Groups of friends or extended family to be photographed with bride and groom during cocktail hour or reception. Tip: Leave special friend groupings for more casual posed shots during cocktail hour or the reception to save some time during portraits.
Dinner Arrangements *
Tip: for an optimal image collection, place us at a discreet table in the corner of the room. This way special moments aren't missed! p.s. please include second shooter in these arrangements, when applicable.
Describe your colors, theme, and overall vision for the day. Be sure to include any custom details that you would love to see captured in your collection.
Overall, what are your expectations of your wedding day photography?
