Photo Location Ideas in Fargo-Moorhead

Photo Location Ideas in Fargo-Moorhead

A list of some of my favorite locations for photo sessions! Do you need some inspiration?? If you’re recently engaged and looking for photo location ideas for your session in the Fargo-Moorhead area, browse the photos below!

While inspiration is helpful, it’s important to know that a location is small part of what makes a great photo. Light is always more important than the location and will change with time of day, season and weather. It’s amazing to me how I can shoot at the same locations all year and get totally different images! No matter what location we choose, I will always look for the light. If the light is better across the street from where we planned to shoot…we’ll probably move! If you’ve ever tried to duplicate a “Pinterest” image you’ll know that it’s impossible to create exact copies because there are a LOT of factors that make up a great photo. Along with lighting, your outfits, personality, the emotion of the moment, body language and composition all work together to create something magical and unique! My goal is to create something fresh and unique for each one of my clients.

As you browse these photos, ask yourself two questions: Do you prefer urban or nature settings? Do you love scenic backdrops or do you love a simple, white wall? You also want to consider how you’ll be using the photos. If they will hang in your home, perhaps there is a color scheme you want to follow. Or maybe you want the session to match the “feel” of your upcoming wedding! I’m always happy to provide tips and suggestions.

Hopefully this list will help you find the look you prefer!
