Inspiration | An Ideal Wedding Photography Timeline

Throughout my experience photographing weddings, I have created an ideal wedding timeline to aid in my wedding clients’ planning. This wedding day timeline allows ample time to document the main events of the day, while making the best use of time and lighting. I have included two ideal timelines: one for a wedding which includes a first look before the ceremony, and the second a more traditional timeline. Lisa Catherine brides receive help arranging their timelines as well as a detailed photography timeline for their wedding day to ensure the day runs seamlessly.

 

'First Look' before Ceremony

60 minutes - Bridal pre-ceremony details. Photojournalistic captures of the bride getting ready towards the end of her hair and makeup. Details of the dress, jewelry, and other special attire.

30 minutes - Captures of the bride getting into her gown and a few styled bridal portraits.

15 minutes - First look with bride and groom
