Photographers arrives at Bride’s getting ready location.
Note: Ideally by the time we arrive, hair and makeup is already wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, it’s often HAMU.
Bride + bridesmaids pre-ceremony group photos.
Groom + groomsmen pre-ceremony group photos.
Note: I typically begin with the groomsmen once they are all dressed and ready, then take a few photos of them doing some final adjustments.
Photos will wrap up approximately 30 minutes prior to the ceremony.
The ceremony takes place.
Note: I do family portraits right after the ceremony because everyone you need will be easy to grab. If you can give your family notice that we’ll be taking pictures immediately after the ceremony, that will also ensure that no one wanders off. I’ll help you create a list of family portraits before the big day.
Bridal Party Portraits
Note: Depending on what was taken before the ceremony, this will typically be just the whole bridal party together.
Bride + Groom Portraits
Introductions & First Dance
Welcome toasts & salads followed by speeches and entrees
(or whatever order you choose to do your reception events in. During the reception, I go into documentary mode and capture what’s happening).
I’ll make sure to keep an eye on the sky and grab you two for a few minutes when it looks the best!
Cake cutting followed by any other traditions.
