Wedding Day Photography Worksheet
We've created this worksheet with lists and info sharing to help you communicate and better enable us to capture everything you hope to on your wedding day. We welcome your thoughts, ideas, and lists, although we understand they're not for everyone and that is just fine. This is all voluntary information, share as little or as much as you'd like. No problem to just "wing it" without lists on the wedding day if that's your style :)
HEADS UP! It's best to complete this on a computer instead of phone/ipad, it gets funky to use on mobile devices. It could take anywhere from 10-60 minutes to complete this worksheet- unfortunately there is not a "save for later" feature, so be sure to complete it all and SUBMIT before closing the window. If you aren't sure about anything or it doesn't apply to you, just leave it blank. After submitting the worksheet, we'll review it and let you know if we have questions or if we need a followup phone call or meeting.
There are services out there (The Knot, Wedding Wire, etc) which publish long, extensive photo lists- we encourage you to skim over those if you'd like, but find they are outdated for todays style of photography. Decades ago in the era of film, couples were be limited by their budget and film allotment- so they had to list all the major events and setup shots they wanted done. Today, the only limit is time and it's our job to photograph all the events (and more!) whether they are on a list or not. Lists can be helpful for certain parts of the day, particularly family/friends portraits when it's difficult to remember all the exact combinations you might want. Remember that photos are never guaranteed (due to unforeseen logistics and timing issues) but if there are certain images you'd really like, adding them to a list will ensure that we'll do everything possible to capture it and make sure it's not forgotten.
It's a good idea especially to list photos that aren't typical or expected such as: Group of college friends, a special relative, not so obvious but important details, etc. More obvious things that do not need to be listed are events like: the kiss, first dance, bouquet toss, etc.
Please make sure and familiarize yourself with the info on our Timeline Planning Guide before completing this worksheet.
