On the day of your wedding, there are many things that happen that cannot be predicted but having a wedding itinerary for all your vendors can be very helpful in keeping everybody on time, including family, bridesmaids and even you (the bride). I strongly recommend having someone in charge of your wedding day (wedding planner) to take care of these things for you and provide you with a “stress-free” day but if you are unable to have one, then having something like this put together can really help with the flow of the day. Things might be a bit behind, or if we are lucky a bit ahead but what I am positive about is that things will stay on track and everyone will know what’s next. I created this template for a wedding itinerary that might help with the photography part of the day. Some brides like to include information regarding the florist and reception so we know when we will be able to photograph it. This will need to be planned ahead of time if you want the day to be smooth and stress free but it will be so worth it. Having no surprises on your wedding day (in terms of itinerary) can be the difference between an overwhelming or very relax and laid back dat. Contact me if you have questions. If I am your wedding photographer, an email will be sent to you automatically a month and two weeks before the wedding to complete the itinerary but I am always available to answer questions and to help plan wedding photography on the big event. Happy planning and enjoy the weekend!
When you are planning the time you want me to arrive, take into consideration if you want to have the process of hair and make-up application documented. Most of the time, I arrive 20 minutes before the scheduled time for make up and hair and use the time to do a few captures of your wedding dress, shoes etc.
While I photograph the bride getting ready, my assistant for the day photographs the guys getting ready, this way we document your wedding from your point of view and from your future husband’s point of view.
Then we head out for portraits of you with your bridesmaids while my assistant photographs the groom with his groomsmen (this is if you don’t do a first look).
After the ceremony, if you decide to do formals at the church, we take about 20 minutes and then head out to a location to photograph your entire wedding party (only Bride, Groom, Bridesmaids and Groom’s men).
We then take 20-30 minutes to focus on you two (Bride and Groom).
After portraits on-location of the bridal party, I ask the brides to allow us a few moments before the guests are allowed inside of the reception for photographs of the room and detail shots.
After all these, me and my assistant document the rest of the evening without interruptions.
And if you are interested in doing a few at the end of the night, we step outside for a few minutes and capture the last picture for your wedding album!
