This will help determine whether sunset portraits are possible and what time the next event starts.
Note: Catering services that include plated meals and multiple courses will differ in timing than buffet style meals or food trucks. Your catering coordinator can advise you if you're unsure.
If you will be having toasts, cake cuttings, special dances, or any other events or traditions at your reception, please list them IN ORDER and note whether they will happen BEFORE or AFTER DINNER. * Will you be doing any type of “Exit” from your reception? If so, what time will this take place?
NOTE: If you would like an exit covered in your package but don't have full reception coverage, faux exits can be planned to happen about 20 minutes before your coverage time ends.
Please describe your exit below. Specify whether it will be staged earlier in the evening (see your wedding guide magazine) or at the end of your reception. If there is travel time to and from your different locations and venues, please include an approximate travel times below. Wedding Timeline *
Please provide me with a rough timeline of your day that I can use as a starting point. You can use the sample timeline and suggested times in your wedding guide magazine to create a framework of your day. My goal is to help you create a timeline that will allow for plenty of beautiful portraits and a stress-free day!
Note: If you are not sharing a first look, please plan for at least 1.5 hours between the ceremony recessional and reception entrance for portraits.
Family formals do not have to take over 30 minutes. However, this is only possible if we are organized beforehand! If you have a very large family and more than 10-20 group photos, we will need to allot more than 30 minutes for family formals. Please inform me of any family members that may not get along and/or may not want to be grouped with a certain other family members so that we can avoid any tension or discomfort during family formals.
If you are having a first look, you have the option of also taking all family formals before the ceremony. Would you like to have family formals done before or after the ceremony? Please keep in mind this will take about 30 minutes and will be scheduled to start 1-1.5 hours before the ceremony start time. * Family Groupings for Family Portraits: Please include both the name AND the relationship of all family members being photographed. Follow the formatting below.* * Are there any divorces, separations, tensions, or physical limitations that I should be aware of during family formals? This will help me make subtle notes about how/where to pose family during group shots. Wedding Vendor Information
This information will help me communication with your team on your wedding day. It will also help me credit your vendors when sharing on the blog, allow me to send them samples of their work once your gallery is complete, and is needed if your wedding is submitted for publication (magazines or blogs). Please complete all information that applies to your wedding!
Vendor Image Gallery *
Once your final gallery has been delivered, I will put together and send your contributing vendors a collection of images that showcase their work. Would you like this gallery to include portraits? Should you choose to exclude images with portraits, vendors will only receive images with their work in the images, but without people. For example, a florist would receive a few images of a bouquet by itself, but not an image of anyone holding a bouquet. Should you choose to include portrait images, they would also receive a selection of images that feature the bouquet being held, boutonniere being worn, etc..
