    i just got done shooting a wedding in playa del carmen mexico...
    http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t19428 anyways if you want to get great pictures make sure you time the wedding day out with your photographer. the couple i just shot had a late evening ceremony and it gave me about 20 minutes to take the family, wedding party, and the couple's photos before it was pitch dark. needless to say i was rushed

    the sun will set between 5-730 depending on what time of year. and it will set FAST so make sure you time it out with your photographer and allow plenty of time for the pictures because once its dark not much you can do about that.

        We had to deal with this on the Western side too. Our ceremony was at 6pm and the sunset was around 7. Not a ton of "full" sun pics. However, I knew that going in since I looked up the sunset time. There really isn't options for moving the ceremony up at LC, so that's why I was glad I got married in the season I did. Earlier months have even less time to take pics.

        JM- was the bride aware of this before hand?
