Wedding Planning Guide

You're getting MARRIED.

Not only is that exciting, it's freaking s t r e s s f u l. I put together this handy little guide in the hopes that it can answer some questions, let you go into your remaining meet ups with a better idea of how much time the photography aspect takes, and *hopefully* ease a little bit of that chaos. If you start browsing this and you're like "our day doesn't line up with this AT ALL" then don't panic, shoot me a text or email, and we'll figure it out!

These examples will give you a brief idea of how I structure coverage for the day, but keep scrolling for a complete breakdown of each chunk!
