resort that were the perfect places to snap some photos for the gram.
Winter Photoshoot Location #3: Leavenworth
Leavenworth is another perfect place to take winter (and especially Christmas) photos in such a perfect little German town Christmas setting. While there wasn’t too much snow on the ground at the time we went, the snow on the mountains in the background was SO pretty.
Thank you for reading and I hope this post was helpful and gave you some inspiration for your next snow day photo shoot in Washington!
