Photo Tip for Smart Brides:


Planning is the key to help make your wedding photography go from ordinary to extraordinary!


We always strongly recommend doing a walk-through of the venue with your photographer a few weeks before the wedding. This gives you chance to see where to do portraits, talk about the portraits you want and plan out a timeline for the wedding.


It also allows the photographer find out first hand if there are any venue restrictions, what the available light is and if there needs to be travel involved for portrait locations. If you are having an outdoor wedding - talking about a rain plan during this time is imperative.


Doing this walk through makes everyone more relaxed and gives you another chance to get to know your photographer.
