wedding day

timeline reccomendations

15+ minutes for bridesmaids to get dressed

15+ minutes to get into your dress

20+ minutes for bridesmaids + bride photos

20+ minutes for groomsmen + groom photos

25-30 minutes for full wedding party portraits

20-25 minutes for family portraits after the ceremony

ALLOW THIS AMOUNT OF TIME FOR EACH part of the day:

 I RECOMMEND THIS ORDER OF EVENTS 

These times are only estimates, and it’s always great to have a little cushion time here and there.

Ceremony ends
Immediate family members stay for family photos

(If you DIDN’T do a First Look)

Full Wedding Party Portraits
Any other wedding party combinations
Bride & Groom Portraits

(If you DID do a First Look)

You’re done! Go on to the Reception or Cocktail hour


after THE CEREMONY:

Hair and makeup is finished
Photos of the girls together before getting in their dresses
Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride put on their dresses
Bride puts on her dress

(If you are NOT doing a First Look)

Groomsmen + Groom portraits
Bridesmaids + Bride portraits

(If you ARE doing a First Look)

First Look
Bride & Groom Portraits
Full Wedding Party Portraits
Bridesmaids + Bride portraits
Groomsmen + Groom portraits

45 minutes to 1 hour before the ceremony, guests may start to arrive, so its best if we are finished with photos by then
