    I found Octavio Montes Photography has all the year with the best time for your wedding pictures including ligthted and sunset pictures. Check this out.
      
    Lets say “Best Time for pictures” is the moment when the sun ligths body and ocean getting excellent tones in both. This time is when the sun is going down and do not hurt your eyes. 
       The formula is:  “Sunset time” – “One hour and a half” = Best Time
     
    For example:
       Sunset is at: 7:30pm
        Then Best Time  for pictures is at 6:00 pm
        And Best time for ceremony is at 5:30 pm
    How do we use one hour during best time?
       First 30 minutes are used for unformal pictures without facing the sun.
        Second half hour, We can do portraits facing the camera, getting excellent ligth on bodies, faces and Ocean.
