Wedding Photography 101: What you should know!

A picture is worth a thousand words! So we sat down with one of our favorite photographers, Courtney Price,and got all the essential details for capturing the perfect day!

Q: How far in advance should a bride start her photography plans? Describe a timeline you suggest for brides?

A: Pre covid reschedules were 10 to 12 months but now its more 12 to 15 months, especially if your planning your wedding in super popular months like spring-fall. Wedding photographer should be the first vendor you book after your wedding planner.

Sample Timeline:

Make sure to check with your photographer & planner when choosing ceremony time based on the sunset (traditional rules around ceremony time no longer really apply - lighting is what's most important!) I would recommend scheduling your ceremony 2 hours before sunset.
