Great Points to Choose Virginia Beach for Wedding Pictures

Published by at 7:51 am under General

Weddings are too special to leave the photography in the hands of amateurs. It is worth the extra expense for this once in a lifetime special day. Some prefer to have the posed couple, wedding party, family, and extended family pictures taken indoors where weather doesn’t matter. Others choose natural beauty as their backdrop.

If you are in the latter group and are marrying in the Virginia Beach area, you could not have more variety to choose from. Just about any scene you could imagine is available in Virginia Beach for your wedding picture background.

Of course, with the ocean comes lighthouses, twelve in this area. Many of these make a pristine scene behind the couple. For example, the Cape Henry Lighthouse was originally built in 1792 but replaced in 1881 due to structural problems. Nevertheless, both are still standing at the corner of bay and ocean, awaiting their photograph behind the happy couple.

Two extensive bays intersect the city, Lynnhaven Bay and Lake Smith reservoir, leaving miles of waterfront property and many beautiful homes hidden off dead end roads. Some of these homeowners are flattered when asked if a couple’s wedding pictures could be taken in their yard.

Virginia Beach also has a number of beautiful city parks. They are well kept and the natural setting may be just what a couple is looking for as a background. If your wedding is in the early spring, the dazzling beauty of the flowering fruit trees at Brookdale Farm, matching the chosen colors of the wedding might cause wedding magazines to come begging for copies of your pictures.

Those wanting to include the historicity of Virginia Beach with their wedding theme might consider places such as Lynnhaven House, built in 1725 by Francis Thelaball II. Today it looks much the same as when it was first made, and even has people posing in period costumes. On the beach, the Old Coast Guard Station, a 100 year-old building stands, also offering a unique flavor to the wedding pictures.

These ideas are only to get your imagination working; it is certainly not a complete list. Perhaps they encourage you to think beyond the safe weather locations indoors to include Virginia Beach itself in the record of your special day.

Applying these principles will have your wedding pictures be unforgettable. Ready to take action? Consider the services of Expressions Photography, an experienced Virginia Photographer. See their website portfolio for results.
