I live in a small town and sometimes, I’m prone to think that it’s much easier to find picturesque backgrounds in big cities and/or urban areas (previously, I’ve lived in both types of places). But after shooting in this area a bit more, I’ve come to realize two things: (1) I absolutely love searching out new places to shoot and (2) I find the midwestern small town feel so charming.
And I think Pasquale and Chessie liked what we were able to find here too, even though they live in Boston and are having their wedding in Madison (see, big city / urban areas!). If I showed you some of the big scenes (the “whole picture”) where we shot a few of the following images, you’d probably be surprised. Great photo locations are all around you… it just takes some searching and a bit a creativity. More on that in another post. =)
A few of my favorite photos from their engagement session, shot here in Viroqua:
