Congrats on your Dec wedding coming up in our magnificent Mayan Riviera, MBK!!! yes, sunsets here are really fast, so prior planning is important.
Here's a link to the Cancun sunsets in Dec 2015 from our webpage: Cancun sunsets 2015 which shows the sunset ranging from 5:05 to 5:17 in Dec 2015
This is a suggested timeline that we've found works well in the flow of your wedding day time line....
(Assuming a 3pm Ceremony time.)
1pm – Guys/Girls getting ready (MTM photographers split up to cover both at the same time)
3pm – Ceremony (Both MTM shooters work in tandem to capture your ceremony with artistic style!)
3:30pm – Family Formals and Wedding Party
4pm – Newlyweds (plan to capture the couple for 1 hr. Hopefully we will be shooting 1hr to 1.5hrs before the sunset!!!)
Newlyweds often plan the cocktail hour for their guests while we shoot the newlywed images
5pm – Reception start. If you like, often we arrive a few minutes early to capture the reception site, do a cake cutting and first dance.
That is how we recommend a wedding day unfolds. Again… you can add more or less time to your package to accommodate your needs!
We also recommend to our wedding couples that the optimal time for scheduling the newlywed photo session (usually happening after the ceremony during the cocktail hour which entertains the other guests) is 1 to 1.5 hours before sunset, to get those magical lighting conditions that will take your breath away!!! examples seen here....enjoy!!!
Wishing you all the best with your plans - cheers!!! team MTM
