Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
Sunset photos are in-demand by many brides and grooms. They will ask their photographer to get these shots during the reception.
By choosing to do sunset portraits, you will need to be willing to sneak away from your reception for a bit, but it’s a decision you won’t regret. Sunset photos may be among your favorites when you get your photo gallery.
One factor to realize is that sometimes sunset photos may not work for you. It may depend on where your reception is and whether there is a good spot to see the sunset. Sometimes I will be in downtown Lincoln and there are buildings blocking the view.
But if you are able to see the sunset, a good photographer will know when the time is right to get these photos. Once the sun starts to set, it sets quickly. It’s important for you to get outside in the nick of time. Build this time into your reception timeline so you don’t get distracted with something else.
Here’s a few things to keep in mind when you build this time into your reception.
I recommend that you schedule your evening portraits after you’ve had dinner because then you can leave your guests to dance and socialize while you have your photos taken.
Make sure that you mention any special night activities such as fireworks or a sparkler send-off to your photographer so that he/she can work these shots in. Also, if there are any other specific evening shots that you have in mind, discuss them with your wedding photographer before your big day.
