THE DETAILS

We know that since we sent our first wedding questionnaire, a lot more of your wedding plans have been solidified (and perhaps even changed). We are ready for all of the final details! The following questionnaire will help us plan the timeline you’ll need for photos, and will also provide us with details about your wedding party, your families, and your venue. We'll also ask for information about your other vendors so we can be sure to give appropriate credit to them when sharing or blogging your images. There is also some important information within the questionnaire, so be sure to read it thoroughly and answer thoughtfully.   

This is a gender-neutral form, so we ask that you please identify yourselves as Spouse 1 & Spouse 2.

 Settle in with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine- thanks so much for taking the time to fill this out!

THE PEOPLE
GETTING READY
PRE-CEREMONY + FIRST LOOK
If you're having an evening affair with your ceremony leading right into a cocktail hour or the reception, we usually recommend having a first look earlier in the day to ensure enough time for wedding party photos, family photos, and (most importantly) photos of the two of you!
Are you planning on having a first look? *
If you are planning a first look, would you like to also do family photos prior to the ceremony (if time permits)? *
THE CEREMONY
Tell us about your ceremony. Is it: *
Are you planning a receiving line? *
If your answer is yes, there are a couple of things to think about. If you have a large guest list or are short on time in between the ceremony and reception (or a combination of both), we would urge you to instead consider greeting your guests at the cocktail hour or reception. Receiving lines can take a lot of time, as guests like to linger and chat. If you need advice on whether or not you have enough time for a receiving line, we are more than happy to help!
FAMILY FORMALS, WEDDING PARTY PHOTOS, + PORTRAITS
Family formals have the potential to be the most hectic time of the day. in order to minimize the time and chaos, we ask that you provide us with a detailed list of everyone you want included in the family formals. If time is in short supply (for example, many churches will only allow a certain amount of time after the ceremony before they need everyone to leave), then we suggest sticking to immediate family only and ditching the large group shots with aunts, uncles, and cousins.
THE COCKTAIL HOUR
If you're planning on having a cocktail hour, please note that we generally do not cover it, as we are often doing portraits or setting up for the reception during that time. If you would like cocktail hour coverage, it is important that we arrange to either complete your portraits before the ceremony, or schedule enough time between the end of the ceremony and the start of the cocktail hour to complete your photography needs.
