Photo Shooting At A Farm? Consider Taking Photos Around These Elements

If you're a wedding photographer who lives and works in a rural area, you'll almost certainly get an opportunity to shoot a wedding at a farm. Farmland weddings are common, as they present numerous advantages for the happy couple — including the ability to save on the cost of the venue if a family member owns a farm. When you shoot at a farm, you'll have the fortune of being able to use a variety of the elements around the property to your advantage when it comes time to shoot the formal portraits of the happy couple. Here are some elements that you'll want to incorporate.

Hay Bales

Should the wedding occur late enough in the summer, hay bales will likely be a fixture across the farm's fields. Whether the farmer uses circular or square bales, you'll be able to visit the field with the happy couple and use the hay for a perfect backdrop. There are many different ways to incorporate the bales of hay in your images. You could have the bride and groom standing behind an enormous circular bale and peeking out at you, or you could have the pair sitting on a stack of square bales while the sun sets behind them.


A tractor can also be a perfect element to include in some of your wedding photos. This can be true whether you want to set your sights on a modern tractor that the farmer uses or perhaps a rusty one that sits somewhere but hasn't been touched in years. In the latter scenario, the contrast between the rugged look of the rusted tractor and the formal attire of your newly married couple can create visual interest. See about having the couple sit on the tractor or simply stand next to it. With a newer tractor, you can get as creative as the couple will allow.

Tire Swing

Not every farm has a tire swing, but if you're able to find one lazily hanging from an old tree, you've got a perfect opportunity for some memorable photos. One idea is to simply have the bride and groom play around the swing while you shoot photos. Instead of setting up a formal shot, you can snap candid images that may be better than anything you could formally set up. One person pushing the other, or perhaps leaning in for a kiss while one is sitting on the tire swing, can be perfect.
