Why You Should Consult Your Wedding Photographer

Why You Should Consult Your Wedding Photographer

The wedding day timeline needs to be planned well before D-day, so that the wedding becomes absolutely stress-free and perfectly enjoyable for the bride and groom and their families and guests. When prior care is taken to blend various fun stuff for your guests, as well as key moments, your wedding day will run smoothly.

But it is essential that you wedding photographer is involved in your planning to ensure to get numerous chances to shot all those valuable moments as well as all the details you’ve probably spent month to design, plan, shop on Etsy. First of all, the wedding photographer should be informed all the details about the timings of the arrival of the bride and the groom to their getting ready venue, and when you are expecting to leave for the ceremony.

Why You Should Consult Your Wedding Photographer about the wedding day timeline

The photographer should be given plenty of time to take the photographs of all the rare moments, like the bride putting on her wedding veil and her bridesmaids may be helping her in fitting her wedding gown nicely, or the bride putting on her shoes, like Cinderella and waiting for her prince charming to come get her for the I do’s. Please always add an extra 15 minutes on top of everything. Yes, everything! You never know if someone is running late, Aunt Bertha is struck in traffic or if hair and makeup runs late. And trust me, it does more often than not. You’ve probably picked a venue that you love and is gorgeous so you’ll want some brilliant photos of the whole place shot by your photographer. So that means your photographer has to be there before all the guests arrive in order to photograph it untouched. Add an extra 15 minutes.


Apart from the ceremony, the cozy moments of the bride and the groom alone, kissing each other and getting into their getaway car, you’d also want photos of the bride with her bridesmaids and of the groom with his best men. And of course, family formals. So you see, it’s starting to add up. What about all the candid stuff? Yeah, good question. If you have a large number of guests, you’d might wanna consider having at least 2 photographers so they can shoot simultaneously.

You’d probably want amazing photos of the two of you enjoying your reception party and dancing together or holding each other playfully, so that they you’ll be reminded of the romance years from now. The pictures of the guests eating are the ones you might wanna skip on though. No one looks good eating, hahaha. We always wanna try to capture a few shots of the bride and groom’s first dance, it’s an unforgettable moment and a perfect ending to an extraordinary day. So this sums up why you should consult your wedding photographer about your wedding day timeline and if you have questions, feel free to shoot us an email. Thank you to David and Gloria who graciously invited us to document their wedding at Dalarö Skans July 11th 2015.
