Please use this form below to tell me as much about your day as you can. I realize that it might not be entirely relevant as every wedding is different but hopefully you can use it to let me know where people will be, and when, and what is happening! The more I know about the day in advance the better!

The idea is that I can have a comprehensive timeline so I can put together my own itinerary and ensure I am always in the right place at the right time and that your wedding photography coverage is totally awesome!

Here are a few tips to know before your wedding day;

  1. Make sure there is natural light in the room where the bride will be getting ready. This makes a world of a difference in your images! Promise!
  2. If possible, try to have all the bridal details together before the photographer arrives ( Dress, shoes, jewelry, bouquet, garter, veil, etc). This will make the detail shots faster!
  3. Keep the area near the window free of trash, bags, snacks, etc. This will be where the bride will be putting on her dress! We don't need your Gatorade bottle in the bridal portraits :).
  4. Allow more time than you think you need to get ready! It's better to be safe than RUSHED!
  5. Relax and have FUN! You're getting MARRIED!!

If you're sharing a first look I will need to know to plan ahead. If you're working with a planner, they can forward this information to me if that's easier.

If sharing a first look, what is your preference on how private you'd like it to be? This is your decision, and we ar asking you in advance so that we can ensure that your preference is honored on your special day. Please let us know if you would like your first look completely private, family and or bridal party can watch from a distance or anyone can watch.

If so, do you prefer this before or after the bride and groom first look?

Here is a reminder of the details that we photograph at each wedding: Dress, veil, all 3 rings, shoes, bouquet, earrings, full invitations suite

Please list any specific group photo lists you want here. Obviously it is your day, and I will do my best to get all the photos you want, but keep in mind that even with the best ushering in the world it can still take 4-5 minutes to find and arrange a group of people for a photo - so try keep the numbers of shots small - no more than 5 or 6 is ideal.

During dinner is the only time we will be taking a short break to eat. I do ask that if I am being contracted for more than 5 hours that meals be provided to myself and my second photographer. If you did not plan for this can you please advise so we can arrange something.

It is really helpful to find as much out about your suppliers as I can. Please add any suppliers instagram handles below (or just the business name if you don't know their socials) and just leave the ones out that don't apply to you. This includes wedding planner, videography, caterers, cake, flowers, stationary, entertainment and anyone else involved in your day.
