Optional Night Shoot: Join us for a fun evening of playing with light at night! We'll play with video lights, sparklers and off-camera flash. Sunset will be at 7:26 PM, and the WW Knight grounds have open fields, woods and windows to play in! We'll start with a simple dinner together (included in price) and be out shooting within that golden hour just before and just after sunset. After, we'll gather and share what worked and didn't, and what tricks we can pull out of our hats to give our couples something special, and also what to do when we have those late Fall weddings when we can't get outside for portraits until it's dark!
