The Secret to Beautiful Indoor Wedding Photos

We’ve all seen those insanely gorgeous, incredibly expansive wedding photos of a couple in a wedding chapel or in a field with the wind blowing through the bride’s dress. But how do photographers get those shots? Well, it’s all about planning!

Whether or not you’re planning on having any part of your wedding inside, it is vital to plan out what photos you want and where. Have a plan of must-have photos to give to your photographer so you can be on the same page. Look for venues that have a lot of natural light. Natural light allows for bright, airy images and more natural skin tones. Make sure to check out the colors of the ceiling, walls, and floors. Light, neutral colors help reflect pretty light, whereas dark ceilings or vibrant colored walls could reflect unflattering light. Look for venues with large windows that let lots of light in so your pictures turn out great.

By giving your photographer a list of must-haves, they can do the necessary prep work beforehand. The best photographers do a simple location scout before the wedding so they know what the light will look like during the time of your wedding and so they know where the best angles are.

Having a space with beautiful interiors will make for a really dynamic image and will essentially do a lot of the décor for you! Use the space for the structure and get imaginative with your ceremony space. It’s a great chance to bring the outdoors in- with beautiful blooms, greens, and any imagery you like. A gorgeous altar will not only set a tone for the ceremony but will hopefully serve as a good setting for several photo opportunities.
