    12 wedding shots every bride wants (and how to get them)

    Setting the scene of the wedding is very important and a great way to start any album.

    These wedding shots of the venue were all taken without flash to keep the ambience of the room indoors and not required in such good conditions outside (which is a common mistake many make).

    Look around the venue for signature elements that portray the venue to its best potential.

    It may be worth asking the couple before the wedding what attracted them to this particular venue and keep this in mind when starting the story.
