About Kate Parker @ Kate Parker Weddings

Lara and Kate from Studio Nouveau share their advice on how to schedule your wedding day photography. Take a look at what they have to say!

Kate and I usually arrive to the bride one hour before she leaves for the ceremony. This gives us enough time to capture the details in the room, last hair and makeup touch-ups and bride putting on her dress and veil. Depending on the couple and time of year of the wedding determines when we do the formals and shots of the couple alone!

Option 1: If it’s summer in high gear and the sun is up until about 8 p.m. we usually do the formals immediately after the ceremony, usually the first 15 minutes of the cocktail hour, and then we use the last 45 minutes for the couple alone.

Option 2: If it’s an autumn wedding and the sun sets earlier, 5 p.m.-ish, then we try and schedule the formals and the couple photos before the ceremony. (Also takes one hour start to finish) Some couples hesitate at this option because they’re not sure if they want to see each other before the ceremony- totally understand that! We try and have a little “ceremony” for them that we call “the reveal.” The bride and groom will either have their backs toward each other, or hold hands on either side of a door frame, etc. something so we still capture that bewildered and surprised look on their faces when they turn to see each other! It’s usually quite emotional.

The infamous college friend photos: If there’s time left during the cocktail hour we’ll ask the bride to wrangle her girlfriends, if not I’ll assign the maid of honor or someone in the gaggle to wrangle everyone on the dance floor. Kate and I have a photo booth called Love. Note. Spot. which is a great remedy to the college friend photos, they can all write their messages and inside jokes all night!

Here’s a timeline we just finalized with a bride (it’s very official!). :grin:

3:30-4:30 p.m. Dress, makeup, final hair primping
4:30-5:15 p.m. Reveal the lovebirds, take killer photos, have a ton of fun
5:15-6 p.m. Touch up make-up, drink a beer, chillax
6-6:30 p.m. Ceremony
6:30-7:30 p.m. Cocktail (and pictures- few formals, mostly fun candids)
7:30 Reception, Party Time

Love. Note. Spot. will be available to your guests all night!

The photos look very fun. I like them holding the chalkboard. Seems like they enjoyed having pictures of themselves holding the board.

The chalkboard idea is filled with fun. This is a great souvenir for wedding. The guests can have a photo of themselves with their wackiest shot.
