Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

If I want beautiful photos, what is the best time for my wedding ceremony?

The most beautiful light for photography occurs in the last two hours before sunset. The last hour photographers refer to as THE GOLDEN HOUR.
As a guide for working out the best time for your ceremony I would say…
Look up the SUNSET TIME on the date you have chosen for your wedding – say it is 6.30 pm. Then SUBTRACT 2 HOURS = 4.30 pm ceremony time.
If we allow an hour for the ceremony and congratulations/group shots
We are now @ 5.30 pm. So then you have THE GOLDEN HOUR in which to shoot the Bride & Groom and or – the bridal party – and give yourself the best chance of getting THAT SPECIAL SHOT.

How many hours photo coverage do I need for my Wedding?

Wedding day photography bookings range from 1 – 12 hrs.
This will depend on a number of factors.
How much of your WEDDING DAY STORY you would like to be covered by a professional. How many guests you are inviting. How many group/family shots you plan for. Number of venues and how much travel time is involved.
