Wedding Planning Tips
What can I expect on the day?
I’ve seen so many unexpected things happen at weddings that I could write a book. Weddings can be stressful and the day moves unbelievably quick, one minute you’re preparing for the day and having breakfast, the next you’re leaving the reception venue as your wedding guests farewell you. They say it’s a whirlwind of a day so be prepare for a slight amount of stress and some last minute decision making.
What should I pack?
I suggest a sewing kit including pins for the corsages, I’ve even seen a bride’s wedding dress zip tear the fabric and needed to be literally sewn into her dress with only minutes to spare to make it to the ceremony on time. You can’t be over-prepared for a wedding day!
I would also advise packing water and some nibblies for the location shoot. There’s a great deal of talking involved with the ceremony, congratulations from guests and family photos, you need to be rehydrated and remember as tasty as beer and wine is, it dehydrates you so don’t forget the H20.
Most of all, relax and take everything in. Like I said, the day flies at incredible speeds so don’t forget to take a breather every now and again to enjoy what you have created.
When should I start my wedding ceremony?
Wedding Reception and Ceremony starting times are dependent on several things. Because of this, I have made a dedicated post for this question: Wedding ceremony and reception starting times.
How many photos will I receive?
It depends on how long your wedding goes for, how long we are there, where all the locations and venues are and the travel time involved to get to each spots. You will typically receive between 400-800 images as we don’t limit the amount of photos you receive.
Do you supply the high resolution files so I can print the wedding photos myself?
Yes I certainly do. The full set of high resolution JPEGs come inclusive in every package. You will be able to print as many as you like to whatever size you like.
What kind of coverage will you be giving us on the day?
I start photographing before the wedding ceremony while the bride and groom are getting ready for the day. I typically spend around 7 hours photographing, this includes the bride and groom’s preparation, wedding ceremony, unlimited locations and the start of the reception.
How long until I am able to view my wedding photos?
Allow 2 weeks for post-production and once your images are ready to view we upload them to a password protected online gallery at no extra cost for your viewing pleasure. Your friends and family can easily log in and view your wedding day, this comes in very handy as most loved ones live in other towns, states and countries and this way they can relive your special day without moving from their couch!
Within that two week period I will also post a couple of images from the day as a little preview on my blog and Facebook page so you have something to check out while you wait for your images to be processed.
