Time planning

Having a set wedding day timeline is very important for how the day will

go, and it starts with getting ready. When planning timeframe of your

day consider that the wedding photographer should arrive at least 1 hour

before the bride is ready. During this time, the photographer can get

detail shots like the bride applying her last bit of lipstick, getting

ready, dress, rings, invitation, bride sipping a glass of champagne,

gathering with bridesmaids when getting ready for your wedding day. Make

sure you have enough food for your and your hangry bridesmaids while

everyone will be getting ready.

Schedule a time for a first look. This sentimental moment is really

unique and you will never regret doing this. The photos of pre-ceremony

first look photo session will make more sense as you can schedule it in

better lighting place and it will be a much more intimate moment then

seeing each other for a first time at the ceremony.

When planning your day you should keep in mind that the worst time for

an outdoor photo shoot or outdoor ceremony is from 12 pm till 2 pm

because of the very harsh light. The best time is one hour before


To better understand when to start getting ready, begin with the time

that you need to arrive at the ceremony venue, and work backward. Ask

yourself what do you need to do before that and it will help with the

planning the timeline for your wedding day.
