Hooray! You're all booked and I can't wait to spend your wedding day with you! Here is my standard questionnaire so I can know the details and timeline for your wedding day.

A few notes for planning purposes:

--I like to tell the full story of your wedding day, beginning with documenting both the bride and groom preparation. With this in mind, I prefer to start coverage time during the preparation part of the day. This enables me to preserve the memories from your full day, as well as allowing me to document the details like your dress, shoes, jewelry, etc.

--Setting aside around 30 minutes each for bridal party photos and family photos is a good rule of thumb. 

--I would suggest at least an hour for formals of the bride and groom, more depending on if you have several different locations you'd like to use! 

--I like to recommend that you plan for a good bit of padding time between the last scheduled photos and the actual wedding (ideally wrapping up photos at least thirty minutes before the ceremony), so that the pace of the day stays relaxed and people have time to get freshened up before the ceremony.

--As I'm sure you've noticed from my other work, I'm a huge fan of utilizing natural light when possible, since it makes for much happier photos, so I try to keep that in mind when selecting locations for photos, including the formal bridal party and family photos.

--I've found it to be super helpful for the bride to plan to have a personal attendant as the designated driver/assistant when taking photos of the bride and groom, especially as she can provide an extra set of eyes to make sure the dress, veil, etc, stay as they should.
