When it comes to finding a time for the couple shoot, one thing that we always try and ask our couples to do is to plan it so it happens as last in the day as possible. This not only means that we have a higher chance of working with gorgeous light, but it also allows our couple the time to spend with their friends and family after the ceremony.
What we found works really well is to try and plan it to start one hour before the dinner. While we’re out shooting with the couple, the guests can already be seated and the best part? They can be encouraged to all welcome & cheer the couple as they return from the shooting!
It makes for an amazing entrance shot to have the couple walk in amongst the cheering crowd; and even have the DJ / Musician throw on some awesome music to enhance the event.
