   Wedding Photography for Brides and Grooms Planning Tips.

  DO let your photographer have time to create photos, and .. 
• Have fun!

   • Have a manicure/pedicure the day before your wedding.

  • Drink plenty of water. It is going to be a long day. You will be dehydrating more rapidly due to being busy all day.

  • Leave some slack time in your wedding day timeline.

On wedding days things do not always go according to plan. Often there are unforeseen delays. It would be a shame if your photography time was cut short. Because time did not allow for delays.

• Leave ample time for your family photographs. 

Count on approximately three-to-five minutes for each grouping photographed.

• Bring your photography permit if you are having your photos taken in a public park. This is obtained from a City Hall.

• Have a backup plan. Often referred to as Plan B. Especially in case of a heavy rainfall on your wedding day. Your photographer can help suggest venues that are suitable.

• For the Bride-to-be have your maid/matron-of-honor help you with your gown. Until the ceremony is over. After you’re married that is suppose to be your husband’s job.

Wedding Photography ideas and tips for your Planning guidelines.


• For the Groom-to-be get your haircut the day before your wedding. Ideally have your haircut one-to-two weeks prior to your wedding date.

• Drink too much alcohol prior to the reception. This will prevent excessive dehydration and fatigue. Especially on hot days.

• Rush your photographer by not providing ample time for family shots. Or bridal shots.

• You have spent a lot of time and money on this day. Let your photographer have ample time to create special memories for you.
