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 abit, but it’s a decision you won’t regret.
Whether you take a few moonlit photos in the gardens at your venue or admire the stars with a bonfire burning in the background, evening shots add variety to your wedding album and 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.
If you decide that evening portraits is something you want to do, you will need to adjust your timeline accordingly. Getting the best evening shots all comes down to timing. While this is something your photographer will assist you with, there are a few things to take into consideration:
Make sure that you mention any special night activities such as fireworks or a sparkler send-off to your photographer so that he/she can work these shots in. Also, if there are any specific evening shots that you have in mind, discuss them with your wedding photographer before your big day.
