Five minutes with Devon-based photographer Julie Louise Sum

Five minutes with Devon-based photographer Julie Louise Sum: Image 1 Julie Louise Sum is the talent behind the lens at Julie Louise Photography based in Exeter, Devon. Her style of is relaxed, natural wedding photography and she works her magic capturing night shots, landscapes and other beautiful details.

Here, she explains what to consider when postponing a wedding until autumn...

"One of the most important things needed for wedding photography is light. With more couples postponing their ceremony dates until later on this year, I'm reminding them to consider the light outside and how it can alter the flow of the day when choosing a new time. During the winter months, the light can drop from as early as 3.30pm and a change can be noticed within ten minutes. If a couple gets married at 2pm, I have to think about how quickly we can realistically take the photographs after the ceremony, taking into consideration that guests will want to enjoy a welcome drink and couples won't want to feel rushed. I must manage people's expectations with their requests in terms of what can be achieved."

She continues, "there are some things that couples should do when choosing their new date and time:
*Consider the ceremony time with the sun going down (your photographer will be able to guide you on this).
*Think about how much relaxation time is required following the ceremony.
*Consider having indoor photographs and where these might be suitable within the venue. Wedding coordinators usually have good advice about this.

There are always ways to work with weddings where the light will be limited, even if it means getting a night shot for some extra magic. Some of the things I consider are:
*Prioritising couple portraits first and then taking any group images indoors.
*Allowing for travelling distances between changes of venue, for example from a church to a reception venue.
*Measuring the light outside one week before the big day to see exactly what time I have to work with.
*Opportunities to add additional light sources so that I can take creative images outside or look at innovative ways to capture romantic images indoors, for example in a candlelit barn.

The logistics of the day may have to shift slightly and open communication between the couple and photographer is key but either way, the day should be happy and fun no matter what the light and weather are like."
