Pre-Wedding Questionnaire

Your wedding day is almost here! Yay!! I can’t wait to be a part of your day! These questions make sure I’m able to capture your day as smoothly and easily as possible. Thanks for taking the time to fill it out. Don’t know all the answers just yet? Don’t worry! I like to send this out well in advance to get you thinking, so I’ll check back in with you to make sure I get a completed copy two weeks before your wedding (at the latest).

This is crucial to making sure I can capture your day! If you'd like me to help plan out your timeline to maximize your photo time, let me know and we can jump on Skype or a phone call and work it out together! :)
If you don’t have a professional wedding coordinator, I just ask that you designate one family member or friend as your "wedding coordinator" for the day. This person will be someone that I can check in with throughout the day to provide an easy, worry-free day for you.

I highly recommend a First-Look for all Fall/Winter Weddings in order to maximize your photo/video time in the daylight.

Ceremony Time
For example: Will you be walking down the aisle together? If you're having a wedding party will they stand next to you during the ceremony, etc.
Traditional, non-denominational, catholic mass, casual, special performances, nontraditional ceremony orders, butterfly release, etc.
If you haven't thought about an exit yet and are interested let me know! We can plan an exit for some incredible photos!
Reception

Reception Time
Please list and specify any special event, traditions, or non-traditional moments that I should be aware of during your reception. Any other information that you would like for me to know about your reception can be listed here.
Photo Details
This is super important to make sure your family/wedding party portrait portion of the day goes smoothly! Please list each family grouping (using names/relationship to you) that you would like during your family formals time. This list will help make things go very smoothly and will keep everyone organized. I will use this list to call out each group of family members to get them ready for their photo. *Generally, it takes approximately 2-3 minutes per photo and up to 5 minutes for large groupings*
Are there any shots you'd specifically like me to get that I might not already think to? Any specific people or family heirlooms? I work best without a shot list so that I can capture creatively as the day unfolds, but if there's anything you'd be sad if it was missed, please list those ideas here.
Vendors
Within 48 hours of your wedding, I'll post a blog post with previews (photos, video, or both depending on your package) from your day! The more information that you can provide, the more information I can include in your special blog highlight. Not all vendors will be applicable to your wedding, so just fill in what you can!
Who organized your wedding day? Was it DIY, or did you hire a full service planner? Did your venue come with a planner/coordinator?
If you've booked me for video as well you can leave this blank! :)
List their name and what they are contributing to your day!
