The photographer will not do all the work for you. Prepare for the photo session in advance. Plan routeso that on the day of the wedding he did not violate the schedule. Good lighting important. In nature, the light cannot be changed at will — you have to choose the time. To take a photo at sunset, you need to arrive at the shooting location just before sunset.
And most importantly: the photo conveys your most sincere emotions. Photoshop won’t fake happiness if you’re preoccupied with serving dessert at the time of the photo shoot.
Where to take a photo?
Popular places: hotel lobbies or anticafe. You agree on a lease, and regardless of the weather and season, you will have an expensive beautiful picture.
Parks and parks - a good option in the summer. Bright flowers, scattered rays of light and an abundance of greenery. By the way, there are stunning photographs in nature and in late autumn, contrary to stereotypes. This requires a competent photographer and warm clothes.
Less popular, but still in demand monuments and ancient cathedrals. It’s easy to fall into a trap here and make template wedding photos. Talk to the photographer, let him understand that you do not want bored angles.
Choose places where there are several locations for shooting at once. Take pictures in different scenes at neighboring sites. And you save time on travel.
How to choose suitable places?
Decide on a style. You can make beautiful reportage shots near city sights. For staged photos, it is better to find a quiet place where no one will stop you from freezing in front of the camera.
If you are planning a themed wedding, choose themed locations. For a wedding in style Rustic suitable forest or clearing. Go to the farmlands if you have a wedding Country. Photo session for nautical weddings can be held on the beach or on a yacht. Vintage a wedding is retro cars or a museum with rare exhibits.
For those who are not afraid of heights, we offer photography on the roof. The taller the building, the better the view. Go to the roof of your choice in advance and check how clean it is and how comfortable the lift is.
Advice from Chanfashion: do not get out on the roof in the sun. There will be nowhere to hide from the heat, and the photos will turn out to be too contrasty. The best time is a couple of hours before sunset!
A vintage and daring idea for wedding photography: an amusement park. Cotton candy, bright carousels, cheerful laughter and millions of light bulbs.

- Do not go far from the restaurant and the registry office. That way you won’t be late and you won’t be late for the ceremony.
