You have your dress! It’s been altered and fits like a glove! Now it’s time to choose a location for your bridal session. Usually your venue will let you use their location free of charge (definitely confirm this with them, but that’s usually the case), so that’s always a great option! If you want something different that your venue, I’ve listed some of my favorite locations below that I highly recommend to help you out! Good lighting is so important for photos and the locations below have great light and photograph beautifully! Have an idea or location already in mind? You’re definitely not limited to this list! Let me know your ideas and we can bounce some ideas around and talk about the options!
