    For those of you who have done a TTD...did you do it at sunset or sunrise?? What would you suggest for the best pictures??

    I was thinking that since we will have sunset pictures at the wedding, maybe sunrise would be pretty for the TTD??

    Any advice would be great! THANKS

      We were married in Punta Cana, which is on the eastern tip of the island, so "sunset" pictures would not have worked for us. Thus, we did our TTD at sunrise.

      I think it might depend on your TTD location's orientation. :)

      I think this depends mostly on your location. Riviera Maya, it makes most sense to do sunrise pictures because sunset basically means just getting dark, not beautiful colors. Cabo is the exact opposite.
      Although, there are spots in both locations which would work for both, your photographer just needs to be creative.
      Personally, I prefer sunrise ttd sessions because the beaches are less crowded (people tend to watch sunsets as opposed to sunrises). HOWEVER, I would rather photograph a sunset ttd session because the evening produces such a beautiful golden light plus the gorgeous sunset colors. So, it's really up to you and your photographer.
