The Experience

I know there are countless things that go into a wedding day and make it completely unique. I also know that planning and even your wedding day can come with a lot of stress. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Peruse this page and find tips – from planning to wedding day action items – that will reduce your stress and ultimately elevate your wedding day photos.

Timeline

Planning a wedding day timeline is highly encouraged. It keeps your vendors in-line and adds a layer of time-security to your day.

Family Photos


Family photos are so important, especially on a day when two families become one! Creating a list of must-have family portraits will ensure I’m not missing any photos of important people. 

I encourage you to bring a few printed copies to reference and assign a family member, friend, or bridesmaid to make sure each person is present for portraits.
