Location Scout: Bryan Johnson, photographer at A Bryan Photo
Travel tidbit: I live in Birmingham, Alabama, but I shoot 90% of my weddings out of state.
Insider tip: I love staying in AirBNB's! Here's a recent one I stayed in while traveling to Los Angeles for a shoot. You can get a better price and actually stay in a neighborhood if you don't want to feel like a tourist. Often the owners give you some great suggestions on food and entertainment that make you feel like a local.
Most memorable experience: One of my favorite wedding shoots was in Norway a few years ago (above). It was the middle of winter and the ceremony took place in the small town of Notodden. The intimate ceremony was followed by a reception in a chalet in the mountains. The evening was highlighted by toasts, skits, and dancing. Very different from anything I have ever photographed in the States!
