YES…. I didn’t b/c I just didn’t have the time.. But DO IT!

Let them know some places you’d like to go ahead of time so that they can get in their head how to “schedule” everything out.

You might have to have some pics done befor ethe ceremony to make it work… but it’s good to start thinking about that sooner than later

Making a List benefits you both b/c you for sure get the shots that you want and they don’t have to try and read your mind.

I am incredibly blessed that our photogs did as great as they did and only missed 1 shot that I wanted… I’ve seen where photog missed things that the bride really wanted.

so yes… make a list and talk to your photog about it =)

I think it would be fine. Just expect to pay a little more for time and travel, as photographers will probably ask for more money. I know I would. Are you talking about wedding pictures or engagement pictures? You should be fine on the e-pics, but wedding pics, there are so many places to go… ceremony location, reception location, so to add another picture location would probably call for more money. Just my opinion 🙂

Do it. Get the pictrues that you want. You are paying for it. We are driving about 15  minutes to get to a downtown area to take bridal party pictures.

Depends. If it’s somewhere nearby, then no worries. She/he is contracted for a specific number of hours. Just know that the commute would cut into the time you have contracted the photog for.

We have that problem as well. We’re getting ready at my house, driving 30 minutes downtown for pictures, 15 minutes to the church, and then 30 minutes to the reception. But there really isn’t another option because I live in the middle of no where, and the reception is also in the middle of nowhere.

If you build the drive time (with buffer!!) into the timing of your wedding day, it shouldn’t be a big deal. You will need to do pics before the ceremony unless you have the “Catholic gap”, though. We took pics at a state park about 20 mins away from our venue – we drove (but you could use a limo if you have it for the day).

Time wise shouldnt be an issue but the photographer may ask for a small travel fee.
