Not to Be Missed Photos at Your Vineyard Wedding Venue
One of the most cherished gifts you will receive following your wedding day are the many beautiful images shot of you, your guests, and your family. They are there to remind you of the sweet moments you and your spouse shared on your wedding day, reveal what your guests were up to while you weren’t looking, and acts as a keepsake for you to treasure and look back on as years pass. A vineyard wedding venue is one of the most abundant places for photo opportunities on your big day. Here are some shots you do not want your photographer to miss!
Vineyards: You are getting married in a vineyard wedding venue, and, of course, you will HAVE to get photos within the vineyards. No matter what time of the year you are getting married, they will provide a stunning and memorable photo backdrop. In the spring, you get bright green colors, new signs of life, and the vineyards are so fresh and vibrant. In summer months, the vines are fuller, with lots of green and some grapes starting to grow. In the fall months, you stunning shades of yellow, orange, and red hues will surround you. In winter, the vineyards are pruned back and dormant, but still provide a pretty photo opportunity, nonetheless.
Barrel Room: If the vineyard wedding venue you are getting married at is fortunate enough to have a photo-worthy barrel room, find out if you can take advantage of that by taking pictures inside! Each winery will have different rules regarding what is and what is not allowed within their barrel room, but the big wooden barrels stacked on top of one another create an amazing and unique photo backdrop.
Sunset “Golden Hour” Photos: “Golden Hour” in photography is a small window of time right before the suns sets when the lighting is perfect for photos. The sunlight is softer than throughout the day and allows for stunning images you will not want to miss! Take advantage of the beautiful outdoors and the vineyards to capture these one-of-a-kind photos together.
Detail photos: Your photographer will be able to take amazing detail shots. If you let them see your dress, rings, shoes, jewelry, etc., they will be able to take those personal items, and create works of art! Photographers have used wine bottles, corks, grapes, vineyards, and much more to enhance your detailed photo shots.
Cheers: While you can get “Cheers!” pictures anywhere, nothing beats clinking those glasses right where that wine you are sipping is made! Whether it is just you and your wedding party participating, or all your guests celebrating as the toasts conclude, this is a fun photo to plan for and include.
Your vineyard wedding venue will provide you with plentiful amounts of Instagram worthy pictures! We hope you can take advantage of them and love these amazing photo opportunities as much as we do!
