Will this be an unplugged wedding? It is advised that cell phones, ipads, and video equipment(s) aside from the use of a contracted professional are not allowed at the ceremony to focus on the bride and groom as they unite as husband and wife. Additionally, this will be beneficial for the photographer and videographer as they edit photographs and the video of the wedding. Please Google the benefits of unplugged weddings.

Since a wedding day is a full workday for the photographer and second shooter (if any). We ask that the bride and groom reserve a plate of food for the photographer(s), which they will eat before everyone gets served. The photographer will utilize the time that everyone is eating to transfer pictures taken to a computer. Please check off that you understand. If you do not agree, please allow the photographer(s) a dinner break to leave for food.

We want your wedding photos to be flawless. The photographer will be unobtrusive and ready to capture your special moments.

Here are some suggestions for you:

  • Avoid glossy lipstick and consider foundation or powder that will reduce the chance of having a shiny face.

  • In order to allow for a private photo session of bride and groom, we will need at least half an hour of your time alone with the photographer.

  • Be kind to ensure the presence of all the family members required at your wedding photos. Plan for about 5 minutes per photo for shots with fewer than 14 people, about 10 minutes per photo for shots with more than 14 people. It always takes some time to gather people together and pose them so that everyone can be seen, etc

  • Before the wedding day, inform the people you want in posed photos where and when they will be needed for pictures.

  • Pre-assign a family member or friend who knows the people to be in the pictures to round them up for the photos (have a list and please send the list to the photographer as well).

  • Getting people where they need to be for the photos is by far the most time consuming part of group shots.

  • Please, make sure the cutting of the cake occurs within the booking time.

  • Remind family members or friends who will sit upfront to not get in the photographer’s way when the first kiss take place.
