Sacramento Art Galleries
“Art and love are the same thing:
It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.”
Art & Portraits
Incorporating art installations, paintings and photographs into your engagement, portrait or wedding images allows for unique and distinctive portraits. Art has its own presence and can easily overshadow a portrait. Balancing the genius of the artist or painter while defining people as subjects takes skill as a photographer. While photography is not allowed at all museums and galleries, there are a few in the Sacramento area that allow wedding portraits.
The Crocker Art Museum
An amazing place to have your wedding in Sacramento is the Crocker Art Museum located near downtown at 216 O Street, Sacramento, CA 95814. The art museum has four distinct event areas that can handle any size wedding, small or large.
The museum is housed in a distinguished mansion that was built in 1868. The museum features local and international artworks in a building which is a combination of vintage and modern architecture. As Sacramento’s most exclusive museum, the Crocker has the most extensive collection of California art.
As your photographer, we are allowed to photography in any part of the museum which is included in your wedding day contract. This includes some of the galleries which display some amazing artwork. For your guests, the location offers indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy as well as a large ballroom with amazing architecture for your ceremony. The deep wood used in much of the museum lends itself especially well to some very dramatic photographs, while some of the more open walls and spaces can work nicely in fun imagery of your wedding party.
For your reception, the museum’s courtyard is spacious and can easily handle a large number of guests. The wonderful architecture makes a spectacular backdrop for your wedding day photographs. As photographers, we really enjoy all of the different romantic ways we can use the unique architecture and available light in our wedding pictures.
