wedding day questionnaire
No two weddings are the same so it is important for me to have as much information about your big day as possible, so that everything you want is captured! Please take the time to answer the following questions so that your needs are met and I can do my job properly :)
All of this information is important for me to have but it is paramount that I have timings, a schedule and the names of the people in your group shots.
Thank you so much! :)
my tips for getting the most out of your photography
In order to allow for a private photo session of the bride and groom, I will need at least half an hour of your time alone. Wedding days go by in a flash so making time for portraits is paramount and it will also be nice for you both to enjoy some alone time on the day away from your guests! This time can be split into two 15 minute sessions to make use of the different types of light during the day; possibly one session in the early afternoon during your cocktail hour and then another at golden hour (just before the sun is setting and we get that gorgeous orange sunlight! Of course it needs to be a clear day for this.)
I will visit your wedding venue/s before the day (possibly even with you) so that I can help to plan out where best to photograph yourselves and your guests, however if you have any ideas in your head about this please do share with me!
I highly recommend getting confetti (a lot of it) and making sure we take a confetti shot after the ceremony (of course only if this is allowed at the venue, if not we can do it elsewhere!) It always makes for such a fun time and gets creates great photos.
Please ensure the presence of all required family members and friends at the group photo times. I will of course be able to help organise this but it would be a good idea to enlist the help of a groomsman/usher/someone who knows the people/someone with a loud voice to help me gather the groups together. Plan for about 5 minutes per photo for shots with less than 10 people and 10 minutes for shots with more than 10 people and if you can please let these people know prior to the wedding date that they’ll be needed for formal photos.
I will of course be there with my second photographer (if you have chosen to have a second shooter) capturing every part of the day but please do let me know if there are any specific shots you really want me to capture of the day!
Do not worry about having your photo taken. Trust me just concentrate on having FUN and you will look great!!!
