How long do bride and groom, family and bridal party portraits take on the wedding day and when is the best time to do them?
Wedding portraits normally take approximately 1- 1.5 hours on the wedding day depending upon the number of must have family formals. I usually allow about 20 minutes for family formals, 20-30 minutes for wedding party and 45 min for your bride and groom images. The best time to do these is 1-2 hours prior to sunset but it also depends on if you are doing a first look or if you are having a traditional ceremony. I would love to speak with you about the perfect timeline for your unique day so contact me today!

What is a first look?
A first look is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time prior to the ceremony.  This is a private and intimate moment between the bride and groom. This decision is entirely up to the couple, however many couples now are opting for a first look to get pictures done early and focus more on spending time with their guests after the ceremony and enjoying their cocktail hour and reception.

Why do you recommend a first look?
A first look is important if you are planning on having a sunset ceremony and leaving little to no daylight for pictures after. I encourage my couples to do a first look so that pictures can be done outdoors in natural light prior to the ceremony, then after the ceremony a few more romantic sunset shots and then you are free to enjoy your cocktail reception. Benefits of a first look include time alone together, emotional reactions, opportunity for more images, you will be refreshed and all your nerves will be gone, and your big day will last longer with more memories to make!

How will we know the photography schedule/timeline for the day?
Once you become a #JBPbride I will send you a questionnaire to fill out with all your fun details! Once I receive this back we can set up a call or meeting to finalize your photography timeline. Once you book me, I am always here along the way and love to be apart of your planning process prior to the final timeline being put into place.
