It’s all about the light… | Melbourne Wedding Photographer

While looking up some information on sunset times for a photo shoot of a series of buildings I am doing, I thought…this is valuable information I should share with my wedding clients. 

Lighting is an extemely important factor to photography. Some which we can control (flash etc), some which we can’t (the sun).  It is very important that when you plan your wedding, that you utilise the best light for your photographs.  You do not want to be doing your photo session in the dark, because using only flash, is very unflattering.

The best time to take photographs is generally the couple of hours leading up to sunset and about half hour affter.  If you book Lizzy C Photography I am of course here to advise you on how to best utilise the available light.  We can also arrange the locations so as to use the best light available at the time at each location.  This is something we can experiment with during your included e-session, prior to the wedding.

This is a good starting guide which indicates sunset/sunrise times at different times of the year.
