How to create your wedding day timeline

We encourage all of our couples to create and share their wedding day timeline with us before their wedding. Having this timeline really helps things go smoothly, and ensures that all those involved in their big day are all on the same page.  Quite often though, many of our couples are unsure what a typical timeline looks like and don't really know the best way to go about creating one. That's why I wanted to create this post, in hopes providing a tips and a starting point for all the brides who might need a little help!

2016 columbus, ohio fall mini sessions

What's a mini session? Well, it's a 20 mins session where we focus on you and your family, making sure you're  feeling comfortable and confident while we create beautiful images to capture your genuine personalities. Our ultimate goal is to document your family and to tell your story.

We're natural light photographers, and we put emphasis on editorial and documentary style images - like the ones you've seen here on our blog. Since we shoot portrait sessions using natural or available light our goal is to capture your portraits during a time called "golden hour". This is a unique time in each day when daylight is looks warmer and softer - which we totally love!

One of my favorite things about being being a wedding photographer is seeing all the beautiful women in their lovely gowns!

Pair a gorgeous gown, with breath taking florals, and my eyes turn into emoji hearts instantly. That love, translates into a love of bridal portrait sessions as well.
