daylight and time for photoshoot

photography is painting with light
Light is the essence and life of a good photo and shoot times have been a bone of contetion between photographers and the bridal party since the inception of wedding photography. For various reasons (mainly because the photographer is out of the decision making loop at the time when time decisions are made) everybody else wants the ceremony to be later rather than sooner, leaving the photographer with little or sometimes no naturlal light to take quality (from a technical viewpoint) pictures. So photos are hastely taken in fast fading sunlight .

Sunlight is simply the best, for numerious reasons. But of course when left no option, photographers will use a flash which delivers better than no pictures at all. And yes, the golden hour does present a golden cast, which can produce breathtaking effects for variation, but when it's all you've got, you have no variation, so photographers like to get a couple of pictures in just before the golden sunset as well.

are you serious?
If you are serious about having the best pictures possible and are paying the photographer a ransom to ensure this, listen to his or her advice. I find the next best option (if time is limited) to take photo's of the couple before the ceremony (which does not always, understandably find favour with everyone)

best time
The best time allocated to photos on a normal unclouded day would be around the one and a half hour mark. Half hour for Family photos an a full hour with the bride and groom (before the sun goes down) And just in case you are not aware, the sun goes down sooner in winter.
