As a photographer, one must scout locations before you can actually take a client there. I actually love doing this, but don’t get to do it very often. I make priority for weddings and photo shoots that are at new locations. Uncharted territory can be daunting at first. I start by looking for light, texture, angles, and my favorite…earthy objects, such as trees, water, rock, sand, wood.
I found this little horse hidden on the side of a very old historical building in Oak Park. I love old brick and this little guy was even more awesome because he was covered in vines!
My assistant photographer liked this path at Discovery Park in Sacramento as a possibility for family portraits, although she was getting a tad bored.
There’s something exciting about discovering new locations to take pretty photos! I like to take every client to a new location, it seems to keep things fresh and interesting. Have you found a place you love and want to take photos there? Let me know and I would be happy to explore that location with you!
