We know one of the main reasons of planning a destination wedding, are the beautiful sunset pictures that we love as much as you do! So in order to get the “perfect lighting” for your wedding memories, the best time to plan your wedding ceremony will be 1 to 1.5 hours prior to sunset, and in Riviera Maya it may vary during the year. Based on our experience, almost all weddings usually flow as follows:
- Wedding ceremony (20-30 minutes)
- group & family session followed by the couple’s portrait ( That way we can take the most of what we,the photographers, call the “Golden hour” (30 minutes before and 30 minutes after sunset).
- Based on the weather & sunset times during the year, our suggestion to schedule your ceremony time will be:
Winter: 3:30 – 4:00 pm / Spring & Fall: 4:00 to 5:00 pm / Summer: 5:00 to 6:00 pm.
We don’t recommend having a wedding between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm, specially during the Summer “high wedding season” (May-July) as it might be extremely hot and the sunlight is too bright, so you and your guests would barely be able to keep your eyes open.
On weddings longer than 4 hours, a meal for the the full team will be really appreciated.
It’s always nice to have two perspectives on major moments; that’s why all of our packages (4 hours & up) always include a second photographer/assistant. In case you’re having a “short coverage” or “pay per hour” plan (1 to 3 hours), you can get a second shooter for an extra fee and upon request (with notice of at least 1 month in advance, preferable when you sign the contract).
