Your wedding is coming soon and if I can kindly ask to put together your timeline for the wedding day. This will keep us on schedule as much as possible and stress free. If you need to add more hours, just let me know and we can make that adjustment too.
Some tips and things to remember:
– Family group photos can take up to 2-3 minutes per grouping, the more groupings you have for your family shots (especially larger groupings) the longer we’ll have to spend taking photos.
– If there are specific guests you want photos with, but you don’t want to take up more time during group photo time, put them on the list and grab me during the reception to make sure you get a photo with those guests.
– Keep in mind the time of your ceremony compared to when the sun sets. If you are getting married close to sunset and planning to do all your photos (wedding party, family, and couples photos) after the ceremony you may not have enough time for daylight outdoors. This may mean you want to switch around the timeline a little bit, move the ceremony time, or be prepared to do group shots and your portraits indoors or in the dark. Ideally to shoot couple photos is during the golden hour which is shortly after sunrise or before sunset. During these times the sun is low in the sky, producing a soft, diffused light which is much more flattering than the harsh midday sun that so many of us are used to shooting in.
