This gives me timing information for your wedding previews
If you would like me to be in direct contact with bride/groom, please specify. Please add the name/contact # of your wedding coordinator as well (if you have one).
Please list time/location of preparation for both parties.
If you will be putting on your Dress/Tux at a different location (for example, at the ceremony venue after your hair/makeup), please specify here.
Will you be doing First-Looks before the ceremony? *
I highly recommend a First-Look for all Fall/Winter weddings in order to maximize your photo time in the daylight.
Please specify who, when, and where. If you have video services, it will be best to wait for me to arrive before presenting any gifts.
If your venue is a hotel, please leave valet or self-park instructions and how to validate our parking tickets
especially important if your ceremony is in a church
Traditional, non-denominational, catholic mass, casual, theatrics, special performances, unusual ceremony orders, etc.
Sparklers, Bubbles, Rice, drive around the block in a getaway vehicle....
Please consider the number of guests you may have and your timing. Receiving lines can take double or triple the time alotted and may take away from your scheduled photography time. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
If your venue is a hotel, please leave valet or self-park instructions and how to validate our parking tickets
Please list and specify any special event, traditions, or non-traditional moments that we should be aware of during your reception. Any other information that you would like for us to know about your reception can be listed here.
This does not apply to weddings under 6 hours* For all weddings 6 hours+, please let me know how you would like me to go about getting my dinner :) ***It is recommended that you ask your caterer to serve our dinners at the same time as you, especially if you would like to do a sunset sneak-away session. It helps tremendously if we are finished when you are finished.
If you have their e-mail that would be best, as I will touch bases with them regarding your reception timeline.
(Please include step-parents)
Place an * next to siblings who are in the bridal party
deaths, divorces, disabilities, etc
Please list each person and their title (example: Matron of Honor, Best Man, etc).
Color Scheme, anything out of the ordinary? Color of flowers, fun ties, funky socks, etc.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me!
This is very important, please do not forget to send me your "detailed" timeline. If you need assistance with your timeline to maximize your photo-time, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please consider your coverage time when selecting an arrival time (unless previously specified in wedding agreement).
If there are two locations for preparation, please let me know asap, as two stops will have to me made before arrival. This means I will have to account for that time and arrival times may be delayed.
Sparklers, etc. Please contact me regarding a grand exit, so I can help make this go very smoothly, and to ensure that we will be there for this moment.
*disclaimer: I do not guarantee any photographs, but I will make it a priority to capture the shots listed below.
This is very important. Please use this area to list each family grouping (using names/relationship to you) that you would like during your family formals time after the ceremony. This list will help make things go very smoothly and will keep everyone organized. I will use this list to call out each group of family members to get them ready for their photo. I recommend making two lists for each side of the family. ***Generally, it takes approximately 2-3 minutes per photo and up to 5 minutes for large groupings***
Please specify if you have transportation to and from each location for your entire bridal party. If you have a Party bus or limo for post-ceremony and would like a photographer/videographer to be on board, please let us know ahead of time. Please also account for an additional body to be included in your transportation head count.
Sometimes, coverage is requested for prep photos in two different locations. If a team member is dropped off at another location, transportation to the ceremony site will have to be arranged by you.
I will post your previews on my blog a few days after your wedding day. The more information that you can provide, the more information I can include in your special blog feature! Thanks in advance!
Who organized your wedding day? Was it DIY, or did you hire a full service planner? Did your venue come with a planner/coordinator?
Please specify who made what in the event you did not have a traditional wedding cake.
