It is no mystery that this time of year is in short supply of green trees. Fall has faded and the snow is setting in! We are getting ready for the holidays and buckling down for some chilly months! So finding places to shoot that still have the beauty of outdoor natural light and a beautiful backdrop can be a little tricky. ESPECIALLY when you consider that for most formal sessions, the snow and weather can be scary for a bridal dress!
So here is an option for brides and photographers alike to consider! Try shooting in a parking garage. Yes, you might think I am a little off my rocker because when you think of a beautiful bride you don’t think a parking garage is the most romantic of locations. But hang with me. This idea is not new, many photographer in the last few years have realized parking garages are beautiful natural reflectors, they can utilize the light being bounced by neutral concrete making flattering light for portraits, not to mention you can avoid muddy hem lines that you would get this time of year in a snow soaked field.
This beautiful styled shoot put together by my dear friend Brooke Bakken. She is the closest thing I have to a co-worker in this business of mine and I LOVE it! This urban parking garage shoot was fun, full of laughter and I think we had the best crew. Check out the credits below!
