Over the years I have photographed a lot of weddings and in doing so, I have learned a lot about the various ways to make your wedding day run smoothly.  I want to take some time and share with you one of the most helpful things I have learned during my time so far as a wedding photographer: the importance of having a wedding day timeline!

From a photography standpoint, getting those beautiful swoon worthy images does take careful planning to make sure we have the time we need for stunning photos while still ensuring that you have plenty of time to spend with friends and loved ones. But I believe that there is a balance to this – and the secret is the wedding day timeline.
