Lighting is one of the most important elements to your wedding day photographs.
We encourage our clients to try and maximise photo time in the golden hour, the hour(ish) before sunset when the light looks most amazing.
You can calculate when golden hour is for your wedding day at this website: Golden Hour Calculator
Each season is so unique and beautiful.
When we have our consultation depending on what date you are getting married in we will review the sunset time for the day and I will make some recommendations for your ceremony time and time for your portrait session.
Summer weddings mean brighter sun during the middle of the day. It’s a great idea to have your ceremony later in the afternoon when the light isn’t so bright.
Ceremonies in bright midday sun can be extremely hot and uncomfortable also causing people to be squinting throughout your ceremony and portraits, so the later the better.
Winter weddings have beautiful soft light and incredible ethereal sunsets, however the daylight hours are shorter and the sunsets earlier.
Winter weddings usually have earlier ceremonies so that we have beautiful light available for our portrait session.
