1. Make sure there is natural light in the room where the bride and groom will be getting ready (window light) and the area is clean. This makes worlds of a difference in your images.

2. Please have all bride and groom details together before we arrive. (Dress, shoes, jewelry, bouquet, garter, perfume, veil.) This also includes groom details (tie, watch, belt, shoes) my second shooter will only photograph what is available. So please be sure to set these items aside if you want them photographed. Don’t forget a pretty hanger to hang your dress! Your beautiful dress deserves more than a plastic hanger.

3. If possible please have a copy of your wedding invitations with you for your wedding photo details and be sure to include details (if any) Photo example of one below.

4. Allow more time than you think to get ready, it's better to be safe than rushed.

5. We eat when you eat. (It’s better that we eat when you do so we don’t miss anything!! (Please let your coordinator know.)

6. Please let your bridal party know we are open to posing suggestions but we also ask that you try to keep them to a minimum OR appoint one person to direct any posing suggestions to me. This helps keep the timeline flowing smoothly.

If we haven't discussed this in detail yet, now is the time! I would love to help you create a timeline that will allow for plenty of beautiful portraits and a stress free day! If you're sharing a FIRST LOOK - I will need to start shooting bridal details at least 2.5 hours before the ceremony. 3hours is recommended if there is no extensive travel time to the ceremony venue.
Example: Surprises, gifts Etc?
Family formals do not have to take long. However, this is only possible if we organize beforehand! Please list only 5-10 different groupings for family portraits. For example: 1. Bride & groom with parents. 2. Bride and groom with grandparents. 3. Bride and groom with siblings. If you have a very large family and more than 10 group photos, I suggest saving some of the extended family shots until the reception so that family portrait time doesn't interfere with your romantic (bride + groom) portraits and you will not keep your guests waiting at the reception. Also, PLEASE let either your maid of honor or coordinator know to round these people up for you ahead of time. It can get a little hectic and will save us a lot of time.Thank you!
This helps us ensure we don't pair people together that aren't together.
It is very important you let us know!
VERY important. We would like to credit everyone who partakes in making your wedding day magical!
