One of the key elements to beautiful wedding photographs, is great natural light. This is something all couples should keep in mind when planning their day. When choosing your date, bear in mind that there’s much less light in winter time, and it gets darker much quicker. Consider your church and venue. If it’s a particularly dark church, can you add lots of candles? Generally, using flash during the ceremony can be distracting and obtrusive, and may not be allowed. Having a well lit venue will always make for better images. Are there nice large windows in the reception space, or what will the lighting set-up be like in the evening? These are all important considerations to help your photographer get the most beautiful photos.
