Q. What is the best time of day for photos?
A. Mornings (7AM - 1PM) are great for more vivid colors--Deeper blues and greens. Afternoons are great in case you're going to a luau, and sunsets are great for the fiery orange colors. For a sunset session we'll start one hour before the sunset. This gives us plenty of light for the ceremony and photography, ending with the sunset.
