Updated: Jul 1

With over 20+ years of experience and a love for her clients, Boutique Wedding Photographer, Rosina DiBello, has gained a vast amount of knowledge of how a wedding day should go!

Because there are many factors that play into a successful wedding, Rosina has gathered several topics, tips and suggestions for brides everywhere, from her perspective as a Woman and a Pro Photographer.

How To Successfully Schedule Your Wedding Around Sunset

When I meet with brides they express how romantic it would to get married as the sun is setting. With my many years of experience I am able to make recommendations to these couples regarding sunset scheduling.

Important Things to consider:

How long is the ceremony?

How large is the family? (this will determine how long family formals will take).

Are you willing to get married 1 hour prior to sunset?

If your professional photographer is familiar with off camera lighting, then getting married at sunset and having the family formals after should not be a problem.

The lighting is still very beautiful 1 hour prior to sunset. This is a typical scenerio:

(Sunset 6 pm) In this scenerio everything is on the same property.

(no driving time included in this scenerio)

2:30 pm - 4:30 pm - getting ready, brides portrait with her bridal party,

groom's portrait with the groomsmen

4:30 pm - 5pm ceremony

5 pm - 6 pm family formals, bridal party,

bride and groom photo's (during cocktail hour)

6-10 pm - reception coverage.

This will enable you to get great lighting for every aspect of your wedding day...
