As any Sydney wedding photographer will tell you the best light to shoot in is during Golden Hour! So when and what is golden hour. Golden hour is the hour before sunset where the sun is starting to set and the sky’s colours are rapidly changing making for spectacular colour and vibrancy in photos.
As the sun sets the light gets softer and creates a more flattering look for skin tones as the light is less direct. However during the mayhem of organising a busy wedding day timeline these important details can often be the last thing on our mind, the sun does set quiet late during the summer months and the wedding reception needs to get underway. This is where your choice in venue comes into play. If you have a location wedding which has access to beautiful gardens, vast open countryside, a cityscape or is on the water you can make the time to duck outside for ten to fifteen minutes with your photographer to take some breath taking sunset wedding photos.
Shooting during sunset produces its own set of challenges for photographers as you light is starting to fade. To overcome these issues they may need to introduce another light source to help balance the bright sky and dark subject if this the look they are going for. So what I recommend is having a good look through your wedding photographers portfolio for sunset and night images as these can be some of the most technically challenging photos to capture. If you see some consistency in their portfolio there’s a good chance they understand light and their camera well enough to create something amazing images on your wedding day.
