This is my first posting of my new category called “tying the knot moments”! Wedding photographers from around the country submit their favorite wedding moments and why. A great way for brides and grooms to view what wedding photographers are doing around the country, how their styles differ and wedding day advice. Please don’t hesitate to submit photos!

Today’s tying the knot moment comes from Geoff White Photography and their love for sunsets! Located in northern California where the sunsets are incredible!! I’ve had the pleasure of working with this outstanding and hardworking husband and wife team – Geoff and Lara White. Their attention to detail and vigorous drive shows in their photographs!

“More than the background or setting, lighting is one of the most important elements in photography, with great lighting you can get beautiful images almost anywhere. There’s something magic about sunset lighting, and it’s our favorite time of day to photograph! Outdoor ceremonies at sunset are popular in California, and it allows for the very best images to be created during the ceremony. Outdoor ceremonies held during the middle of the day may be faced with harsh shadows across the bride and grooms’ faces as well as squinting.” – Lara White

“The one thing to consider about sunset ceremonies, is that once the lighting is gone, it becomes very difficult to do your portraits. The best approach is for the couple to have a “private meeting” before the ceremony, and then roll right into romantic portraits. This approach allows you to have an intimate moment together where you can embrace and enjoy each other’s company & also allows you to get great images in the setting you’ve chosen. As an additional benefit, you get to enjoy your cocktail hour with your friends and family!” – Lara White
