You probably already know that the bright mid-afternoon sun is the worst time to get photos because of all the harsh shadows.
Even so, if you take a look at your timeline, what time have you set aside for the group photos? Mid afternoon?
I am not saying you need to completely change your day in order to accommodate your wedding photographer’s needs.
