I try to sneak almost all of my couples out (weather permitting) for sunset photos. I’ve never had a couple regret it, and those are usually the most dramtic and beautiful photos of the day.

blkarachnia :  Go for it, just make sure they don’t go nuts.  I was at a wedding this summer, after which we had dinner, then the bride/groom did their dances.  Then they were taken out for pictures in the sunset and did not return, I kid you not, until people were starting to leave!  They came back for… more pictures – to do the sparkler shots.  Do not let your photographer get carried away with it or you’ll miss your own reception.

We scheduled our wedding for the golden hour and it rained… so there’s that, too.  Oh well.

I have the same issue and it’s made worse by the fact that it’s summer and sunset  will be at 5:55.

I’m trying to push back the reception as late as possible. My coord will kill me for it but the sunset photos are very important to me.

You must go for it! Ours came out so romantic in the sunset. Literally no one will notice you slipping away for 20-30 mins.
