I tried so
hard to “Think like a Photographer” when it came to planning my wedding. Most of the time that just came naturally (and it got me in trouble with the budget committee… aka: Daddy) I wanted details and lighting and the layout to be perfect for pictures! I tried to think of the easiest place with good light for family portraits, bridal party portraits, our first look… etc, etc. It was tough. We got married at 3:30pm in October. So I Googled the sunset time and planned our portraits around that. I had to realize that if we did a First Look at 1pm….the light was going to be harsh. So I needed a location with shade and diffused light.
