In love, in life, and especially in marriage photography, timing is everything. Recently Ben and Leanne were married here at Mountain House Estate and their wedding photographer Crystal Clear Studios Photography did an amazing job with their wedding portraits.
Let There Be Light
Natural light is a photographer’s friend, and you can see they absolutely know how to work with available light. Knowing when the sun is setting can get you amazing wedding portraits you will cherish for a lifetime.
This sunrise and sunset calculator from Time And Date gives couples a complete calendar of when the sun will rise and fall here in Cloverdale, California. This calculator is an absolute must for any couple getting married. Locations can be changed to calculate sunset times anywhere in the world.
Knowing what time the sun will set will allow you to carve out plenty of time after your wedding ceremony for some magical portraits before rejoining your guests for a night of dinner and dancing.
Slow Your Roll
Word to the wise, don’t rush! You will never look back on your wedding day and say you wished you had spent more time at your cocktail reception.
However, you may look back and wish you had allotted more time with your wedding photographer capturing amazing moments together.
This portion of our Mountain House Estate property with its wide-open lawn, rolling hills in the background, windmill, and antique truck with wine barrels are a perfect location to roam, cuddle and drift away into your own little world.
Be sure to reach out to our Mountain House Estate team at (707) 385-1410 or [email protected]to discuss your picture-perfect California wine county wedding.
P.S. – since we were sharing some of the amazing images of Ben and Leanne’s wedding, we absolutely had to share these incredible photos of Ben and his bride-to-be as she made her way down the steps of Oak Tree Terrace.
Congratulations Ben and Leanne – we wish you a lifetime of sunshine. We hope you enjoy these photos at Mountain House Estate, one of the best places to take engagement photos in Northern California.
