diana.m.portelli:  Do you have a cute restaurant or wine bar you frequent? You could take some cute photos over a glass of wine.

Is your photographer local? He or she might have some good ideas, too.

If you’re willing to consider Manhattan, there’s Grand Central or the tunnels under Rockefeller Center that have some really cool architectural details.

Or, outside photos in the rain can be really memorable. Pretty umberella, rain boots, splashing in puddles…

No local suggestions but our rain back-up was a covered picnic area right next to our non-rain photo location. It was large enough to fit everyone and still have the photog far enough away to get the right shots. It was close to the parking lot, so people wouldn’t have far to go in the rain. And it was open sided, so we could still get the nature backgrounds I wanted. I also figured that we would do some shots in the rain or under umbrellas, and it would be an easy locaiton to run out and take some quick pictures and run back. I’m sure there are options like this at parks close to you.

diana.m.portelli:  I’m so sorry! I totally mis-read your question. I thought you were looking for options for engagement photos. (I’m planning for mine, so I’m totally tunnel-visioned right now.) Bascially – none of my suggestiosn make sense….so sorry!!!

diana.m.portelli:  I’m in the same boat… Jane’s Carousel is the only indoor option I’ve been able to come up with so far.  We’re also considering the church where we’re getting married, but not loving that option since guests could be arriving early and see us.  I’ll report back here if our photographer has any suggestions for us!
