For Brides, the options for your hair and make up look are endless and overwhelming to say the least.  For hair alone you have up-do’s to wearing it down, curls and braids, flowers and jems and I’m pretty sure there are plenty of other options I’m not even thinking of.  Then you have to think about your make up look.  Do you go natural or smokey eyes with a red lip?  The combinations are, once again endless and there are some crazy talented artists that can dream up about any look you desire.  Here are some of our recent brides and the stunning looks they decided on and loved for their big day.

There really isn’t a better way to start this dreary, cloudy day than with the bright spirit of our spring bride, Amy.  As I sit down with my coffee and turn on the computer, I start straightening up my desk thinking it’s just another day…nothing special planned.  Then I open my emails and see I have a new review on Wedding Wire from Amy & Sahil.  Now perked up in my chair I anxiously log on to see the full review.

Reviews are so utterly important to running my business and perfecting my craft.  Hearing from my clients what they loved about us and what we can work on is always exciting for me to learn about.  It’s words such as these that continue to fuel my fire and push me to grow.

Amy ~ there are no words to express how elated I feel.  You both were incredible to capture and it’s amazing to hear you had such a great experience. You took my dreary day and filled it with sunshine.  It is a special day after all and for this my heart thanks you.

Imagine a contractor arrives to an open field to construct a home….with no plans. You just pour a foundation, put up some walls and add a roof right?  Well, don’t photographers just show up to a wedding with a camera and start taking pictures?

Not by a long shot.

As most Brides and Grooms will attest to, there is so much more that goes into planning a wedding than you realize.  Find a venue, pick a dress, flowers, ask my best friend to stand beside me, go cake tasting and pick a romantic first dance song.  These might be your initial thought when planning a wedding, however, we’re missing quite a few details aren’t we?  Most wedding timelines, in a sense, are all laid out the same: get ready, details, ceremony, portraits, reception.  What happens between these events is important for the day to run as smooth as possible and that’s where a wedding photography timeline comes in.


It’s important to make the most out of your photography coverage and understanding what to expect benefits the couple, the photographer and many other members of your creative team.  Here are a few things to think about when preparing to discuss your wedding timeline with your photographer:

Any special details big or small

Family group photos that are a must have

Other photo shots that are a must have (besides the obvious ones)

Travel time between locations for getting ready, ceremony and reception

Hair and Make Up schedules

Ceremony, Cocktail hour and Reception start times and addresses


Part of creating a timeline is also creating a shot list.  Before we dive into what should be on your shot list, let’s talk about what shouldn’t be.  By this time, you’ve already hired your photographer.  You’ve chosen this person because you seen their work, talked with them and trust them to professionally do their job.  So, let them.  There are countless ‘Wedding Photography Shot List’s out there and most of them are useless.  Why you ask?  As a professional photographer, we know to capture a photo of the dress, the bride walking down the aisle and the grooms reaction.  We know to get a picture of the ring exchange and your first kiss.  We also know to capture your reception introduction, first dance, parent dances, toasts, cake cutting…I think you get my drift.


What should be on your photo shot list are the items that make your wedding personal to you.  Items such as the necklace your wearing belonging to your Grandmother.  That you have a gift for each of your bridesmaids and you love the packaging you put together.  The extra ‘Thank You’ on the back of your program dedicated to those that cannot join in your celebration.  These are the types of details to create a shot list of and provide to your photographer before the wedding.  Combine these unique details and the items listed above and you’re off to a great start to creating a wedding photography timeline suited especially for your big day!
