How To Plan Your Wedding Day
and Schedule Time Needed For Wedding Day Photographs
Wedding photography has evolved over the years and today's modern wedding photography doesn't require you to cram all of your photography into one day... Your already crazy & hectic wedding day!
We recommend scheduling a separate "formal couples session", so we can capture those amazing wedding shots at a time when you're relaxed and without distractions.
Things To Remember When Planning Your Wedding Day Timeline
Plan your day with wedding photography in mind. CHECK THE SUNSET TIME FOR THAT DAY.
So often the day is planned and the photo times are just stuck in between ceremony and reception. This may not always work when trying for sunset shots.
If the timeline is tight, plan some time for photos before the ceremony. If you are planning a non- traditional wedding and the bride and groom will see each other before the ceremony, this works perfect!
Have everyone dressed and ready at least one hour before the ceremony, and be ready for some group shots!
Even if you are not planning on seeing each other beforehand, many family shots can be taken early to save time.
Your "formals" or couples shots are most important and the ones you will be looking at most often in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years... They are definitely the ones you will be showing off to your friends and posting on facebook!!
Decide what time you want to have the bride and groom formals taken Schedule time in your day for those shots.
Remember that it's your day and when it's all over, you want amazing photos to preserve your memories. Make sure to schedule time for the photos YOU want!
Making your wedding day a success takes a team effort, so it is very important that all of your vendors work together AS A TEAM!!
Don't rely on just one schedule given to you by your reception manager or Dee-Jay... MAKE SURE you get your photographer's opinion and plan your wedding day timeline with time scheduled for photography... At the time you want.
