September 08, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Picnic basket? Check.

Picnic blanket? Got it.

Picnic food items? Maybe a charcuterie board, a bottle of wine… Okay.

Perfect location? An outdoor space, maybe even the back yard… Done.

Great time of day? Golden hour, of course. Check.

Professional photographer? Yes!

If you are looking for a fun outdoor photo session, consider putting together a beautiful picnic setup! Whether it’s board games with your best friend or a birthday party with family members or a romantic engagement photoshoot, picnic pictures are a lot of fun and a great option to celebrate a warm weather time of year.

Bring along a professional photographer! Who will you bring? Is it a romantic picnic for two? Picnics are also a fantastic way to celebrate with your best girls - maybe for a bridal or baby shower or your next birthday? Maybe you want a family picnic picture, with group shots and individuals to update everyone's social media. 

What will you wear? If you're going for a romantic vibe, consider a fun dress and fairy lights. Birthday or other gathering with friends? Consider vibrant colors. The bright colors help build the idea that you are having the best time ever! For family pix, build a palette around your favorite color or colors (or the colors in the room where you'll be hanging your wall art, for best results). 

What's your ideal picnic spot? The picnic area of a local park can work well, or maybe an open space at some other beautiful location - maybe overlooking a creek - or an open field with a
mountain view? 

Think this is only for personal pictures? Think again! Are you a baker or caterer... or a foodie? A great way to showcase what you do is with a great picnic photoshoot, capturing your food creations from different angles as people have a good time. 

A little creativity can go a long way to turn this cute photoshoot idea into a great idea - with professional photos to commemorate the occasion. Let's plan it out together!
