Important Information

I highly recommend all of my couples add on a second shooter to their collection if they haven't done so already, or their collection does not include one. While this is not something I required in the past, within the past year I have noticed that having a second shooter is very necessary in order to accommodate all of the photos my couples would like done within the very strict timeline we are given by the venue. If you would like coverage of the groom and groomsmen getting ready, cocktail hour, and overall more photos of your guests you will need a second shooter. Please ask for pricing.

  • The sunset is the most important element of your timeline. Making sure that there is enough daylight (at least 1.5 hours) after the ceremony ends is key.
  • Coverage begins about 4 hours before the start of the ceremony depending on a few individual factors.
  • Please limit your immediate family photos to 12 combinations or less. We typically have 20-30 minutes for these photos and it takes significant time to gather and organize everyone. With a second shooter, additional family photos can be done during the reception

Final exit notice and updates

For my and my teams safety we have updated our final exit policy when sparklers or fire is involved *please read below*

  • Collections with 8 hours of coverage will not be enough to capture a final exit. If you would like your final exit captured, you will need to plan for a faux exit before I depart, or adding on additional hours to your existing collection. For exits that include sparklers or fire of any kind - we are required to keep a minimum distance away from the exit. I have found that spending 5-6 hours of coverage time on the reception to capture the final exit is not the best use of coverage as it is a quick moment that results in 10 or less images. Once open floor dancing begins, photos being taken for 45 minutes to one hour are typically the ones that end up being delivered for various reasons.

*please note that your venue coordinator assigned to you is not your wedding planner. If you do not have a wedding planner please put n/a*

A first look is when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony begins, and complete their portraits.

This is strongly reccomended

It is recommended that ceremonies start at least 2 hours before the sunset. This allows us enough light for portraits afterwords

All portraits (bride & groom, family) need to be taken before sunset.

I strongly recommend that all of my couples add on a second shooter if they are able to. Not only does it improve the quality of your gallery, but it helps the timeline of the day run smoother.

This requires a first look

Collections with 8 hours of coverage typically do not capture a final exit.

If you do not have this ready - send it in a separate email!
