Scout the Venue
Before the big day, scout the venue with your partner to pinpoint specific areas on the grounds in which you might want to be photographed. At Wayfarers Chapel, couples have two hours on the property on their wedding day, including the ceremony. Getting an in-depth look at the venue beforehand will save time for you and the photographer before he snaps each shot.

Choose a photographer whose style you admire and who is familiar with the venue. You’ll want to look back and absolutely love your wedding photos, so make sure you’ll still love their editing style and aesthetic for years to come. Wayfarers Chapel is a stunning, expansive venue, so picking one of our preferred photographers is recommended to best capture the right frames, lighting and locations.

Whether you shoot before or after the ceremony, you’ll be thinking about every wedding dynamic along with the wedding guests and members of the wedding party. Lose yourself in your partner, and forget about it all – it’s just you two! Being comfortable and just being in the moment will result in naturally beautiful images. Have fun with one another and kiss, laugh and enjoy this time away from the wedding day craziness!
