Please include their first names: Grooms Name: Grooms Name: Grooms Name: The Details How would you best describe your wedding? What is the brides getting ready plans? What is the grooms getting ready plans? I highly recommend setting aside plenty of time for bridal, groom and family photography prior to the ceremony. This starts the story and starts the photography when everyone is looking their very best and full of emotion before the day’s events begin. I recommend at least 2 hours for bridal photography and 1 hour for the groom. I typically start the day with the groomsmen and then arrive to the bridal getting ready location. Ideally, hair and makeup should be just about wrapping up when I arrive leaving about 45 minutes for detail shots (makeup and hair touch ups) before the wedding dress is put on. This will leave a good hour for bridal portraits before the ceremony begins. Earlier is better here and the more time pre-ceremony I am given the better imagery and variety you will receive. Have you considered doing a first look? A “first look” is when the bride and groom see each other prior to the wedding ceremony either privately or surrounded by family and friends. It is a wonderful time to capture some true moments of joy and emotion as well as allowing much of the portrait photography to be done prior to the ceremony. This allows you to be freed up for your cocktail hour and reception.Will the bride and groom be meeting before the ceremony? If so, did you what did you envision? Yes No what did you envision? Will you have any special transportation? Yes No Will there be any travel between locations? Yes No What time will the ceremony start and how long will it be? : Hours Minutes AM PM AM/PM Ceremony End Time : Hours Minutes AM PM AM/PM Would you like to do a group photo of everyone in the wedding? This would be done just after your first kiss and walk away as a married couple. I would gather everyone present at the wedding into a group, climb a ladder and get a shot with you in the middle. Yes No Are you looking to have family formals done? How many groupings are you anticipating? Yes No Groups Anticipating Family formals are an important part of documenting your wedding day and are usually done either prior to the ceremony (in the event of a first look or reveal) or, more traditionally, done after the ceremony. I recommend completing the family formals prior to the ceremony when everyone is looking their best and are available otherwise immediately after the ceremony. After the ceremony is often a very chaotic time as your guest will be offering their congratulations and heading off to cocktail hour. If you wish to have your family formals done after the ceremony, please inform your guests to be photographed that this is the plan and to hang back on location. Please provide a list of groups you wish to be completed.Will you be setting time aside for an intimate session with just the bride and groom? Yes No This is a great time for more creative and romantic images on location of the bride and groom together. The ideal time for these portraits is just prior to sunset and takes about 10-30 minutes to complete. These will be the "wow" shots for your album.What time will the reception start? : Hours Minutes AM PM AM/PM Will you be making a grand entrance?
