All about the Sun - Drop to Design Studios


Planning and out door wedding?   Here are some things to consider.  The weather.   Is it a rainy time of year?  Is it cold? Can you find pictures from weddings last year at the same time?

But there's one more thing to consider before you pick a date.  the sun.  The big orange thing in the sky.   It moves around during the day and can have a dramatic effect on your wedding photos, video and guests.

If the sun is low and bright, your guests might get a tad blinded.  If it's high with no clouds, it might be plenty bright.  In the spring and summer the sun is up longer, in the winter it goes down quicker because the days are shorter.  

So what do you do?  One thing you can do is look for wedding photos from the same time last year.  If that doesn't work, you can always get an phone app or look online for the sun's location on your wedding day.  You can try this website
