Hiring a fantastic photographer to capture your vision is imperative, but choosing a wedding venue with amazing photo locations should be a top priority as well.

Saphire Estate in Sharon Massachusetts encapsulates New England charm, and has unlimited gorgeous photo locations to tell your love story, but here are the top 9! From its exclusive lakeside beach and wooded paths overlooking Lake Massapoag, to the captivating estate grounds, this venue is the perfect backdrop to say “I do”.

1. The Wedding Suite

Saphire Estate’s chic wedding suite is the optimal space to capture photos of intimate moments with your loved ones, such as a family member zipping your dress, or a sentimental toast with your best friends. This is an excellent time for your photographer to take dreamy detail shots of your attire hanging in the window, or any flat lay photos of your invitations and accessories.

2. The Estate Grounds

The exterior of Saphire Estate is hands down one of the most iconic photo locations at this venue. In the daylight, vibrant florals and lush landscaping set the scene for stunning formals with your wedding party. Come nightfall, custom lighting illuminates the property to create a romantic ambiance for a dreamy nighttime photoshoot.

The lounge is an amazing place to relax before wedding-day festivities kick into full gear. This is a wonderful opportunity to snap photos of the groom reading a hand-written love letter from his fiancé, or hanging by the fireplace with his groomsmen before the big “I do”.

Between the cocktail lounge and main estate is a beautifully designed (and heated) path, which can be used for gorgeous photos whether it’s the perfect summer day or snowflakes are falling. Blooming flowers surround and set the stage for amazing wedding photos with your partner.

5. The Fountain

The lavish fountain at the front of the property is a romantic photo location you don’t want to miss. While the fountain is absolutely gorgeous both day and night, we love seeing couples utilize this photo location later in the evening because of the twinkling fairy lights strung amongst the trees.

6. The Wooded Paths

A walk through the property’s wooded path is a photo opportunity we highly recommend adding to your photography shot list. No matter the season, walking hand in hand with your partner while sunshine pours through the towering trees above makes for a whimsical, and dare we say, Bella and Edward photo moment.
