    I’m just wondering if any brides who were married later in the day had their pictures done before the ceremony and how well it worked out.
    We are getting married at 4pm and some of my friends tell me that we should do our pictures before our ceremony, so the water is really blue and everything looks brighter.
    Can you book Michael before the ceremony?
    Thanks for the help, still trying to figure this all out.

      I'm having my wedding at 5pm. Fi and I are for sure going to take pictures before we say the I dos ... I would advise doing them like 40-45 mins before the ceremony. Its worth it to buy the extra Photography time...

        I'm not sure about having them done before the ceremony but I'm wanting to have mine at 4 pm as well and want to do pics after. Partly because I'm a little superstitious (you know...can't see the Bride before the wedding) and partly because I'm hoping to get some great pics of us at sunset!

          Thats kind of why I don't want to do pictures before too!
          Sunset pictures would be really pretty!

            I guess I don't have to worry about this because I am getting married at 11am. There sure are advantages and disadvantages to whatever time you get married.

            Personally, I would not do pics before..I'm supersitious too

              I am getting EVERYTHING done before the ceremony! All the portraits and family pictures since our ceremony and reception are in the same house and we are not having a formal sit down dinner it's an informal buffet cocktail reception I want to be able to just relax and mingle.

              Plus being that I am a professional photographer.... I must say that any wedding that I have shot where the bride and groom have decided to see each other before the ceremony for one reason or another have worked out fabulously! I actually recommend it if there is going to be light issues after the ceremony. I'm not a very traditional person so I have no problem with us seeing each other before the ceremony, it'll be nice because we won't be rushed and will be able to take our time!

                My wedding was at 4:00 and I had Michael come to my room at 3:15 to get pics of me and my BMs. The ceremony was over by 4:20 I think and there was still plenty of sun for pictures.

                  My ceremony was at 4 but we were running late waiting for my Mom so it was more like 4:30 and probably 5 when we took pictures. I LOVE our pictures. Even though you can't see the sun setting it makes the clouds pink and orange and purple and it's so pretty and the water is blue. I loved it!

                    We are taking our own photog with us, so we have an advantage.

                    I'm going to do my TTD a few days before the wedding. We will take as many pics before the ceremony as possible.

                    We are getting married at 4pm and I don't want to see FI before we go down the aisle.

                      We got married at 4. We took some picture between 2:30 and 3:45 and back from 4:30 to 6:30. Justin aunt took the pictures so she was flexible. If you want picture with a clear blue or turquoise water you should take picture between 12h-3h a would say. But it all depend on what you want
