My job as a wedding photographer often requires me to take untraditional or... Ugly locations and turn them into photos that are wonderful.
When talking to couples about where to have their engagement photos it's natural that you would want to pick the prettiest most lush and scenic place you can think of. And whenever I have the chance to shoot places like the IMA or Butlers Holcomb Gardens I'll take it but as a wedding photographer you need to be able to think on your toes because some times you show up to a location and it's not the location of your dreams. This photo was in the back ally of an industrial park on the west side of Indy in Speedway with garbage cans behind us. If you look up in the top left corner of the building... Well let's just say I don't think that repair would be up to construction or building codes. But you still need to be able to get photos you will both, be happy with, and be happy to deliver to the couple.
