We are an absolute sucker for that notorious golden hour. So much so that we’d rather take a 30-minute session in amazing light than an hour in ‘not so great light.’ Who wouldn’t? This day with our couple was spectacular right from the start – but as some weddings go, time can become a bit tight.
One thing that didn’t help the already short-time slot we had for the couple shoot was that we actually got a bit lost trying to navigate our way back out of a protected area of a tiny Italian city where the ceremony was held – which meant we got to the reception location a bit later than we had hoped. Needless to say, we were pretty stressed as we were losing sunlight with every minute, and we obviously didn’t want our couple to panic about where we were.
Fortunately, our couple was incredibly cool, and we took advantage of the last 30 minutes of light before it simply became a bit too dark to shoot. We didn’t venture too far from the reception location and did the most we could, and ended up having such a great time together.
