FAVORITE WEDDING VENUE LIST FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN BROOKLYN
A Comprehensive Wedding Venue list of NYCouture Bridal Photography’s Favorite Brooklyn NY Wedding Venues
I want to begin by stating that NYCouture Bridal Photography is fully insured and ready to provide a loss payee certificate from our insurance company immediately upon booking us, with the wedding venue listed as the loss payee. The majority of wedding venues worldwide require wedding vendors including photographers to be fully insured. We are insured up to $2 million dollars, which far exceeds the requirements of even the most exclusive wedding venue in the world.
Although I will try to list every wedding venue where we have photographed weddings, names change, places close and some we might have overlooked. This list will also include wedding venues that I am looking forward to photographing a wedding. There are times where, I offer an incentive to photography a wedding simply because a wedding will be hosted at a wedding venue, I am eager to photograph a wedding in. I too enjoy the ambiance and beauty of unique wedding venues in New York City.
