1.5-2 hours Each
You can be photographed getting ready with your partner, separately or not at all. You do you! It's a great time to capture the anticipation and excitement before you walk down the aisle with your family and friends.
30 Minutes prior
I arrive 30 minutes before the ceremony starts to allow for parking, photographing the ceremony set-up, guests arriving and your partner waiting.
Most wedding ceremonies are 30 minutes long and will often start a tad late because getting 100 people to be on time is a big task. Your celebrant will let you know exactly how long is needed for what you'd like to include.
Remember to allow time for guests to congratulate you after the ceremony. Some of the most beautiful, real moments happen during hugs and kisses from your loved ones.
20-30 minutes for 10 groups
The most important photos from your wedding day that you will cherish for years to come. This is the time for formal photos with both your families. A family photo list is a great idea so you don't forget anyone.
Wedding Party & Couple Photos
1 hour if all the photos are at your venue
1.5-2 hours if travel is needed or you'd like mutliple photo locations
The best photos are created when you feel relaxed and are genuinely having a good time so allow time to have fun with your wedding party.
If you'd like romantic, golden light as seen in a lot of my photos the best time for this is the last 30 minutes before sunset. The exact time will depend on the time of year.
In summer the sun doesn't set until 7:30pm and in winter it sets as early as 5:30pm. I can help create a timeline that allows us to do your couple photos during 'golden hour'.
Coverage until about 8:30pm/9pm usually captures your entrance, speeches, cake cut, first dance and guest dance floor action. All the formalities and fun!
