Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

To choose a wedding location

Category: Photography | Wedding

The summer reached our country. The sun is high up in the sky and that is really nice if you are getting married today. But how difficult is it to choose a wedding venue? Because when you select a venue months before your wedding day you have no idea what it is going to look like on your special day. Do you want to get married in a castle, a mansion or at the beach?

Every location has it's pros and cons so it is good to think about what you wish your wedding day to look like. Especially when photography is important to you it is good to look at a venue from a photography perspective.

So what to consider:

How many people are you inviting for your wedding? Ceremony sites are usually very small. With a lot of people in a tight space you limit the options for the photographer. We photograph with two photographers to reduce this problem but it is alway good to take it into account when selecting your venue.

Look at the light. Especially in castles and mansions the windows are small and high and as a result not a lot of light is getting in creating a difficult situation for the photographer, shadows and backlight. When you want to limit flashlight a light room with natural light has a lot of advantages.

You want to get married outside? An outside wedding during the summer? Consider the timing of the ceremony. Usually wedding ceremonies are in the early afternoon when the sun is high in the sky with hard, direct, unflattering light that result in deep shadows. So consider to hold the ceremony in spot with open shade e.g. the shadow of a big tree, use a tent or a light arbor. If you do not have the option to change the ceremony sight you can always consider the time of the ceremony to late in the afternoon.
