Your Wedding Day SChedule

We are big fans of Wedding Planners and Month-Of Coordinators as they make sure your schedule runs on time. If you choose to plan your own wedding day schedule, here are a few things to consider when planning for photography.


Tip 1: If your Ceremony begins after 3:30pm you may want to consider doing a First Look an hour or two before your ceremony. This is a moment for the two of you to see each other for the first time that day. After your First Look we will do Bridal Party and Newlywed Photos completing the majority of these prior to your ceremony. This allows for Family Photos and more Newlywed Photos after your ceremony is complete.

Tip 2: Avoid travelling to multiple photo locations unless your schedule allows for it. A good rule of thumb is no more than one photo location per hour.

Tip 3: Try to set aside at least two hours for Bridal Party and Newlywed Photos. This allows us to give you plenty of photo variety including some creative shots.
