The following are already included in wedding photo coverage. But please check the items that are especially important to you:
Pre-Ceremony: Anything you'd like to add to the Pre-Ceremony/Getting ready list that wasn't already listed? Any special Details we should know? Ceremony Site: Anything you'd like to add to the list above from the Ceremony Site that wasn't already listed? Any special Details we should know? Formal Portraits: Anything you'd like to add to the list above from the Formal Portraits that wasn't already listed? Any special Details we should know?

We want your wedding photos to be flawless. We will be unobtrusive and ready to capture your special moments. We like to set up a pose and then have everyone act natural and interact. Here are a few things to keep in mind for the big day:
Avoid glossy lipstick and consider foundation or powder that will reduce the chance of having a shiny face. Please note mineral makeup can cause unflattering effects with flash due to elements that reflect light in them. Glittery and shimmering powder is also a bad choice for the entire bridal party.
In order to allow for a private photo session of bride and groom, we will need at least half an hour of your time alone with the photographer. This can be done before or after the ceremony.
It takes time to gather family members for photos. Pre-assign a family member or friend who knows the people to be in the pictures, so they can round them up for the photos. And have a list. Getting people where they need to be for the photos is the most time-consuming part. I’ve added one last column just for you to write down any additional notes, details, anything that comes to your mind that you would like me to know! Submit
