Before the ceremony (45 mn before or so): Boys get pictures with ILs and each other

After Ceremony (took roughly 30 mn): Bride & Groom, Bride & Groom w/familys, grandparents, etc, B&G with party, divided, etc

We didn’t do too many portriats but enough to get variety

We worked from large to small groups to get people on their way (so families, then parties)

We are not doing a first look either.

We’re starting photos 2.5 hours before the ceremony.  I’m doing some bridal shots, bridal party, my family, and his family.

Then he’ll come in about 1.5 hour before the ceremony and do the same.  That way the church is cleared out about 30 minutes before the ceremony begins in case we have any early arriving guests. 

My photographer said she could the photos with us, us and the bridal party, and us with our families after the ceremony and it would take about 30 minutes.

It rained on our day, so we did all pictures after the ceremony.   It was the normal 3 hr, “Catholic gap.”   We took an hour with family and wedding party, and about an hour together.  We did get fire truck pictures done too and they took another 20 minutes.

We did a first look but here is our timeline so you can see how long we took pictures.

Mt at location at 4, few minutes to get ready.  Had the first look and took pictures until 5:30.  Then after the ceremony, we only had time for a few pictures with just the two of us because most of the time we were taking pictures of guests and family members.

@blondie_bride: Yeah… we realized after we got the first few pros back that we didn’t have any pictures of just us that aren’t of the same kiss just from different angles. It totally slipped our minds. I woould say that 15-30 mn would be fine if you don’t want to travel around too much

@blondie_bride: We are on the same boat not doing the first look either and also have a catholic wedding. Our ceremony starts at 5pm because it’s a friday (date twin!) and the reception starts at 7pm but we are only having the short mass because he and his family are not catholic so it should only be around 30 mins and the venue is only 10mins from the church. I’m still worried that it is not enough time 🙁
