Please list names and amounts of the members of the wedding party.
For example, will there be a sand or tree ceremony, will the kiss be in the middle instead of the end, or will you have loved ones read Bible verses or poetry? Knowing this information allows for the ceremony photographs to run as smoothly as possible.
For example, some older buildings or churches do not allow flash photography, or some officiants prefer the photographer(s) to stay in a certain area during the service. If you are unsure, please provide contact information for the venue or officiant below.
As far as the reception meal is concerned, I ask that you consider arranging a vendor meal or allowing the photographer(s) to bring a meal to eat during downtime in the reception. Please give enough notice so that the photographer(s) may make arrangements for a small meal break.
Keep in mind any other traditions you may be taking part in, or whether you will be having a unique dance or exit.
Having formals taken immediately after the ceremony is the most common option, but it may suit your particular schedule to do them another time in the day.
I take responsibility for capturing the shots that you’ve indicated on this form. However, I cannot be held responsible for parties who leave early or don’t participate, shots not previously discussed, or timing miscalculations. If you decide to
add a pose to the list, please make sure you are allowing the proper amount of time (about 3 minutes each) to have them
shot. To allow the formal shots to run smoothly, it is best to make sure all participating parties know to be ready for
pictures at the designated time and place!
Often times the bride and groom choose to have their portraits taken immediately after the family formals are finished and lasting the remainder of cocktail hour, with the exception of "First Looks." A First Look is when the bride and groom see each other (often in private) before the ceremony. In this case, the bride and groom portraits can be finished before the ceremony, leaving them time to mingle with guests and allowing the meal to begin sooner.
Thank you for submitting! I will have a response for you within the week.
