What is your photography style?

  1. Photojournalism is a reality-based approach to document real moments. Rather than posing for pictures, I will follow you throughout the day, capturing events as they naturally unfold. When needed, I will blend seamlessly into the background and become “invisible” to the experience. What you end up with are more candid moments. The best photojournalists are both experienced to anticipate the shot and also work very quickly to capture the fleeting story.
  2. Traditional Portraiture A classic style of posed photography often used for engagement and formal portraits, with a focus on good posture, natural expressions, and simple backgrounds. I will direct you in flattering and creative ways to keep it fun and get all of your desired formal pictures within a reasonable amount of time so you and your guests can enjoy the party! This method is best used for formal group shots and romantic portraits.
  3. Pretty Details These are the kinds of images you are seeing in bridal magazines, on wedding blogs, and all over Pinterest. Attention to the smallest details help tell the story and can include things like wedding rings, wedding invitation suite, all of the yummy food details, party favors, reception decor, personal items, etc. I will pay extra attention to lighting and styling including things like bridal gown details, straightening out wrinkles in pant legs, and making sure bouquets are held in the correct position.

Timeline of Events

Wedding coverage usually starts about 2.5 hours before the ceremony as the bride and groom are getting ready, and goes until 30 minutes after the last big event at the reception. For most of my weddings, this is a full 8 hour day. Listed below is a breakdown of what that can look like and the things I look for.

Getting Ready

  • Bride getting ready (final touches of hair and makeup)

  • Bride’s accessories (dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, garter, perfume, purse, vows, etc.)

  • Bride portraits alone

  • Bride w/ Bridesmaids

  • Groom getting ready

  • Groom’s accessories (suit, shoes, tie, socks, cufflinks, watch, vows, etc.)

  • Groom portraits alone

  • Groom w/ Groomsmen

  • Wedding + Engagement Rings (cleaned and with the bride)

  • Bridal Bouquet (suggested delivery to bridal suite)

  • Boutonnieres (designate someone to pin these on the guys)

  • Wedding invitations (two complete sets, 1 stamped and addressed to bride and groom)

First Look

Some couples choose to exchange gifts, say a prayer, or just enjoy a quiet moment together before the day unfolds. A first look will also allow the opportunity for more romantic and formal group pictures before the ceremony, freeing up more time later in the day.

Romantics & Formal Portraits

Immediate Family 1-3 minutes per small group, 2-4 minutes for each group up to 8 people, and 5+ minutes for larger groups of 8+ people. (I suggest doing formal portraits immediately following the first look or right after the ceremony).

  • B&G with wedding officiant (optional, as this will be captured during the ceremony)

  • B&G with parents of the bride

  • B&G with parents of the bride and siblings

  • B&G with parents of the groom

  • B&G with parents of the groom and siblings

  • B&G with both sets of parents together

  • B&G with both sets of parents together and siblings

  • B&G with immediate family members

  • B&G with bridesmaids and groomsmen

  • B&G with children attendants

  • Extended Family: I suggest keeping family formals to immediate family only and pictures with extended family members as you see them during reception. If you would like to include extended family in the formals, then use the same timing calculations as for immediate family.

  • The rest of the time for formal portraits may be used for Romantic portraits of the Bride & Groom together


  • Ceremony décor and details (at least 20-30 minutes before the ceremony before guests arrive)

  • Processional - Bride walking down the aisle and Groom's reaction

  • Bride and Groom together, vows, ring exchange, kiss, guest candids

  • Recessional - Couple coming back down the aisle


  • Cocktail hour (décor, food, drinks, candids)

  • Reception space (before guests enter)

  • Bride & Groom's Grand Entrance

  • First Dance(s) (Mother/ Son, Father/ Daughter, Bride/ Groom)

  • Toast(s)

  • Bouquet / Garter Toss

  • Cake / Cake Cutting

  • Entertainment

  • Couple’s departure
