How to Pick the Ideal Location for Wedding Portrait Photography

Are you struggling to find the right portrait location for your wedding? If yes, then you are in luck. We will share with you three tips that will help you find the ideal place for your wedding.

1. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

So, it is prime portrait season, and you are trying to pick the perfect location, and you’re not sure where to even start. The first thing you really have to consider is, are you an introvert or an extrovert?

The biggest thing that we struggle with when we are picking a location is how crowded or populated that space is. It may be a prime portrait location that you really want to have. Still, it would make you feel uncomfortable in front of many people if you are an introvert versus an extrovert who couldn’t care less how crowded space is. They are going to rock their session no matter where you put them.

That is the biggest thing you have to decide before picking any location: Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Do you get timid around a lot of people? Or are you an extrovert? Do you rock it out? Are you the life of the party no matter where you go?

2. Is the location safe?

When you’re trying to pick the perfect location for your wedding photography, the next thing to consider is, is it safe?

We live in a metropolitan city, and what that means is that there may be a really cool location downtown. Still, it is not safe for you, especially as it gets darker later and later at night.

It’s one of those places you don’t want to be when the sun goes down. It’s something like Riddick, The Walking Dead, and your parents’ room all mashed into one.

3. Do you have access to the location?

The last thing that you have to consider, please don’t forget this, is, do you have access to the location that your photographer suggests you photograph in?

Often, photographers may say things like, oh, don’t worry, I already called, we’re good to go. When in reality, you have to have a permit and have paid to photograph there. Or, it’s private property, and you’re not allowed there at all.

Before ever going to the session, make sure that you can be photographed there, and if you don’t, go ahead and get a permit.

Don’t risk getting caught because nothing looks worse than being asked to leave a location because your photographer didn’t do the proper paperwork or pay for a permit.
