So what time should Photography start?

Posted on Jul 6, 2017 by


Neptune_NJ_WeddingWedding planning … it can get complicated right? I know!! I talk to many couples and I go to many many weddings so I see all the work that has to be put into it. I understand! I feel your pain! That’s exactly why from start to finish I take pride in making the photography end of it as easy breezy as possible for you.  From my website which has a pricing calculator package creator, to booking the date, to photography on your wedding day, I do everything possible to make things go really smooth. My reward is at the end of the night, when I say goodbye to the Bride and Groom and I can feel the relief in their eyes and in their hugs that photography was much easier and relaxed than they expected.

So along those lines and with all of that in mind I decided to create this nifty flowchart below to make planning photography on your wedding day pretty straight forward (and fun!).

Usually one of the first things I try to figure out with my clients during a consultation is what time would be ideal on their wedding day for photography to start. Once a starting time is determined everything else starts falling into place. But to figure out the ideal starting time, there are a few things that need to be sorted out first and that’s exactly what the flowchart below does. Every wedding is slightly different than another but in general this flowchart should give you a pretty solid idea of how early you will need photography to start. Its good to point out that these time frames are specifically for my photography. Other photographers may have different time frames. But hey you’re on my website, so other photographers don’t really matter right!?!

So if you were in doubt about how early photography should start, well you’re only seconds away from figuring that out. Check out the flowchart (click to enlarge) and feel free to share with other couples that are planning their wedding day. If you have any questions about this topic or the flowchart feel free to email or call me. Enjoy.
