Getting ready

This is kind of hard. We need to considerate three pin point. There are the groom house, the bride house, and the ceremony site. If it is far of each other, we can do early for the groom because groom is a little bit easier getting ready, They can just put it on and put it out . There is other choice which is both of them from the same hotel just different room. You can still maintain not seeing each other. As long as you can hold it up.

Walking down the aisle

There are three subjects that being meet in short time. The bride is coming down to altar. The groom is waiting in excited, some tears can come too. Even the parents can be showed some emotion.  Some might be not be captured. We as photographer do not want to miss anything.

Detailed shot

It is depend on timeline and church time. Typical time for reception is 7 p.m. If the church or ceremony is fall at 2-4 p.m. then it is kind of late for doing bridal party photo and detailed. It is not possible but it push it to limit. You need to re-arrange the timeline a bit. Either you do bridal party early during the day then go to ceremony place then you can still doing the bridal party at the church or the ceremony place. Some church said that you cannot meet before the ceremony started. Ideally, three hours gap is good. Two hours for bridal party and one hour for detailed shot at the reception. The reason two hours for bridal party is a lot of walking will be involve. If we doing it like rush, the wedding party tend to not happy about it. They feel like obligated and cranky usually. That is why two hours is perfect time. Beside we need to consider driving time from point A to point B.
