In the most recent issue of The Knot: Colorado magazine, they ran an article called No Regrets: The 10 most common planning blunders and how to avoid them. Among other great tips such as “think hard before you pick your attendants,” the article had some great advice about wedding photography. The title of the paragraph was Don’t even think about speeding through photos and it read:
“Speaking of not having enough time, any less than an hour isn’t enough for a portrait session; an hour-and-a-half is closer to ideal because you’ll look more relaxed in your pictures (and those first few never come out as well as you hope). Squeezing photos into the first 30 minutes of your cocktail hour will make you anything but at ease. If you refuse to see your groom before the ceremony, take pictures separately beforehand so the only shots left to take after the ceremony include both of you.”
This is real good advice to consider when scheduling time for your wedding photos. You only get one shot at getting great portraits of yourselves on your wedding day and you want to make the most of it.
