As darkness falls, you’ll need to be prepared. While outdoor weddings are beautiful, they can be tricky if you haven’t thought through some crucial points. Light is a big factor. Especially for photographers and videographers and cinematographers! To the human eye we can adjust easily and quickly to change in light (well, on a relative scale at least), but to the cameras light can be a big problem or a perfect setting. As the sun sets, light changes with every passing second. And when it’s gone, it’s gone, and there’s no coming back – until tomorrow (which, by the way, always happens, thank goodness!).
So if you’re getting married at an outdoor wedding venue then come prepared with a solution to light. Use light to your advantage and create a beautiful atmosphere of romance for your wedding day. Rentals companies offer a plethora of options for weddings: candles, string lights or twinkle lights, hanging lanterns, floating lanterns, tiki torches…why, you could even hire a fire dancer in Bakersfield! There’s something unique about the light of real fire – something that just fits with weddings. So as you continue preparing for your upcoming wedding, think about what mood lighting you could incorporate – to any outdoor or indoor wedding – to invite the romantic, wedding air of joy and love.
