Blue is my favorite color
Jason proposed to me with a blue sapphire wedding ring.
I used to want blue hair (okay, maybe I still do).
I seek it out in photographs.
My favorite time of day is “Blue Hour”, a time during twilight when the sun has dipped below the horizon.
During the timeline planning phases, I always ask my couples if they would like to sneak out when the light is beautiful for sunset or twilight. I have to time it right, because often time, the best light is during speeches, dances, or some other formal reception event.
If Twilight portraits are a priority for you, please let me know so that we can plan accordingly!
Some couples are a bit photo-fatigued because all of the wedding guests were very excited to take a photo with the couple during cocktail hour.I completely understand. However, sneaking out during the reception can be a nice quiet break. At most, we’re gone for 5-8 minutes!
According to Wikipedia, “the sunlight’s blue wavelengths dominate due to the Chappuis absorption caused by ozone. Since the term is colloquial, it lacks an official definition similar to dawn, dusk, and the three stages of twilight. Rather, it refers to a state of natural lighting that usually occurs around the nautical stage of the twilight period (at dawn or dusk).”
Blue and yellow are a favorite color combination of mine because they are complimentary color pairs in the color wheel. Just some Modern Color Theory nerding out for ya!
