Shot List Questionnaire
This will help us plan for your wedding portraits. Keep in mind that portraits take time, so the more combinations of people you’ll want, the more time we’ll need to set aside. We can also do more informal group shots during the reception.
You can expect to spend about 2-3 minutes per group, so 10 different combinations may take ~30 minutes. We’re happy to spend as much time with you on your portraits as you wish, as long as you have dedicated time into your timeline and things are running on schedule. We can help this run quicker and smoother if you have a close friend or family member who can assist in gathering groups of people for the shots.
Bride and Groom (couple) portraits would ideally get at least 20-30 minutes aside from group portraits. Individual portraits of Bride and Groom would ideally be done before the ceremony.
Thanks for taking the time to share this information to help us help your day run smoothly.
The list below is for formal portraits. Other typical shots, such as bride getting her makeup done, groom buttoning his jacket, key ceremony shots, reception moments, such as first dance, etc. are what we typically plan to document throughout the day. If you have special details you’d like us to be aware of or would like special documentation of, please feel free to let us know at any time.
Also, please don’t feel pressured about any of this! One of our best abilities is that of working on the fly. If you haven’t chosen a spot for your first look, we can help with that. If you aren’t sure how or when to get photos with your college friends and favorite co-workers, snag us any time and we’ll get what you need!
And always remember, breathe and smile!
