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.

Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, evening patio with market lightsLights – Part 2

Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time for outside weddings! With the right lights and ambiance you can turn any patio into your perfect dream wedding. Here are some of our favorite outdoor looks.

 

 

 

Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, String lights

Market lights are back and in popular demand. Many venues like Twin Oaks Golf Course already have market lights set up, giving our patio a classic nostalgic touch to allow for an intimate evening. If your selected venue does not have market lights there are many local listings that will go to your venue and take care of the set-up and take-down. Use String lights as a great alternative to decorate walls, ivy, bushes and trees to give your wedding that extra little dazzle that makes for beautiful romantic pictures.

Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, market lights with lanterns

 

Chandeliers and lanterns – no longer reserved for inside only. Chandeliers are being used outside to give the venue a personal touch from the bride and groom. Used them to change the entire style of wedding from modern to rustic or rustic to traditional. One of our favorites here, is to mix in some lanterns with our market lights. This adds a little more detail to our venue. Want to make it more personalized for your wedding? Order lanterns in your wedding colors or have a monogram placed on the lantern. Later you can take the lanterns home and use them on your own patio as a keepsake.
