WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TIMELINE | IDEAL TIMES FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY

With the diversity of the cultural aspects of our weddings, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact wedding photography timeline template. However, there are ideal time frames you should consider when planning your day. Some of these times may seem long on paper but keep in mind that 1) the day will fly by, 2) most weddings run slightly behind schedule, and 3) I will make these photo sessions fun, so it won’t seem like a long time.

RINGS, DRESS, SHOES, AND OTHER DETAILS

Ideal Time Allotment – 30 minutes Ideal Time of the Day – Morning Ideal Location – Bridal Suite or Hotel Suite

Advice – Having at least 30 minutes for details ensures that we have plenty of time to get that perfect photo of the dress, rings, shoes, bouquets, and the other details of the day.

There are times when a hotel room is too crowded or simply unappealing; we have to take the dress all the way down to the lobby or even outside. This can take some time, but as you can see from the results, it’s well worth the additional work.

PREPARATION

Ideal Time Allotment – 60 minutes for bride and 40 min for groom Ideal Time of the Day – Morning or Early Afternoon Ideal Location – Bridal Suite or Hotel Suite

Advice – Having an hour of preparation is ideal for our style. During this time, we are getting close ups of the makeup and hair being applied as well as the candid moments and the bridesmaids and groomsmen get ready for the day. Keep in mind that these are some of the most emotional and fun times of the day, so you don’t want to cut it short.

There are a tons of great moments during this time between the groom and his family and friends.
