The time of day will affect your lighting, as well as the traffic of your chosen spot. The time of year will affect the accessibility and look of your setting. It all depends on what you prefer.
- Your outfits should complement your location. If you plan on wearing a more formal outfit, then a formal location would probably be most fitting. Think of the most elegant and stunning location near you, and then decide if our formal attire will complement it.
