Getting the Best Photography for Your Spring Wedding

04.02_Spring Wedding PhotographySpring is quickly becoming one of the most popular seasons for weddings, and with all the natural beauty around, the season of renewal and hope, there is no better time to tie the knot. If you are planning a spring wedding (for this year or for a future year), there are some tips you should know and some myths you should bust to choose the best Salt Lake wedding photographer to capture your special day.

Tip #1: Plan for Everything
Spring can be a beautiful time of year in Utah, but it can also be a pretty fickle time of year when it comes to the weather. Whether you get a gorgeous day or a snowstorm is often just a matter of chance, which is why it’s important that you have a contingency plan in place with your photographer from JayLynn Studios. The best photographers will be able to adapt to the changing situation and make the best of whatever happens weather-wise, but it’s always good to discuss alternatives in advance so you don’t have any extra stress on your wedding day.

Tip #2: Be Bold with Colors
One of the biggest myths about spring weddings is that you have to go with pastel colors. If pastels are your thing, spring is a great time to bring them out, but if you are not into those soft shades, it’s okay to be bold with other colors. Talk to your JayLynn Studios photographer about what colors you plan to use in your wedding—remember that it’s best to stick to just one or two main colors with a couple of accent colors—so they can plan to capture these vibrant shades in the best way in your photos. Your photographer can also plan appropriate props if they know what colors you’re using.

Tip #3: Incorporate Interesting Details Into Your Décor
Spring weddings don’t just have to be about flowers, and while you can coordinate with your photographer to get some beautiful floral shots, you can also talk to them about capturing some additional interesting décor. Find interesting architectural details in the building where you are having your wedding or reception, and combine some inside/outside shots for variety in all your wedding photographs.

Tip #4: Inside/Outside, Day/Night
Most people think that spring weddings must be done in the daytime, and should be done outside, but when it comes to planning for amazing wedding photography, it’s actually a good idea to have a mix of photographs. Perhaps your wedding ceremony will be during the day to capture some of the bright, vibrant colors of springtime, then you can have a nighttime reception with votive candles and soft lighting for a different look and feel in your pictures. Consider booking an indoor/outdoor venue that gives you and your guests several options for mingling, dancing, socializing, and taking pictures depending on what the weather is like that day.

Advance planning and ensuring that you have all the bases covered is essential for a successful spring wedding. Contact JayLynn Studios today to hire the best Salt Lake wedding photographer for your special springtime nuptials.
