I’ll be honest, when you’re planning your wedding, trying to figure out the wedding day timeline can end up being a real pain in the you know what. The good news is, I’m always here to help you get it all sorted out! You’ve got your ceremony and reception time down, you have your list of wedding day photo locations ready to go, and now it’s time to figure out another super important part of the day: getting those romantic, staged photos of just the two of you. When we work on your timeline together, you’ll hear me refer to these as the “romantics” because that’s exactly what they are – photos of just you and your significant other soaking up your wedding day bliss!
For almost every wedding that I shoot, I make sure to set aside enough time to get some great romantics. Sometimes I don’t have as much time as I would like and it breaks my heart (which is why I’m writing this blog)! These are the photos you’ll look back on the most and I want to make sure you have the most beautiful damn romantics and plenty of them – which is why it is SO important to make sure we set aside a minimum of thirty minutes for them. Now I know that may seem like a lot of time and with all that goes into your wedding and you may even have a wedding coordinator saying to cut this shorter, but trust me when I say you don’t want to rush this part. Not only will this be the last time you’ll be alone together before you’re whisked away into the wedding day festivities, but it’s an intimate time for you and your partner to get those dreamy photos that you’ll look back on for years to come.
These portraits will mark this special moment in time and help create lasting memories from your wedding day that will last a lifetime. The good news is that, with a little planning and preparation, you can ensure that your romantics get all the time they need. Also, at the end of the day remember it’s your big day – so always do what works best for you and your spouse so you can enjoy every minute!
