Filed in : Image Stories

Some wedding venues seem like they were built just for taking amazing wedding photos – lush gardens, sweeping landscapes, elegant architecture, maybe even a fountain thrown in for good measure.  Other venues, like churches, not so much.  It’s not that they aren’t sometimes beautiful.  It’s just that wedding photography probably isn’t in the forefront of […]
