The timing of all the main events is where we're going to start! Let me know the start & end times of all the below please!
This is where you get to pour your heart out & tell me if you have to have a getting ready photo with your grandma, or a the photo of your dad seeing you for the first time- anything super important to you! If you're thinking, "Christine, whatever you say" then just type "you do you!"
Groom Getting Ready
If we've already talked about this &as much as I wish I could, I can't be in two places at once and I will not be photographing the groom getting ready then you can leave this section blank.
If YES, then we need to make sure we have time for the first look as well as the bride & groom portraits. Both last about an hour (not accounting for travel time) & consider if you want to shoot the wedding party & family portraits as well but of course, we'll need more time for that.
If you wanna say, "Nah, family and bridal party can wait until after we're husband and wife", we'll need an hour post-ceremony as well.
If we're not doing a first look, ideally this is the shot list that we'll get prior to the ceremony:
Bride with bridesmaids,
Individual shots with each B.M.,
Bride with parents,
Individual with each parent,
Groom with groomsmen,
Individual shots with each G.M,
Groom with parents ,
Individual with each parent
Family Formal Portraits
These are what I call the refrigerator photos because it's what ends up on grandma's fridge :) Feel free to add/change, but keep in mind of the time. It takes about 20 mins. total or about 3-4 mins. per grouping. For extended family, it might be easier to do one large picture rather than many different groupings. I will photograph the family first, then the bridal party, then dismiss everyone to the cocktail hour while I photograph the you guys. If you didn't do a first look, I would much rather keep you two to myself during the cocktail hour for photos so we're not rushed!
For example, bride with bride's family (list names here), bride and grandparents (list names here), etc.
Please provide the names of vendors (if not applicable, just write N/A) and links to their website so I can credit them when I share all your pretty photos!
Thank you for submitting your wedding questionnaire! I will look over this and reach out to you so we can set up our logisitics meeting before the big day! As you know, never hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns, random thoughts. This day is all about you!
