Sample Timeline of Events

Wedding coverage usually starts 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.

  1. Getting Ready
  2. First Look (optional)
  3. B&G Romantics
  4. Family Formals Portraits
  5. Ceremony
  6. Reception

1) Getting Ready

  • Bride getting ready (final touches of hair and makeup)
  • Bride’s accessories (dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, garter, perfume, purse, vows, etc.)
  • Bride alone
  • Bride w/ Bridesmaids
  • Groom getting ready
  • Groom’s accessories (suit, shoes, tie, socks, cufflinks, watch, vows, etc.)
  • Groom alone
  • Groom w/ Groomsmen
  • Engagement and Wedding Bands (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)

Recommended time 60-90 minutes

2) First Look (optional)

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.

Recommended time 10-15 minutes

3) B&G Romantics

Romantic portraits of the Bride & Groom together- usually done after the first look or after all of the family formals are completed. Daytime and sunset is my favorite time to photograph these, but we can also do more dramatic portraits at night time.

Recommended time 30-60 minutes

4) Family Formal Portraits

Immediate Family 1-3 minutes per small group, 2-4 minutes for each group up to 8 and 5+ minutes for larger groups of 8+ people. (immediately following first look or ceremony is recommended).

  • Bride & Groom with wedding officiant (optional)
  • Bride & Groom with parents of the bride
  • Bride & Groom with parents of the groom
  • Bride & Groom with both sets of parents together
  • Bride & Groom with immediate family members
  • Bride & Groom with bridesmaids and groomsmen
  • Bride & Groom 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.

Recommended time 20-45 minutes

4) Ceremony

  • Ceremony décor and details (at least 20-30 minutes before ceremony)
  • Processional - Bride walking down the aisle and Groom's reaction
  • Bride and Groom together, vows, ring exchange, kiss
  • Recessional - Couple coming back down the aisle

5) Reception

Mostly candids for the rest of the evening.

  • Cocktail hour, décor, hors d'oeuvres, drinks, guests
  • Reception space, wide shot without people (photographers need to get in there before guests arrive)
  • Reception details, escort cards, centerpieces, plated food, favors, guest sign in area
  • Bride & Groom's Grand Entrance
  • First Dance(s) Mother/ Son, Father/ Daughter, Bride/ Groom- in this order
  • Toast(s)
  • Bouquet / Garter Toss
  • Cake / Cake Cutting
  • Entertainment
  • Couple’s departure
