These are the MOST important photos of the day. You will hang these on your walls, pass them down to your kids, they'll show their kids and so on! Finally being husband and wife is nothing short of magical, so it's important that we capture that magic. Here's where we'll focus:
Post-Ceremony: While we are probably doing a first look, we'll stick with doing your couple portraits to after the ceremony. Why? You are way less nervous and WAY MORE giddy, high on life & just want to hangout....AS HUSBAND AND WIFE! It will allow you to again, re-focus, realign and have your first moments as husband and wife to just hang, have fun with each other and take it all in.
Sunset/Golden Hour: The closer the sun gets to the horizon, the more diffused the light gets. Essentially, all the sunlight gets filtered through little particles in the air making it “softer,” which is why many photos are most beautiful at sunset! There’s less harsh shadows and the light is much more flattering on both your skin and the landscape around you. I recommend arranging your timeline first and foremost around beautiful light for more of your bride and groom photos.
If you have questions on when that would be, let me help! I like to plan for at LEAST 30 minutes for photos (+ another 15-20 minutes for sunset/golden hour portraits) . But the more time you give me for bride and groom photos, the better your photos will be and the more you’ll receive!
TIMELINE: 30-60+ MINUTES
