As engagement season begins to slow down, many of you are sporting a sparkly new ring on your left hand, and that’s so exciting! If you’re newly engaged, it’s likely that you have started to think about wedding planning. One of the very first things many couples pick out for their wedding day is their venue, and for good reason - many wedding venues book up over a year in advance!
As you start to consider where your wedding is going to take place, it’s important to realize that the look and feel of your entire wedding is going to be set by your wedding venue, which includes your wedding photos! Try to think through what kind of wedding photos you’ve been attracted to in the past. Do you love big, sweeping shots in the countryside? Are you more into urban portraits that show off the city you call home? Have you always imagined a ballroom for your first dance photos? These questions are important, because they will help you choose a wedding venue that is right for you as a couple.
Yes, you have the option to travel to multiple locations for portraits on your wedding day, but if you choose a wedding venue that has the look you want for portraits, you will get to spend more time taking photos, less time driving all over the city, and have a generally more relaxed wedding day.
So whether you’re choosing a Southern plantation, or a modern art museum, just remember that if you choose a venue that you love for all of your photos, you will ultimately have a more cohesive wedding gallery!
