    Photos at dusk would look so lovely (think of how lovely the sky looks with shades of pink).

    The best light for photos is dawn & dusk (well depending on other weather & location factors) so I’d definitely go for dusk photos.

    As PP mentionned, the light in mid-day is not so great. Keep your pics for dusk!

    I voted dusk, but really, you should talk with your photographer about it. If your venue has a lot of shaded areas you’d be fine to do them earlier, if not you should wait.

    Photos at dusk may be lovely, but I personally think it would be a bit awkward to hang around after all your guests have left just to get photos, I would prefer to continue the party with my friends/guests somewhere.  Plus, at the end of our wedding after a few hours of dancing I certainly wasn’t looking picture perfect…

    @Edelweiss:  It’s not weird if you don’t think it is!  Since it is a weeknight and your guests won’t be sticking around after I’m sure it will be fine to do photos after.  Do you think anyone will want to have dinner or spend time with your guys after the wedding?  Our friends would have hung out all night with us, but I finally had to excuse myself around 3am 🙂

    Definitely do the pics later in the day, midday light is much harder to deal with, and less flattering than dusk. Plus you risk having pictures with lots of squinting in the bright light!
