Tips

Your Wedding Photography Timeline

Your wedding photography timeline

Here are my top tips to help you tackle your wedding photography day timeline!

First and foremost, Plan for the LIGHT. I work with all my couples to make sure that we aren’t doing the location/bridal party photos at the height of the day {when the sun is the harshest} and that we have plenty of time for gorgeous sunset photographs. Check sunset time for your wedding day! You need to ensure you have lots of available light to produce beautiful images. Once the sun goes down you have about 5-10 minutes left of available light. Mind you the ten minutes surrounding sunset time is what we photographers call the golden hour, its divine light.

Wedding cakes

Wedding cake, so much to choose from. Its one of the oldest wedding traditions. As weddings now are days are so personalised, the choice for the wedding cake is truly limitless. Gone are the days of the simple fruit cake covered in white icing. Thank goodness, just quietly!! Multiple layers are definitely the range with an eclectic array or flavour’s now available. The wedding I photographed last weekend had a really unique wedding cake a fig and almond cake with a beautiful ganache frosting (definitely not low fat I can tell you), but it was divine and definitely original!

Should I have a Wedding Videographer?

I get asked this question often by couples who book me to take their wedding photos. Everyone is different. But let me ask you this? Will you regret not having one? That is the real question you need to ask yourself!

I myself was not that interested in a wedding video, but I knew I would one day regret it, so we had one, it wasn’t edited, no fancy highlights and special effects, just the coverage, as it happened on the day.

I loved it, it’s the real thing, its how the guests saw my wedding on the day.

Engagement Photography Sessions.

Why I like them!

I absolutely love engagement photography sessions! I get couples tell me all the time they “hate  having their photos taken”. To me, that statement is  a challenge….. I want to make sure at the end of an engagement session, couples have not only had a great time, but have no more anxiety at all, about being  in front of the camera.  I really  notice the difference in the couples attitude and demeanour on the wedding day if they had had their photos taken previously.

Bridal hair and make up:

This post is for the women! So let’s talk about one of the most time consuming yet important aspects of your wedding day: Bridal hair and make up!

Every time you view your photographs, your memories of that day will be reflected through your facial expressions and the quality of your hair and makeup.

Your hairstyle and makeup need to be finished professionally, unrushed and with attention to detail at every stage.

A trial prior to your wedding day allows you to see what your hair and make-up, and your bridesmaids hair and makeup will look like on your wedding day. Most importantly a trial allows you to plan your appointment and make sure you leave the salon, on time, relaxed and with the look that you want.
