Should we do a Pre-reveal?

A pre-reveal is an opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony takes place. Although it’s not for everyone, I find that a planned first look allows the bride and groom to experience a very intimate moment on their wedding day. Also, it allows them to further express their most authentic emotions on their own, allows more time for photography and alleviates time pressures that are commonly associated with a wedding. Also, as a bonus you get to have more time to enjoy cocktail hour with your guests. There are all sorts of perks!


Do you take dance shots?

That’s where the fun is! I am right there with everyone on the dance floor like a goofy bad dancer with the camera.


How many hours do you suggest we set aside for wedding day photo’s?

The amount of time we suggest you set aside for photos depends on the time of day.

Preparation Shots – Duration: 1.5 hours 
Ideally we would have 45 minutes for the girls and 45 minutes with the guys.

Couples session – Duration: 1 hour to 1.5 hours
. I highly suggest doing this before the ceremony in conjunction with a “first look.” That way you can enjoy the rest of your day without having to worry about taking too much time out for photo’s. Also, this is when the makeup and hair are fresh. We’ll set up a first look moment so it’ll still be a surprise when you see each other. Be sure to give us at least a full hour so we can capture the amazing shots you see in our portfolio.

Family Formals – Duration: 1 hour
Have a list of pictures that you want with your family/friends right after the ceremony. Typically this is done at the altar but we can do it any location you’d like. Also, have one person from each side of the family that is really organized (and loud) to move people in and out of photos.

Bridal Party (Optional) – Duration: 0.5 hour to 1 hour. 
This is where we take the bridal party out for some fun shots. This is also nice to handle before the ceremony so that you can rest and enjoy your day afterwards.
