So, as a wedding photographer, I get to see heaps of weddings… seriously heaps and heaps. And part of being a good wedding photographer is having a total understanding of the flow of the wedding day, what works, and what doesn’t work. This is crucial for me to be able to anticipate problems before they arise, and to be ready for special moments ahead of time.
I have found that over the years, this knowledge is gold. Not just for me on the day, but also to help my couples during the planning process. Now I’m no wedding planner, they are a whole other thing entirely (expect a post about that soon), but I do have a bit of insight that I can share when my couples ask. With that in mind, I’ve decided to put a few of those common things down here.
I will make a disclaimer. Everything I write here is my own opinion, formed by my own experiences. No two weddings are the same, so please, don’t take my thoughts as certainties!
