Wedding Photography Timeline

What can I expect from my wedding photography timeline?  What should that look like?  How do I make one?  If you are asking yourself these questions, this post is for you!

With all of my wedding packages, I include a wedding consult with a custom wedding photography timeline.  This is SO important because you and I need to be on the same page.  I will literally be with you ALL day so I want to make sure that I know all of your wedding day details.  What time are you getting in your dress?  What time is your first look?  I have to know these things because I want to make sure that I capture all of the moments that are important to you and I want you to know that I have your back and won’t miss a thing 😉

Now, if you are thinking, “I have NO idea what i’ll be doing and when!”  Don’t worry, that is why we have a consult. I have a lot of experience with a variety of weddings and I know what works and what doesn’t. I understand the process so I will help you.  I will even work with your wedding coordinator to make sure we are all on the same page.

Below is a sample of a wedding photography timeline that I coordinate with my couples.  Included with the timeline is also a formal groupings list which is a list of family groupings that you want at your wedding.  Family photos can get kind-of crazy so having everything written out is SO nice.  That way I can shoot while my second shooter is organizing the family groupings.  It really makes everything so much more simple and coordinated.

Hope this helps!
