Hair & Makeup
Begins Detail & Venue Shots
Approximate Time: 45 Minutes to 1 Hour
Bridal Prep & Groom Prep
First, let's get a few group shots of you and your girls in any special pjs, gowns or robes with a mimosa or two!
BREATH! This is a big moment! Time to put on the dress! I usually ask the mother of the bride and all of the bridesmaids to be dressed by the time the bride is ready to get into her dress. This ensures that everyone will look nice in those images. After the bride is in her gown, she can put on her jewelry, veil, shoes, etc. Mean while, my second photograper will be photographing the groomsmen getting ready and the groom's portraits.
Open Gifts & Portraits
Will you be sharing gifts with one another? Before I begin with portraits, we'll find a secluded spot and photograph you opening your gifts from one another and then move right on into your portraits. My second will know where we are so you can avoid being seen by your partner.
Single Bridal Party Portraits
You with your bridesmaids and your partner with his groomsmen.
Single Family Portraits
You with your familly and your partner with his family.
Cushion time allows for any extra shots we might need to get and a chance for you to breath and go into hiding before your guests arrive. In the meantime, my second and I will be gearing up to shoot your ceremony.
See you at the end of the aisle! My second and I will be repsectful of your ceremony and try our best to not be a distraction!
