Twilight Wedding Five2Five



These are a handful of Twilight Wedding images from the Fall Warmth Styled Shoot at The Five2Five that was featured on Seattle Bride Magazine’s Website!

I saved a special blog post, just for them, because they are so unique to my portfolio.

I’ve always wanted to try photographing a wedding ceremony immediately following sunset and have wanted to encourage some of my couple’s to have a twilight ceremony! However, I was afraid to because, before this styled shoot, I had never actually tried. Now, I have images to show for it!

I think a twilight ceremony is a WONDERFUL option!!

Why? Oh, let me tell you. I’ve prepared a list. Ah. Hem.

1.) Enjoy Your FULL WEDDING DAY!!!

2.) Start the day with a brunch wedding day party.

3.) Have a family friendly day, Ceremony in the evening, then put the kids to bed and have an adult party AFTER the ceremony!

4.) Peep those post-sunset colors.. Pinks, Purples, and Oranges are most saturated immediately AFTER the sun has set in the sky!

5.) Plan a full day of fun & memories before the ceremony AND a party after. Don’t end your wedding day wondering what happened because everything happened in a whirlwind.

6.) Get ready Calm & Slowly. No need to wake up at 6:00am for hair & makeup.




Is that enough? Let me know and I’ll send you more. I would LOVE to photograph more twilight wedding ceremonies!

Another word for Twilight is “Blue Hour”. The hour immediately following sunset.

DISCLAIMER: Only hire a wedding photographer experienced with this sort of ceremony. The light can be very difficult for new photographers. If you’re on a tight photography budget, ask for hourly coverage from a high end photographer or stick with daylight!

Thank you so much to The Five2Five for setting up these beautiful macramé swings, backdrop, twinkle lights and all other vendors who helped this vision come to life for beautiful photographs!

Something all of my readers should know if you don’t already? My updates are never permanent. Not even close. What we’re “for sure” up to one week might change in a random two hour conversation at 10:00pm on a Tuesday. I love that for our life. I love having time and location freedom. I feel […]

An End to Sabbatical?

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]
