Golden hour is the best time for photographs. It’s the hour before the sun sets and it’s called golden hour because it’s the best lighting for photographs.

I hope you’ve spoken to your photographer – they should know the answer to this. They may prefer not to work during the golden hour – it totally depends on their style!

We’re taking ours after the 5pm ceremony befor ethe 6:30/7pm reception. I hope that’s golden hour. I was concerned it wouldn’t be light enough outside but I doubt that’s the case so not worrying about that any more.

We got married in Jamaica in July 2014, its the same temp all year round and the humidity is always bad.  We had our offsite photos from 4-7. Our ceremony was 3pm.  The sun sets early there, i think it set at 6:45 the day we got married.

We were told that the morning hours are usually more bearable for ceremony/pics but i have always wanted sunset pics

Got married in Cabo- I really looked to our photographer to see what he would suggest in terms of time frame for certain shots. 1 hour before sunset when we did our beach shots- they are BY FAR my favorite shots- the sky was amazing! So sunset was at 630pm, we got married at 5pm- and headed out to do our beach photos for the hour until sunset.

We did our first look about 4pm and those turned out great as well, but those were not on the beach. We did a few shots at night- around the resort with the uplit palm trees and stuff- those turned out good as well, but you can’t beat the sunset beach shots. This was one of the last shots we took.

We got married in Cuba in 2013 we took our pictures on the beach around 4:30. The pictures turned out well because it was overcast which I was a bit upset about at first but the photographer said the pictures would look good because there was no sun and he was right!
