Fall is such a picturesque season for weddings, with its vibrant colors and crisp air. But as we approach the end of daylight savings time, capturing those moments can get a bit trickier. The sun dips sooner, but that doesn't mean your wedding photos have to suffer. I'm here to share some tips and tricks to make sure your wedding day is beautifully documented, from daylight to starlight.
Adjust Your Timeline with Grace
When the clocks fall back, it's essential to adjust your wedding timeline. To make the most of the daylight, consider moving your ceremony a bit earlier. This way, you can enjoy the sunlight while saying your "I do's" and still have time for beautiful outdoor photos afterward.
Make the Most of Daylight Hours
Prioritize outdoor shots while the sun is still up. After the ceremony, gather your loved ones for group photos and couple portraits. The soft, warm glow of late afternoon light will add a romantic touch to your photos.
Ask the Right Questions
Your wedding photographer is your creative partner, and it's crucial to ensure they're skilled at capturing the magic of nighttime photos. Ask about their experience with low-light photography and request to see samples from weddings shot in similar lighting conditions.
Prepare for Nighttime Magic
As the day turns into night, embrace the enchantment of evening photos. Lighting plays a significant role in these shots, so consult with your photographer on the type of lighting they'll use. Fairy lights, candles, and lanterns can create a romantic atmosphere. If you're lucky, you might even capture the beauty of the night sky. Starlit photos can be utterly romantic. Work with your photographer to create a magical setup and let the stars be your backdrop.
Stay Warm and Cozy
Fall evenings can get chilly, so plan accordingly. Provide warm blankets or shawls for guests, and consider cozy fire pits or outdoor heaters to keep everyone comfortable.
