Outdoor vs. studio portraits is often the first thing one considers when you first decide you want a professional portrait experience.
You know you want something luxurious and unique, but can’t decide if you want studio portraits for an editorial look vs outdoor portraits for a “relaxed” look… or something on-location at your favorite venue.
So, I’ve put together a list of pros vs. cons of both outdoor and studio portraits, so you can pick which works better for your personal style and preferences.
Visit the portfolio for a wide variety of both outdoor portraits and studio portraits!

Not affected by weather (rain, high temperatures, wind, cold, etc.)
More time to change outfits
Can be more classic and timeless, portraits will not age as fast
More flexibility of style & wardrobe – can merge many different looks
Looks more “editorial”
Backdrops/sets are limited to location
People assume they are “stuffy” (not necessarily so 😉 )
Can have a more “lifestyle” feel
Great to create albums with a storytelling feel
Perfect for brands with retail location and showcasing ambiance
Appeals to a certain aesthetic
Gen Z may prefer more of an “influencer” look
Outdoors can be very uncomfortable in inclement weather
Venues can be very limiting to only one “look”
Becomes out-dated very quickly
Can look too trendy and not as classic
Although perceived as “more relaxed”, an outdoor session may be more stressful than studio
Which one is for you? Do you have a preference or love both?
