Importance of a Wedding Photography Timeline (Pt. 4/5)

Hello there again and thank you for returning to Part 4 of Importance of a Wedding Photography Timeline.  If you are just reading us for the first time, you can catch the other Importance of a Wedding Photography Timeline in our pervious posts.  We covered the following:

1. Time of day for pictures

2. Should you do First Look before the Ceremony?

3. What pictures are important to you?

Today we will be covering the topic of: What pictures should you take before and after the Ceremony?

When brides sit down to decide what pictures she wants to capture her wedding day, she also has to decide when to take the photos she wants to capture.  Deciding this can be stressful and that is why the Wedding Photography Timeline is important.  Leaving enough time before and after the Ceremony is important.  It leaves us, the wedding photographers, enough time to capture your special day through our lenses.  Deciding on what pictures to take before and after the Ceremony will also depend on if you, the couple, are doing a First Look before the Ceremony.

Examples of pictures that can be taken before the Ceremony are as follows (this is without First Look & if time allows):

1. Bridal Party pictures – We will make sure that the couple will not see each other.  Depending on time they can be taken at the same time in different locations or at different times using the same location.  There are times though that someone can run late and through off the timeline.

2. Parent/Family Pictures – These two can be taken in different locations at the same time or in the same location at different times.  If the couple would like pictures with the other set of parent, then each set of parents would need to be informed.

3. Individual Bride/Groom Pictures

Examples of pictures that can be taken before the Ceremony are as follows (with a First Look & if time allows):

1. Bridal Party – Now we can take all Bridal Party pictures (with everyone in them including Bride & Groom)

2. All Parent/Family Pictures

3. Individual Bride/Groom Pictures

4. Artistic Pictures of the Bride & Groom

As you will see that if time does not allow and all photos are being taken after the Ceremony, the couple would have to make sure they have a complete list, everyone knows when and where they need to be, and have plenty of time to take all these photos.

We understand the decision is up to the couple, but we also want you to realize that the Wedding Photography Timeline is very important when “mapping” out your day.

Thank you for joining us for this series.  Tomorrow will be last part of Importance of a Wedding Photography Timeline where we will discuss: Time allotted for pictures.
