Brides, I can’t stress enough………..please please please….PRETTY please (notice how I made them pretty)….allow enough time between your ceremony and your reception so that you don’t feel rushed during the portraits. I think this often gets overlooked and speaking from a photographers point of view…..when you give enough time, you will LOOOVE your photos even more so. One thing to take into consideration is drive time between locations. Katie and Ethan left plenty of time between to get the family portraits taken at the church, fun photos of them driving around in the trolley, enough time to make a pit stop at Lucerne Street and the incline AND they got to enjoy the trolley they paid for. Every location we stopped at screamed “katie and ethan”. (Parks full of pretty flowers aren’t the ONLY places for portraits ya know…just sayin!! )
The time was stress free and full of laughs. The whole wedding party was fantastic….and as you can see from the photos….they were FUN!
Whether you’re working with a wedding planner or not-take into consideration how much time you leave to have your portraits taken. It’s another way to make the day more “YOU” and besides…you’ve paid for your photographer…..put them to use!! 🙂
