We just wrapped up an amazing outdoor engagement photo session Isaiah and Alyssa. They chose to take their engagement pics at their wedding venue, Capilla Del Rio.
Using your wedding venue for your engagement photo shoot can be a great idea because it allows you to preview the venue and get a feel for what it will be like on your wedding day.
Here are some things to think about when using your wedding venue for your engagement photo shoot:
- Check with the venue: Before scheduling your engagement photo shoot, it’s important to check with the venue to make sure that they allow photo shoots on their premises. Some venues may have restrictions or additional fees for photo shoots, so it’s important to be clear on what is allowed.
- Timing: If you’re planning on using your wedding venue for your engagement photo shoot, it’s a good idea to schedule the shoot at a time when the venue is not hosting other events; like a weekday. This will give you more freedom to move around and take photos without interruptions
- Visualize your wedding day: When taking photos at your wedding venue, it can be helpful to visualize how the space will look on your wedding day. This can help you and your photographer plan out specific shots and angles that will showcase the beauty of the space.
- Be creative: It’s important to get creative shots and try out different poses and angles with the wedding venue as your backdrop. This will help you get a variety of photos that capture the essence of your relationship as well as the beauty of the wedding venue.
Overall, using your wedding venue for your engagement photo shoot can be a great way to get a head start on planning for your big day. Just be sure to check with the wedding venue, schedule your shoot at a good time, and be creative in your pictures.
