Pick your backdrop is a lesson I stressed during my 10 day photography workshop bootcamp.
It goes far beyond picking your location. You can have the person stand in the same spot and get lots and lots of different backdrops by constantly changing your position and your lens.

In most of the pictures you can assume that just out of frame there was something that was distracting and that’s why i chose the angle and the framing that I chose.
Kudos to the bride that was so gung-ho about pictures she was willing to be places for pictures that made my job so much easier.
For instance down below the flower bed was not very large and her willingness to go up hill a little made my job much easier making the flower bed look much more full.
