Evening Wedding Portraits
Evening portraits are becoming a popular request among couples who are planning their weddings. These shots have a completely different mood and give you something extra-special to remember your wedding by.
By choosing to do evening portraits, you will need to be willing to sneak away from your reception for a bit, but it’s a decision you won’t regret.
Whether you have a few creative images taken as you kiss at a window at your venue or admire the stars with a bonfire burning in the background, evening shots can add variety to your wedding album. And, they will give you the chance to share a special moment with your new spouse while everyone else is having a good time at your reception.
Planning for Evening Portraits
If you decide that evening portraits is something you want to do, you will need to adjust your timeline accordingly as many of these shots require special setups.
Getting the best evening shots all comes down to timing. While this is something our team will assist you with, there are a few things to take into consideration:
Make sure that your caterers know about your evening portraits so that they can feed you and your guests accordingly and not be surprised you are missing
Be sure to schedule a time that you can safely be away from your guests (such as general dancing)
Be sure to plan the photos with our team ahead of time if you want the best shots. To have quality evening portraits taken, we may need to arrange to have additional lighting in place and the setup will require time to do and test
Make sure that you mention any special night activities such as fireworks or a sparkler send-off to us so that we can work these shots in. It is critical your plans are discussed with us far in advance so we are prepared and have a worked them into our Timeline. You should also discuss your plans with the facilities coordinator. They just may have some great suggestions as to locations that have worked well in the past. You will be glad you did.
