One of the questions I get from clients quite often is, “Do you help us with the timeline?” And yes, I love to give wedding day timeline tips to make your day as photo friendly as possible, AND to work with you and/or your planner to create that timeline. I’m here to help your day be everything you dreamed it would be!! Don’t forget to snag my free guide with some wedding day timeline tips!
A first look
A first look is definitely one way to make your wedding day timeline more photo-friendly. We get to capture as many of the must-have portraits as possible before the ceremony, meaning we won’t be rushed afterwards. If you missed it, last week I shared 3 reasons why I love a first look on a wedding day!
Plenty of time for portraits
With or without a first look, we want to make sure we are including plenty of time for portraits. And we need to account for any drive time if we are switching locations. Portrait time is about 2 hours of a wedding day (including family formal photos), and whether that happens before or after is something we will work on together. Even without a first look, we can take photos of the bride + bridesmaids and then the groom + groomsmen to knock those out before the ceremony and save time after.
A family formal list
This one is super important! I really need a list of who we are taking family photos with to make this as smooth and efficient as possible. I provide my clients with a sample list to get them started, and love when they include the names of the members of their families. This way I can call out names versus “MOTHER OF THE BRIDE!” to let people know it’s their time for photos.
I hope this was helpful for you and full of wedding day timeline tips to help your day run smoothly! If you’d like for me to capture your wedding memories, I’d love for you to contact me HERE!
