Creating Time for Sunset Photos
When I start creating a timeline for a wedding, the first thing I do is check the time of sunset. Here in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the sunset is often one of the most memorable moments of a wedding. A great wedding timeline factors in the time of sunset to ensure that the happy couple can enjoy some quiet time alone with their photographer. Some couples tell me that they just want to enjoy time with their guests and start dancing, but when I show them these photos, they change their minds. Taking photos earlier in the day definitely has it's advantages, but nothing beats the golden light of a Rocky Mountain sunset. When planning your big day, be sure to build in some time for sunset photos. Don't be afraid to disappear. It's your day. You will treasure these photos for the rest of your lives!
