Your Wedding Timeline

Hi there! I am so excited about your upcoming wedding! In an effort to make your wedding day images everything you hoped for and more, I have compiled a timeline for you to review and build so that I can ensure I am able to cover all the bases of your desired photographs.  Below you will find several categories with different sections to check off
with an amount of time listed next to each of them.

After you fill in the checked box besides each of the sections, you will then receive an estimate on the amount of time required for me to capture those images on your big day with a copy of the selected boxes. I calculate time in minutes and then convert to hours, rounding up to the hour, and will follow up via email with several collection suggestions that would work best for you. This is only an estimate and we will meet in person to go over what you have selected here so that we can customize a collection that fits all of your needs. 

If you are not sure which selection is best for you where there are several, it is best to overestimate as EVERY wedding falls behind a little bit. Yes, even the most punctual, organized wedding! My goal is to help keep us on track never rushing.

Please note any questions that you may have as you fill this out and do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing about your wedding day and finding the perfect
collection for you!

Games
Not every wedding has games. It really depends on you and your guests.
Food
Time is used consecutively so make sure you account for the time you and your guests will be eating. During this time we do not take photos of guests because people do not like their photos taken while they eat. We use this time to grab a snack ourselves and prepare our gear for the second half of your wedding (backing up photos, charging batteries or collecting reception details if they were not available prior to the reception)
Reception Events
If you are doing a special event during your reception that I don't have listed, please let me know!
Special Send Offs/Getaway
If you have ANY questions about anything that you've read here or when it comes to filling out your wedding details, please do not hesitate to ask and be reassured that we will be meeting again soon once this is completed to go over all of the specifics and make sure we are on the same path to wedding day perfection! I can't wait to hear from you!
once you hit submit, you're timeline will be on it's way to us and we will forward you a copy - we can't wait to hear about your wedding!
