Top Wedding Scenery for the Best Timeless Photos
While these styles can be quite opposite, we feel brick creates both urban and rural vibes complimenting a city chic or rustic theme. Brick is a timeless backdrop that you’ll find in historical districts and downtown, urban venues.
Alleyways, industrial areas, and a barren town make for a trendy backdrop that may be filled with memories of you traveling through the area many, many times before. Just have someone on the lookout for oncoming traffic!
If you live in a larger city, an iconic skyline is easily recognizable for all to know what city matters most to you and your loved one or gives you a chance to honor the city you were married in. Ask your photographer or seek out rooftops that may give you a stellar view from above as well.
Trees and Greenery
A large grouping of trees or greenery can be one of the most timeless and easy-to-find backgrounds. These photos make for beautiful, peaceful displays in the home for years to come.
Clear blue skies or dramatic clouds give a grand, yet dreamy, backdrop. Finding an open field or elevated ground to let the sky shine can make for some of the most epic wedding photos.
Breathtaking Beach or Water
If you’re not landlocked, take advantage of the gorgeous imagery and reflections a lake or ocean provides. Riverfronts, piers, and beaches provide a calm, for the subject to shine.
