Weddings take a LOT of work, whether you’ve hired a professional planner or you’re surrounded by loved once and about to pull off the best DIY wedding of all time. We’re here to help with some tips on how to get the most out of your photo experience for your magical day!
Your wedding planner might create a schedule of events for you, but make sure to connect your photography team early, so we can give feedback and make suggestions. Photos of individuals can go by quickly, but larger groups can take more time. The more time you give to each session, the better your photos will be! Here is a list of common things captured at a wedding:
Pre-Ceremony Details: rings, invitations, dress, shoes and more.
Preparation / Getting Ready
The First Look / Daytime Couple Photos
Ceremony Details & Venue Establishers
Post Ceremony Couple Photos / Golden Hour
Reception Details & Venue Establishers
Obviously everyone’s wedding is different, so this list is unique to each wedding. Not sure how much photo time you’ll need for each section of the day? Just ask!
Pick Your Locations
If you have large groups that you would like photographed, we recommend having locations already in mind. Keep the mobility needs of older relatives in mind when choosing locations! A great photographer should be able to make almost any location work – but let us know if there’s something you’d like to see!
Remember above all else, this is YOUR wedding. If taking a different set of photos every 10 minutes is stressful or not your idea of fun, talk to us! We know how to streamline groups both large and small and keep sessions lighthearted and unobtrusive.
