Hey, how about a wedding in a botanical garden? Definitely my thing!
Couples often ask me about suggestions for a perfect location to take wedding portraits. If you ask me, wedding portraits time is one of the most important parts of your wedding day if you’re willing to spend it right – showing love, true emotions and sharing the joy with your beloved husband/wife. For all my couples, I always think it trough and ask them many questions to get a clearer image of what they like, what their style is and what suits their personalities.
If you’re just planning your wedding, here’s a few simple tips which will help you choose your own, dreamy location for wedding portraits:
1. THINK ABOUT A PLACE THAT HAS A SPECIAL MEANING TO YOU
For example, the place where you’ve met, the place that you’ve spent a lot of time with your loved one, or simply a place filled with beautiful memories (of course it should be near your wedding venue : ) )
2. TIMING OF YOUR PHOTO SESSION IS IMPORTANT
It’s important because of light conditions: you don’t want to spend a lot of time at 12:00 in a city, when the light is harsh and too strong for beautiful portraits, as well as you don’t want to miss the amazing sunset light and spend your time in the shadow.
3. TIME AVAILABLE
How far away can you drive to reach your perfect photo location and then how much time you have available to relax and take the portraits? This can either narrow or expand your location choice : )
4. RESEARCH WHAT’S AVAILABLE AROUND YOUR WEDDING LOCATION
Google is your friend, be prepared, take a look around beforehand, you could discover many great locations with a simple stroll around.
5. WHATEVER FITS YOUR SOUL
If you’re a more urban type, choose the city streets or endless rooftops and if you’re more romantic, nature type, even a simple field might work the best for you.
Hope you like posts like this one! I promise, I will try to post more tips from now on! If you have any questions drop me a message, I’d love to answer!
