This is definitely a different style of guide from my normal girl’s guides but I think many of you that are newly engaged or planning your upcoming wedding, this engagement and wedding photo checklist that I have created could really come in handy. There’s so much planning that goes into a wedding and sometimes it’s just hard to think of all the little details like where to take the best photos. Here’s my list of all the best places to take wedding photos all over the city.
