*You'll notice that I give about 5 minutes between some sets of photos when there is a location change (even when on the same property) and this is to account for walking time/gathering people for photos. Every minute matters with a timeline like this.
dress, shoes, veil, invitations, rings, etc.
### 2:15-2:35 | GETTING READY PHOTOS | 20 mins total
last minute makeup/hair touches and robe shots
### 2:35-2:50 | GETTING DRESSED PHOTOS | 15 mins total
Bridesmaids and mother should be dressed and ready by this time (right after robe shot) so I can document all of them helping bride into her dress.
*Example of how I've given 5 minutes to transition from "getting ready location" to "first look location"
### 4:10-4:30 | BRIDAL GROUP PORTRAITS | 20 mins total

This is when photographers will take pictures of reception decor and details if reception is on the same property as ceremony. We like to photograph all of your decor before people start putting jackets and purses down on tables and chairs.
### 5:00-5:30 | CEREMONY | 30 mins total
Bride + Groom with Bride's aunts, uncles, grandparents, parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews.
Bride + Groom with Bride's grandparents, siblings, parents
Bride + Groom with Bride's grandparents
Bride + Groom with Brides's siblings
Bride + Groom with Bride's Parents
Bride with Mom
Bride with Dad
*Repeat for groom's side. If you're worried about gathering family after the ceremony, have the DJ announce who is needed, when, and where they should go.
This is a special moment. It's finally just you two, alone, for the first time all day!!! We love to capture the excitement happening in this moment, but if you don't want more photos during this time then we respect that and recommend you two going away and having 10 minutes together before the reception starts.
We are pretty flexible during this part of the day and will mainly be capturing candid moments as they happen. You'll actually be scheduling these events with the DJ and they'll be in charge of keeping your guests entertained. These are just suggestions based on previous weddings we've photographed.
