:: First Look
Are you planning to do a first look? *
*If no and you want to keep it traditional style, thats totally cool. Be sure to schedule approximately an hour to an hour and a half after your ceremony to do portraits with the two of you, your wedding party, and family photos. The most ideal time for this would be during the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony. Something to keep in mind: all of your guests will now have arrived and be waiting to visit with you at this time which can make it difficult to get through the photographs in a timely manner. I am very aware that this is a very significant celebration and you want to enjoy your guests. I will do my best to move us through this time as quickly as possible, especially if we are losing daylight. However, I do want to provide you with the best possible photographs and everyones cooperation is key. Having your wedding coordinator or point person assisting with this process will also help keep things moving smoothly.
I recommend planning an hour and a half before the ceremony to ensure breathing room for the two of you. Some portraits and the wedding party photos would be immediately following the first look.
:: Group Photos
Friends and Family photos
I know this seems like an odd thing to request but this information helps me to help keep the peace and keep the focus on you and your partner. Leave blank if you are all one big happy family.
:: The Ceremony
i.e. A friend marrying you, a reading, music, ring exchange, pet participation, etc.
* Immediately following your exit from the ceremony, I may pull you aside to have a moment to do a few portraits before joining your guests.
:: Reception
*Sunset Portraits (Time TBD) - when that golden light starts emerging, I would love to steal you two away for a few portraits. I find these photos to always be some of my favorites and it makes for a nice little break for the two of you.
