What time was your TTD shoot?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I'm stuck in a dilemma. Our TTD shoot is scheduled for the day after our wedding.. What time should we do our shoot? Early morning or closer to sunset. Please Help!!

 

I really would hate to have to wake up so early, but I also wouldn't want the beach crowded. What did/would you do?

We are still trying to work the timing out with our photographer, but her suggestion is that we do it early in the morning because that is when we'll get the best light. We are not much looking forward to getting up early, but I think we will be happy once it's all over and done with.

Ask your photog. Obviously lighting is going to be different by location and where you are globally. I mean a sunset in cabo or PV is much better than Tulum. We are bringing our photogs with us so once they have been there for a morning and a night we'll decide when, maybe both! We are on a bay w/ only 1 hotel and 1 villa and in August they are shutting down for the winter and there is no one booked on they bay until a week after us so we aren't concerned about a lot of people

We are doing ours early in the morning at 8am. Clearly we're not going to want to get up that early in the morning but we also heard morning or evening is best and we want to spend that evening with our guests so morning it is.

I'm doing ours the next morning at sunrise because we have to hit the road to get to our Disneymoon (about a 10 hr drive)

 

I dont want to get up early but I'm excited to get to see my mom before leaving because, I'm moving too with the wedding and now I live an hour from her and then I'll be 16 hours from her sad.gif

We are having ours early in the morning, since our flight for the honeymoon is around 3 pm.

 

 

Eventhough I didn't wanted to wake up early... I figured we can avoid other people around the beach.

 

Best of luck with your decision...

Uhhh!! I hate this decision making stuff! LOL

I think fiance' and I are probably leaning towards sunset, I would love to do sunrise but 6:50 am is wayyyy too early for me. I'm still torn. I'm going to talk to the photographer and see what they think.

Our TTD is the following week when we change resorts to Sandals Ochos Rios. I want to have the TTD near the Dunns Falls, etc...

I'll be using a natural touch bouquet, so I don't have to worry about the flowers lasting...obviously the won't last a week.

The actual shoot is booked for 5pm, just before the sun goes down, but we will start to get ready to travel around 4. I guess the sun goes down around 7 or so and when it's down your done! This will give us plenty of sunlight for waterfall/beach pics, then some as the sun goes down. I def. want some balck and white pics. too.

We did ours bright and early at 7am the day after our wedding. The beach was empty of other guests and we got some good light from the sunrise. Then we had to hurry back to our room as we were having breakfast in bed at 9am LOL

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
