2pm - Getting Ready
Note: Ideally by the time we arrive, hair and make-up is already wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, it’s often getting ready!.

3:45 First Look
Note: The first look can take place at the getting ready location, ceremony, or reception location. It’s up to you, although we’re happy to make recommendations!
Bride & Groom + bridal party portraits.
4:00pm - Portraits
The ceremony takes place
(That's right! You're finally married!)
5:30pm Family Portraits
Note: We do family portraits right after the ceremony because everyone you need will be easy to grab. If you can give your family notice that we’ll be taking pictures immediately after the ceremony, that will also ensure that no one wanders off. We’ll help you create a list of family portraits before the big day.
During this time, the rest of your guests should head off to cocktail hour!
Additional Bridal Party and Bride & Groom Portraits
Note: Depending on what was taken before the ceremony, we might grab 1 or 2 more full bridal party shots. At the very least, we’ll grab a few shots of you at the ceremony site.
6:15pm Cocktail Hour
Note: The great thing about doing a first look is that it gives you more time at cocktail hour. We’ll grab some pictures of your guests while you enjoy the hour.
Introductions & First Dance
Welcome toasts & salads followed by speeches and entrees.
7:30pm Sunset Portraits
We’ll make sure to grab you two about 45 minutes before the sunsets. This is usually the best light of the day!
