Timeline with first look...
12 P. M. - Getting Ready
Brynn arrives at Bride’s getting ready location and Aaron arrives at Groom’s getting ready location.
Note: Ideally by the time we arrive, hair and make-up is already wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, it’s often HAMU.
1:15 P. M. - Guys depart
Groom + groomsmen depart for ceremony site.
1:30 P.M. - Ladies depart
Bride and bridesmaids depart for ceremony location
1:45 P.M. - First Look
The first look takes place.
Note: The First Look can take place at the getting ready location, ceremony, or reception location. It’s up to you! Although we’re happy to make recommendations.
2 P.M. - Portraits
Bride & Groom + bridal party portraits.
3 P.M. - Ceremony
The ceremony takes place.
3:30 P.M. - Family Portraits
Note: We do family portraits right after the ceremony because everyone you need will be easy to grab. If you can give your family notice that we’ll be taking pictures immediately after the ceremony, that will also ensure that no one wanders off. We’ll help you create a list of family portraits before the big day.
4 P.M. - Portraits
Additional Bridal Party and Bride & Groom Portraits
Note: Depending on what was taken before the ceremony, we might grab 1 or 2 more full bridal party shots. At the very least, we’ll grab a few shots of you at the ceremony site.
5:15 P.M. - Cocktail Hour
Note: The great thing about doing a First Look is that it gives you more time at cocktail hour. We’ll grab some pictures of your guests while you enjoy the hour.

Introductions & First Dance
6:30 - Dinner
