Which Nebraska Wedding Photo Scenery Suits You?


When considering where to take your engagement photos in Nebraska, first look pictures, or where to stop your party bus on your wedding day for some photo ops, think ultimately about the final wedding photo results and what style suits you best as a couple. This will help narrow down the following list of Nebraska wedding photo scenery and guide your vision.

Wedding Photo Scenery for The Modern Couple

The modern couple is the one that wants to spin on the usual wedding party photos and engagement photos. The idea of photos in a field of flowers isn’t quite theirs. That’s why our photographers recommend these city chic areas in Kearney, Grand Island, and surrounding areas for inspiration.

Iconic Town Buildings

If you love Kearney, NE, one of the easiest ways to show that love is by showing parts of it in photos. This is a great photo op for a modern couple. But, you can definitely make it more romantic with what you wear.

Brick or Gravel Roads

Gravel and brick don’t exactly scream romantic. But there are ways to make it work for wedding photos. If you’re open to an industrial look, brick or empty gravel roads may just be perfect for your rural Nebraska wedding photos!

Streets of City Center

An increasingly popular setting for engagement photos has been in the wonderful streets of the city center, for example, the Bricks in downtown Kearney. It works really well for the modern couple who wants city chic photos. 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 times before.

Wedding Photo Scenery for The Timeless Couple

Timeless couples will usually stick to the classics. The classic scenery for any wedding or engagement photo session is mother nature. Their photos will be able to stand the test of time. That’s why these nature-inspired wedding photo scenery ideas will work best. Nature never ages and will always be relatable!

Mother Nature

The bright greenery that nature offers is unmatched. Also, depending on the season, photos in any landscape will help tie in that time of year. In spring, you’ll get different and stunning shades of flowers in your shots. In the summer, farmland or cornfields gives you a timeless Nebraska backdrop. In fall, you get to capture the fiery oranges and reds of leaves. Use it all to your advantage!


There’s something calming about water in photos. You’ll have room for different outdoor scenery here including by the lake, and even in the fields of trees or grass that come along with the lakes. They even make for great golden hour photos as the sun starts dipping over the water’s horizon.

Open Sky

Last but not least, open skies. Clear blue skies, dramatic clouds, or a sunset give a grand, dreamy backdrop. This one may require keeping an eye on the weather ahead of time, but it’s completely worth it once the photos come out.
