When it comes to pulling off the perfect wedding, it’s the fine details and thoughtful planning that take the (metaphorical) cake. Every major part of your big day is made possible by the individual decisions you make to bring the different components of your celebration to life—and your wedding photos are one of the most important ones!
After you’ve found the right photographer to capture the special moments of your wedding, you’ll need to choose the right location for your portraits.
Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind as you decide on a wedding photo location:
Consider the commute.
Your wedding day schedule is probably going to be jam packed as it is. You don’t want to have to worry about traffic or transportation time on top of everything else! Choose a location that’s in the vicinity of your ceremony or reception. This way, you’ll have enough time to actually enjoy the experience and get all the shots you want without feeling rushed.
Your photo location should reflect your relationship, personalities, and the theme of your wedding.
If your going vintage for the venue, décor, and dress, wedding photos with a modern architecture backdrop don’t make sense. Make sure your location is cohesive with the style of your wedding and, more importantly, meaningful to you and your partner.
Go somewhere that’s important to the two of you or where you reached a relationship milestone. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
Be careful with public spots.
While you may be tempted to get a threshold shot in front of that massive skyscraper downtown, think carefully about the challenges you may face logistically. Do your research beforehand to make sure any public location you’re interested in can accommodate your party and give you ample opportunity to capture quality photos. Try to avoid super crowded areas where your photos may be interrupted or delayed.
