One of the best systems to implement into your wedding or elopement day is a schedule. Not only does it help the day move swiftly & on time, timelines impacts your portraits & makes sure you're allotting the time needed for everything that's important to you. As your wedding photographer or elopement photographer, I ask for a timeline at least 4 weeks in advance of your big day. They often to change last minute too, and that's ok (as long as you send me the updates).
If you've hired a wedding planner they most likely will be working on your timeline with you. But if you won't have a planner tips for the timeline often come from your photographer because they know when they need to get shots throughout the day and how long it will take.
Here are sample timeline blocks to get you started. I urge you to get creative, really make the day yours, and something you'll enjoy by scheduling only the things you want to do. Please contact me with any questions.
Tip: for really great portraits of just the two of you, schedule some extra alone time for just the two of you to decompress and have some portraits taken during the hour just before sunset.
