With engagement season in the PNW being in the coldest, wettest part of Winter, there are seemingly not that many awesome locations to have your engagement portraits, right? WRONG! Having a greenhouse engagement session is amazing. You stay dry, you stay warm, and there’s lots of light flooding the interior since the walls and ceiling are both clear/opaque. It makes for nice, beautiful, soft light.
With white walls all around you, light streaming from above and to your sides, greenery filling in the environment — and again, staying dry and warm the entire time — how could you really go wrong with choosing a gorgeous greenhouse for your session?
I am keeping the name of this particular greenhouse off of my blog so it doesn’t become super popular amongst the masses and lose it’s cozy charm. After all, that is exactly what makes this so special, in my eyes.
Have a look through this greenhouse engagement session for Emily + Eli, and let me know what you think. Better yet, let’s schedule your greenhouse engagement session – especially if you are planning your portraits to be in the rainy Western Washington months.
While there are some ways to shoot outdoors if it’s raining (and staying dry), but this is a sure way to do it. Other ways are the handy umbrella, under cover (bridges, tree canopies, awnings), and within structures (your own house, greenhouses, coffee shops, etc).
Personally, I always highly recommend places that are quite private. It’s always more comfortable & enjoyable.
