Choosing when you want to have your wedding can be difficult. But it doesn’t have to be. We want to make sure that everything runs smoothly and we understand that Florida weather can be pretty hard to predict and even then, it’s inconsistent. BUT if it matters to you, it matters to us, too! Let’s talk about portrait and timing tips for Florida Seasons!

WINTER WEDDINGS! They are oh so gorgeous! Florida winters are often dry and mild with a little chill in the air. They do take some additional time and planning simply because of the sunset time. The hard part about a winter timeline is the fact that the sun sets around 5:30pm. This means that all of your portraits have to be done before then! This isn’t a problem if you’re having a late afternoon wedding, around 3:30-4:00pm. If you want to have a ceremony at Sunset (5:00-5:15pm), we definitely suggest doing a first look so that all portraits can be completed before the ceremony. But don’t worry, we can do it!

SPRING WEDDINGS! These are so wonderful! Spring in Florida is the perfect temperature to have a beautiful outside wedding. However, we do recommend having plenty of claritin and zyrtec on hand just in case allergies start to flare up during portrait time. Spring weddings normally mean the potential for some blooms! If we happen to find any type of blooming tree or plant, it will be worth it to give us a few minutes for portraits with it! You’ll be obsessed with the results as much as we will be!

SUMMER WEDDINGS! The warm sun and the perfect time for a beach wedding! We love that there is so much daylight! In some months, the light will last until 8:30pm! So, if you’re having a summer wedding, you’ll need to plan on having a few minutes to slip out of the reception for your sunset portraits! These are an absolute MUST HAVE! You will NOT regret this! This is the absolute best light of the day and you’re going to want to have portraits during this time period. Usually these portraits happen during dinner or open dancing so that no one even notices that you’re gone for a few minutes, they’ll all be too busy eating and having fun!

FALL WEDDINGS! These are our favorites in Florida!! This is probably because the air is more crisp in the fall. We love the temperature and the colors! Most of our fall brides worry about color, and we just want to encourage you that all I need is one tree with some color in order to make it look like fall! A little bit of color can go a long way! Your portrait time will vary depending on your wedding date! We’ll be sure to discuss this when we approve your final timeline! Don’t worry, girl! You’ll get your beautiful sunset portraits! Wedding planning is supposed to be fun and it absolutely can be! Choose your season and we’ll work out the rest WITH YOU!
