TTD- Better in morning or afternoon?

Recommended Posts

What time of day did you do your TTD pictures- morning or late afternoon (around 5). What time would you recommend and what are the advantages/disadvantages that you saw with that time of day?

Besides sleeping in, I am not sure what the advantages would be to doing it later around 5huh.gif

Thanks for the help!

I was wondering the same thing:-)

 

(MAYBE early in the morning or evening there would be fewer people around...? As for lighting, not sure what would be better...)

 

Anyone? :-)

I was just wondering the same thing...

 

One thing I have liked from some girls' sessions is the kind of wild hair look...like they took their wedding hair down and had fun on their wedding night and then got up to take the pics and didn't necessarily fix their hair again...wow, that was a ramble...:)

haha, good in theory, but in my case that didn't work! since I had an updo, and lots of hairspray to keep it in place, once I took out all the bobby pins it was a disaster. so I had to wash it, dry it and curl it. But the humidity and then the water destroyed it pretty fast.

we did ours in the morning for the lighting and to avoid crowds. But I think in terms of lighting it's only good at sunrise. No way was I getting up that early teh day after my wedding (we were leaving the next day so had to be that day) so we aimed for 8am. I don't think 8am lighting is much different than later in the day. I could be mistaken though.

They call the first and the last hour of sunlight the golden hour for photography. Very rarely do I have clients that want to take advantage of the morning golden hour, so it is usually late afternoon that we go for. Outside of the golden hours you also have a couple of hours that are pretty good. The main thing is you want the light coming from a certain direction and not directly over head.

We did early morning. We were actually on the beach at 6:00 AM.

 

DH hated me, but the photos I've seen are fantastic!!!!

Jeremy's right - first hour or last.

 

As far as the color of the water, it all depends on which coast you're on.

 

East Coast - water is blue/turquoise in evening because the sun is setting over land, and the water is "shimmery"/reflective of the light in the morning because the sun is rising over the water - so when you look towards the sun - the color of the water is not blue.

 

Vice Versa for the west coast.

 

If the coast faces south or north like some islands, then the color of the water will be both - depending which direction you look. Look at the sun and the water is reflective - look away from the sun the water is blue.

 

I think the biggest advantage of shooting in the morning is the lack of people - also, for Becks' pictures - her hair "held" overnight, and it still looked good in the morning.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
