We asked Merseyside-based wedding photographer Kevin Brown how to make the most of a venue's indoor and outside spaces to create the most romantic couple shots.
How can we make the most of our venue’s indoor and outside spaces to create the most romantic couple shots?
There’s such a wide range of venues available for weddings in the region from castles to village halls, so there’s nearly always a great place to capture some romantic shots. We always do a thorough recce of the venue before the big day, especially if it’s one we haven’t worked at previously. We’re constantly on the lookout for the best light and backdrops. This creates a great opportunity for a pre-wedding shoot, which means you get to run through your day, and get used to being relaxed in front of the camera.
City and town venues often have lots of photo opportunities within a short walk, especially Liverpool.
If you’re concerned about your venue not being located in a scenic spot, sometimes simply shooting from a different angle means an unsightly background can be avoided. There are usually plenty of doorways, alcoves, brick or stone walls and other little gems if you look hard enough.
