Plan Your Wedding Photography When the Light is Most Flattering.

Have you ever heard that photographers chase the light? It's true. The most flattering, warm, light is early in the morning from sunrise to about 10 am in the morning and after 3 pm in the afternoon to sunset. This is when the golden and pink light happens for magical photographs.  Below are several images from weddings which we had fantastic light because of the weather and the time of day in which the photos we're taken. First photograph was taken in the morning for the First Look; middle photograph at sunset; right photograph mid-afternoon about 3 pm.

I know brides and grooms have a lot to cover when planning your wedding. I understand and I'm here to help! Have a conversation about wedding photography with your photographer and learn from them when the best times are to take your beautiful pictures. Trust their expert advice. Ideally, if you can, please try not to have your wedding ceremony at noon. The light is harsh, intense, and can cast a lot of unflattering shadows. Your photographers will use fill flash and reflectors (when possible), however Mother Nature can be tricky.

I use a wide variety of lens; and, the best lens for wedding photography, in my humble opinion, are the 85m portrait lens, 24x70m great for portraits and group shots, 70 x 200m for shots taken in a church or further away, and the wide angle 16 x 35m. These are my favorites to catch every loving and fun moment! You never might catch a guest taking a picture at the wedding of you and the couple! Love this!!

Cutting the wedding cake

Create a tropical wedding paradise wherever you are!

Many of my clients love the idea of getting married somewhere in the tropics, but either time or budget makes it tricky. Why not create a Hawaiian, Caribbean, or Polynesian setting for your wedding anyway! You can rent palm trees, hand out leis, decorate the wedding cake with orchids, have Hawaiian dancers at your reception and more! Perfect destination wedding photography without having to travel too far. Aloha!
