Some Things to keep in mind:

FIRST LOOK

Photographers love first looks for a few reasons. First, it gives the couple that quiet alone time before the ceremony to really be present and get some sentimental photos. Second, it saves a TON of time as far as the timeline goes. With a first look, you can take the majority of your couples portraits before the ceremony begins, so that we aren't crunched for time after the ceremony before the sun goes down.

CEREMONY TIMING

I always recommend that you plan for your ceremony to take place at least 2 hours before sunset. After the ceremony we have two key things we need to get: couples portraits, and family portraits. If those are pushed back because of timing, we could end up in the dark (and no one wants that!)
