perfect wedding timeline 4.22.10  
When the subject of the timeline comes up, I explain that the best use of your photographerÂ’s time is to get all portraits finished before the ceremony if possible. This allows us to have extra time after the ceremony to finish up if we miss anything or if anyone is running really late. Which happens! but not to worry. This way allows you to join the cocktail hour and mingle with your guests. I can get so many more real candids and see who is really important to you.enjoy the appetizers along with your guests!

The other great benefit to having fewer portraits to shoot after the ceremony is that we then have the opportunity to not only document the cocktail hour, but to get into the empty reception space before the guests go in and put their purses, drinks etc.. on the tables and shoot all the details that you spent the last year or so putting together . I love shooting the details! the more the better. love the special touches.

I also explain to my clients that if we do part of their photos together before the ceremony and part afterward, we will get the chance to have different light, different emotions and just some variety! Plus, a lot of times the couple can get very emotional when they first see each other. It can alleviate the tension and expectations of the day.
Having a first look moment allows them a higher degree of privacy for that emotion. All eyes are not on the groom to see if he will lose it! I know my couples hire me because they like the kind of images I can produce. I feel like its just as much a part of my job to educate you about what is and isnÂ’t possible on a wedding day as it is to produce great images for you.


12:00 I arrive, get details, bustling...
1:00 gown goes on
1:30-2:00 first look and you two
2:00-2:30 bridal party
2:30- 3:00 immediate family
3:00 prepare for ceremony
3:30- 4:00 ceremony
4:15-4:30 other groupings if so inclined

so of course this is just a possible outline, it can vary depending on the size of wedding party, family etc.... the smaller the faster it will be. It's moving people around that takes more time.
So all this we can establish what works for you together, this way we are on the same page.
Of course if the light is just so right during the reception I might ask to take you away for 5 minutes... more relaxed, more natural might be your favorite images:)
I just love to keep it moving, this is just a suggestion and telling you what is optimal to get it all.
