Early Evening Wedding Photographs
Once the dust has finally settled of the daytime wedding ceremony, the ties are starting to become looser and thoughts start to turn of what will be for dinner I usually like to whisk the bride and groom away for some more intimate early evening wedding photographs. Usually on the grounds of the wedding reception this presents the opportunity for the newlyweds to take a well earned breather before the evenings festivities begin. When you have had a whole host of guests staring at you with smiling eyes all day that level of attention can become tiring so this break is often quite a relief to the couple before they waltz back in for dinner. This usually lasts for around twenty minutes and for me is the most enjoyable part of the day. This in a way is like a formal version of the pre wedding engagement shoot. I like to use this opportunity to take some more creative images where all parties feel more relaxed having had the main stressful part of the day behind them. I always encourage input and collaboration from the couple as i believe that this inclusion sparks enthusiasm that radiates in the images. These images often used for Thankyou cards after the event to the guests as well as being used for framings for the family home.
