WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TIMELINE | IDEAL TIMES FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY

With the diversity of weddings, it’s difficult to pinpoint the best wedding photography timeline template.

However, there are time frames you should consider when planning your big day. Some of these times may seem long on paper but keep in mind that 1) the day will fly by, 2) most weddings run slightlybehind schedule, and 3) we’ll make these photo sessions fun, so it won’t seem like a long time.
