Sample Wedding Timeline witHOUT a First Look

11 A.M.

Alicia arrives at getting ready location and Keith arrives at second getting ready location

Note: Ideally by the time we arrive, hair and makeup is  wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, this it it!

2:00 P.M.

Group + Individual Photos with bridal parties on each side

3:30 P.M.

The Ceremony

4:00 P.M.

Family Portraits

Note: We do family portraits right after the ceremony because everyone you need will be easy to grab. If you can give your family notice that we’ll be taking pictures immediately after the ceremony, that will also ensure that no one wanders off. We’ll help you create a list of family portraits before the big day.

4:00 P.M. 

Cocktail Hour

Note: I recommend a cocktail hour that is more than one hour (1.5 is usually perfect) as this gives your guests time to mingle as we do family portraits.

4:45 P.M.

Couple Portraits

We’ll make sure to grab you two about 1 hour before the sunsets. This is usually the best light of the day! (The timeline is based on a sunset around 6PM) Since there is no first look, we will need at least 45 minutes (or more) for formal photos.
