Hey brides! Something I always encourage my couples to do is sunset portraits. This is because the light is always SO dreamy and amazing. It’s something you cannot get at any other part of the day!
So when exactly is sunset time, or “golden hour”? Typically it’s between an hour and a half to thirty minutes before the sun sets. This is the PERFECT time to take portraits! However, with a typical wedding timeline, portrait time is not at sunset (it’s normally midday or early afternoon). But, there’s still a way to capture the dreamy portraits that golden hour provides!
The way to do this is to sneak out during your reception for some extra portraits. You can typically accomplish these in 10-15 minutes, so it doesn’t take long at all! It all depends on how your timeline is set up, but typically this happens at the end of dinner or after your other reception events are finished. No one will even notice you are gone for 10 minutes! :)
So if you do decide to do this, what kind of portraits will you get?! Probably something like these… (and I’d say they’re pretty gorgeous :))
