Mariko arrives at Bride’s getting ready location and the second photographer arrives at Groom’s getting ready location.
Note: Ideally by the time I arrive, hair and makeup is already wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, it’s often HAMU.
Groom + groomsmen depart for ceremony site & take pre-ceremony group photos.
Bride and bridesmaids depart for ceremony location and take pre-ceremony group photos.
The ceremony takes place.
Note: I do family portraits right after the ceremony because everyone you need will be easy to grab. If you can give your family notice that I’ll be taking pictures immediately after the ceremony, that will also ensure that no one wanders off. I’ll help you create a list of family portraits before the big day.
Bridal Party and Bride & Groom Portraits
Note: Depending on what was taken before the ceremony, this normally takes about an hour total.
Introductions & First Dance
If you want sunset portraits I’ll make sure to grab you two about 45 minutes before the sun sets. This is usually the best light of the day!
Cake cutting followed by bouquet toss.
