Wedding day timeline....

I found that brides don't always allow enough time for wedding photos on their wedding day. Many times they will underestimate the time it takes to create some of the more artistic photos they envision. Often they set aside an adequate amount of time for photos but underestimate how long it takes to get from the church to the reception. When you attempt to round up a wedding party and get them all into the limo, it never fails someone is missing. There are a million other little things that can eat up 15 or 20 minutes before you know it. That time has to be made up someplace and often it comes off the photography time. As a photographer there is not much we can do about it, except make you aware that unless you give us the time, we can't do our job properly. So please, go over your time line with your photographer. Always allow more time than you think it is going to take to get from point A to point B. Throw in 10 or 15 minutes here and there throughout the day to cover delays. If you don't need them, great you are ahead of schedule!
