— Final Details Questionnaire —

Hi, there! Your wedding day is coming quickly and I’d love to get some more information from you so that I’m sure to capture your big day simply and beautifully.

To help you better answer some of these questions, I’m including the approximate time I'd like to photograph each event.

If You’re Doing a First Look
Details + Getting Ready — 2 hours
First Look — 30 Minutes
Wedding Party — 30 Minutes
Family Formals — 30 Minutes
Reception Details — 15 Minutes (I'll take these while you're in hiding just before the ceremony)

Bride + Groom Just Married/Sunset — 30 minutes

If You’re Not Doing a First Look:
Details + Getting Ready — 2 hours
Reception Details — 15 Minutes (I'll take these while you're in hiding just before the ceremony)
Family, Wedding Party, and Bride + Groom after Ceremony — 1 Hour
Bride + Groom at Sunset — 30 Minutes

*Taking you away for some more bride and groom photos at sunset is a must if you’d like amazing images in that beautiful, soft, golden light. I’ve found the best time to take these is just after you’ve finished dinner. Since you're served first, your guests will still be eating and you can sneak away for 15-30 minutes. No one will even notice you’re gone! If you have dinner planned long before sunset, no problem, we can sneak away during the reception as well. Just be sure to let your planner and DJ know.

Comments

Please note I don’t shoot from a shot list, simply because I want to be ready to capture every amazing moment and detail of your day, rather than have my face buried in a list! Rest assured, I’ll cover all of the major events, however, is there anything of special significance or out of the ordinary I should know about?
