Outdoor pictures? How to get them if getting married in a hotel?

Outdoor pictures? How to get them if getting married in a hotel? Topic: How to make a bib
June 26, 2019 / By Findlay
Question: I think we have almost decided we will be married in a Hotel setting, but We live in Washington DC and I know we can get some nice outdoor shots. How can I get outdoor pictures when Ceremony and Reception will be in the same place? I dont want to take up too much time, though I am concerned about how the pictures will be if I dont at least get some outdoor shots.

Take your pictures before the wedding. When my sister got married, the photographer was able to capture everyone in the wedding party and the family while their clothes, hair and makeup were still fresh and everyone looked their best. He arranged for the moment when the groom saw his bride for the first time without having the church full of guests and got a great shot of the look of love on his face. After the chapel shots we went to a nearby park and took photos there (all of us bridesmaids carefully carried my sister's hem and train to make sure it didn't get dirty) and then went back to the church for a light snack before the ceremony (the photographer also got a fabulous shot of all of the ladies sitting in a circle eating fruit with sheets over us like big bibs, because the wedding planner didn't want any of us staining our dresses.)

Danny Originally Answered: How to add the light to the outdoor fountain?
Try painting it, or wrapping it in tape, the same colour as the fountain and fastening it close to the fountain, there are clips you can buy for cords, though i'm not sure if they will work in this case. You could even get artistic and make it look like a vine (you can disregard that). Unfortunatly I cannot think of anything else, but the first solution would at least make it less noticeable. Good luck!

Im not familiar with that area but I think you try to find a park or something nearby that would be good for pictures. You can have it set up where you have all the pictures of you and your wedding party (with your soon to be husband) done at a certain time before the ceremony and then have all the wedding party and him done at a certain time without you. You could get the majority of the pictures done then and then between the wedding and reception while everyone else is getting to the reception, if the place is close enough by you can just go get some of the two of you done and then make your way to the reception. Good luck and congrats!

Try to find a nice outdoor spot near the hotel that you can go to take pictures while the guests are having greeting eachother, having coffee, or taking pictures with other family. If thats not possible I know a lot of people who took engagment pictures in really nice formal wear. Even though you may not be wearing the wedding dress in the pic. you still have the formality of it. and you can still wear white.

with my brothers wedding (it was also ceremony and reception in the same place) they had some hors dourves (spelling?) set up and the wedding party went out for about an hour and took outdoor shots. you just have to occupy your guests for a bit so you guys can get away and get the pics you want! best wishes

a few different options. Someone suggested to us that we take pics before the ceremony. I hate breaking tradition, so we said no to this, plus too much to do. Next, go and take pics anyways. Take an hour or an hour and a half and go do it, hire some salsa dancers or something. Have some appetizers. (i wanted a nacho bar) The next option would be to get some engagement photos done. Your not in the dress, and he's not in a tux, but still nice. Good luck, congrats.

Orianne Originally Answered: I slipped while showering in the footbath, on holidays in Hawaii. Is the hotel legally liable?
I think that unless the footbath was slippery due to slime from not being cleaned properly(in which case why would you get in it?), or from being made from a material which is not approved for wet surfaces(which you would have to prove) that it is not the hotels fault at all and you should be happy if they will comp the rest of your stay.If the X-rays did not reveal a fracture suing will just take a lot of your time and effort and frustrate you. I hope you have insurance, that would be the best way to proceed. If you were drinking at all and you sue, the hotel may counter sue you for litigiousness. I fell in a gas station in America. They were laying tile behind a rack and I did not see it until I slipped in the adhesive that was very thick and slippery. I had witnesses, it was on camera, there were no signs warning about the work in progress or wet floors. I found out that if you are an immigrant business owner in the U.S.A that you are not required to carry liability insurance. Without liability insurance there is no one to sue. I have permanent leg pain and damage and outrageous hospital bills and no recourse. If you have any visible signs of injury and want to sue you need to document them immediately! Take lots of pictures. Take pictures of the shower too. You might want to see if the hotel has any previous incidents of shower accidents, it may help if you can prove that other people have gotten hurt there before.
