Picture this, you’ve spent so much time picking the perfect makeup artist. You’ve spent days and weeks picking the perfect photographer. You’ve secured the venue you’ve been eyeing for years. And in your head it’s all about that moment when you walk down the aisle in your beautiful gown for the first time. You can’t wait to see the pictures, they are going to be stunning!
You get your photos back from your photographer after what seems like ions of waiting and as you scroll through the ceremony, you realize that you can barely see your face at all because the sun was so strong that day. So…so…sad.
But that’s why I am here to help you ensure that doesn’t happen. If you are an EN Bride then photography is one of the most important aspects of your day. You know that this is the most special moment of your life and you cherish the prints and albums you’ll keep as heirlooms for years to come.
Very early on in the planning process you will (and should) start thinking about your timeline. You’ll want to make sure your ceremony is about 2 hours before sunset when the sun will be much softer than midday. Typically for summer months this would be around 5pm and winter months this would be around 2pm. Since weddings almost always run late, usually the ceremony will start about 30 minutes later and that will give us much better light to get those beautiful photos of you and your grooms face.
With your ceremony lasting around 30 minutes, we should end just in time to be able to get you some beautiful sunset photos.
An easy tip for you brides that can be done very early on in the planning process to ensure your photography is exactly what you were looking for.
