This first section is just basic information about the wedding day! Here are a few tips to know beforehand:

1. Make sure there is natural light in the room where the bride will be getting ready (window light). This makes a WORLD of difference in your images! Promise!

2. If possible, try to have all bridal details together before the photographer arrives. (Dress, jewelry, shoes, bouquet, gar- ter, veil, etc) This will make the detail shots faster!

3. Keep the area near the window free of trash, bags, snacks, etc. This will be where the bride will be putting on her dress! We don’t need any Aquafina bottles in our bridal portraits:).

4. Allow more time than you think you need to get ready! It’s better to be safe than RUSHED!

5. Relax and have fun! You’re getting MARRIED!!

If you’re sharing a FIRST LOOK, I will need to start shooting bridal details at LEAST 2.5 hours before the ceremony. 3 hours is recommended if there is no extensive travel time to the ceremony venue. If you’re working with a planner, they can forward this information to me if that’s easier. Email me if we need to go over this together! I’d love to help!

If you are sharing a first look, what is your preference on how private you’d like it to be? We have found on most wedding days, there is always a somewhat awkward conversation of whether or not bridesmaids and/or parents can watch from a distance , up close, or at all, This is your decision, and we are asking you in advance so that we can ensure that your preference is honored on your special day and that you don’t have to have any awkward conversations the day of.

If so, do you prefer to see this person prior to the bride + grooms first look or after?

If you are sharing a first look, do you plan to wear your veil for during it? Some brides choose to wear their veil for the first time when they come down the aisle because they can be heavy and uncomfortable, however I would only recommend this if we have a significant amount of time dedicated to portraits of just the bride and groom post-ceremony.

Here is a reminder of the details that I photograph at every wedding: dress, veil, all 3 rings, shoes, bouquet, earrings, full invitation suite. Please select from the list below any additional details that you plan to bring (this is just so we are prepared for the amount of time that we will need to capture all of your details).

Wedding Vendor Information

This information is important in the event of an emergency on the wedding day & it is also needed if your wedding is submitted for publication (magazines or blogs). When submitting to any publication, they will need all of your vendor information.

Please complete whatever information applies to your wedding! Little details are the best! ex: your necklace was your GREAT grandmothers that she wore on her wedding day! When I KNOW these details, I can make sure that I capture everything that has sentimental value to you!

Please list out some of the KEY details you want to make sure we photograph. We capture all reception details, bridal details, etc but sometimes there are some details that are unique that we are unaware of. Please list any details you want to make SURE we shoot so that we’re all on the same page. Your planner can fill this out if that would be easiest.
