Let’s be real, all photographers have venues on our “dream” list. The Water Oasis was definitely one on my list and I got so excited when Bri and Ben inquired and shared that that was where they were planning on getting married. I’m not sure about other photographers, but I will not book anyone unless they have a new set because that is the first thing that you need to set a date. Something has to house this beautiful event.
It’s very important to know exactly why your clients picked that specific venue. We all see things differently, and value different aspects of each space. So I’m going to share today five different ways to utilize all aspects of a venue, while still keeping your clients preferences at the forefront.
Remember photographers, it’s your job to have a game plan of where portraits are going to be taking place. Always ask for input from your couple because it is their wedding day, and they picked the venue for a reason. Be sure to get to your venue early so you can scout it out to come up with a game plan so that way you can answer any questions as they come up. Remember to have a plan B just in case something does not go as planned. And just communicate, communicate, communicate what’s happening and it’s gonna make your life so much easier! Oh, and if the venue owner or coordinator wants to show you around, go with them because they may show you spaces you didn’t know about!
