SHOTLIST!

Share a detailed shot list, timeline, and schedule with your photographer in advance to ensure they capture all your desired moments.

FIRST LOOK

Consider a “first look” session—it gives you more photo time, lets you take family photos before the ceremony, and provides valuable alone time before the main event.

DON'T WORRY

If the day runs behind schedule; nothing starts without you two. Roll with any unexpected changes or mistakes—they’re your little secrets.

STAY IN THE PRESENT

Breathe. Remember to smile, even amid the stress. You’re on camera capturing emotional and chaotic moments.

BE YOURSELVES

Less is More

Please create a concise and well-organized list of the essential portraits you want, specifying their order. Remember that less is more when it comes to the list to ensure a smooth flow. If you have specific requests like portraits with each bridesmaid and groomsman, please inform us in advance, as this requires extra time.

03

Timing

Plan for approximately 5 minutes per portrait/family combination during the session.

02

Detail Shots

Certain standard wedding photos, such as the rings, bouquet, dress, and shoes, are part of any professional photographer's routine. However, if you have unique items, heirlooms, or special guests you'd like featured in your album, please inform us so we can capture them beautifully. Also note that these details take time, plan for one hour of coverage.

Review

Once we finalize the details, we will go through this process together to ensure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day.
