Who knew a borrowed camera could lead to living the good life!
I now travel the world capturing the sparks that first inspired my couples to say 'I do!'
If you’ve ever attended weddings as a guess, you’ve likely witnessed ‘The Frantic Frazzled Photographer’ who is underprepared, rushed, and stressed. We won’t let that happen to us… right?
However, even when we have the best intentions, we can get caught up in the moment of the big day. Maybe the hair and makeup went late, or Uncle Stu disappeared during family photos to get himself a cocktail – all of which sets us back and eats into that precious creative portrait time.
So, how can we guarantee a level of professionalism and success even with constantly changing variables? The key to being more of a calm and collected pro is by putting together that perfect wedding photography timeline.
Something many of my second-shooters have shared is that I am the most calm photographer they’ve worked with. I take this as a big compliment, but it also surprised me at first. Why it it that so many of us as photographers get flustered while working – and how can you get back into a state of calmness, confidence and flow?
One major way of achieving this is through figuring out how to plan a wedding photography timeline. When putting together a timeline, I’m predicting where things can go wrong throughout the day. And this is something any one of us can do!
Weddings can be sometimes be unpredictable – but they’re unpredictable in a predictable way. By having a great timeline in place it can bring a sense of calm back into your wedding days, that leads to a better experience (and better photos!)
In this video, I breakdown how I plan my wedding photography timelines. We’ll walk through the entire process together – from getting ready pictures, couples portraits, family pictures to the details and reception, discussing how you can preemptively plan for success! In addition, I’ve included how the timeline differs based on if there will be a first look or not. Click below for the full rundown!
I also have timeline tool that automatically generates a wedding timeline based on the wedding ceremony time (and if there will be a first look or not.) This is something I created for my own business to help streamline the process of how to plan a wedding photography timeline for my couples. And I’m sharing it for free in hopes that it will help you in your business too! Simply click here or below to grab it!
Hope this helps with planning for your next big wedding! If you want more wedding tips and tricks, be sure to check out my full YouTube channel with dozens of videos just like this!
