Pre-Wedding Planning


Timeline & Portrait Checklist

2 to 4 months before your wedding

We spend a significant amount of time preparing for and planning photographs for your wedding day. The pre-planning helps us to save time on your wedding day because we know where different events will happen and have a good timeline of the day.  As part of the personalized attention we give each wedding couple, we provide customizable timeline templates and a thorough family portrait checklist to assist in your, and our, pre-wedding planning.

Final Planning

The Week before your wedding

Darren spends many pre-wedding hours thinking about and planning the posed bride and groom portraits to give you more time to enjoy your guests. Mandy organizes the family portrait checklist and prepares her emergency kit. We pack our gear, and get a good night's rest.


The Site Visit

During the month before your wedding

To prepare for a wedding, we like to have a pre-wedding day chat and meeting. If Darren has not been to the venue for your ceremony or reception before, we like to visit these locations.  Our site visits can be done with or without you and your future spouse, but we prefer to do the site visit with the two of you.

Many of our couples appreciate the time during the site visit with us to iron out details. We appreciate meeting with you and your future spouse because it gives us one more opportunity to see your interactions with one another outside of the excitement and nerves of your wedding day.


The result?

Authentic, romantic, and timeless photographs.
