Best Places to Take Sunset Wedding Photos

Take Advantage of “The Golden Hour” 

If you’re wanting to capture that perfect sunset picture, you’ll want to check what time sunset is and make sure you’re on location and ready to shoot. Knowing the time of sunset will help with planning the time of the ceremony. It is important to schedule the ceremony so that it concludes with ample time before sunset. Consider how many family and wedding party photos you plan to take and give yourself enough time to get to your location in time to catch the magnificent colors. 

Choose The Best Sunset Locations

When choosing the best sunset shots, the camera will need to be pointed west. Preview the property and find areas where you'll be comfortable facing east. Silhouetted trees or other objects in the foreground give a sense of scale and location to the scene. Taking beautiful sunset photos can sometimes be challenging. Because of low light levels, shooting sunsets may require long exposure times, so be prepared to "hold it!" until the camera clicks. 

Discuss Sunset Effects With Your Photographer

To get those 'money shots', consider the use of special effects with your photographer. Some considerations include:
  1. Using off-camera flash for more portrait clarity. Since sunset portraits are always back-lit, a little fill flash will make all the difference between muddy and dark faces without the flash,.
  2. Using the camera's flash for increased portrait exposure and an overexposed background. This is on-trend for dramatic results. 
  3. Turning off the flash and shooting silhouettes. This will result in an abstract shape of your portrait in the foreground, and the sunset in the background.
  4. Using filters. A neutral density filter can be used to enhance colors.

San Diego Weddings Information

Quick Tips and Useful Information

Weddings at Twin Oaks offers help to plan and execute the perfect wedding reception.

We would be nothing if it weren’t for the great relationships we’ve forged with many of San Diego’s best event vendors. We’ve worked with each of these companies many times (and many other great companies not on that list) and can’t stress how important the venue and vendor selection process is.

Once you’ve found a Ceremony & Reception Venue in San Diego, the typical order of selecting vendors is as follows:

 

  • Wedding Planner, Wedding DJ, Photographer/Videographer
  • Dresses, Invitations, Flowers, Officiant
  • Photo Booth, Event Lighting, Party Rentals, Cake
  • Favors, Wedding Party Thank You Gifts, etc…

 

Obtaining your marriage license in San Diego County is pretty simple. All you have to do is bring your fiance to one of the San Diego County Clerk’s Offices and fill out some preliminary paperwork. You can download the standard marriage application HERE. Once your application is processed and approved, you will then bring that certificate to your wedding ceremony. Both of you, your wedding officiant, and witnesses can sign it after the conclusion of your wedding ceremony. Simply, return a copy to the City Clerk and your authorized copy will arrive back in a few weeks! Your San Diego Wedding experience will then be completed!
