I have been dying to do a blog series for brides for SO long now!! I don’t know why it’s taken my so long to finally get it started…but I’m pretty excited about it!! 🙂 So, today kickstarts my very first bridal series: “Creating a Photography-Friendly Wedding Day”. This series is going to be all about how to build a timeline and a wedding day that is ideal for photography. I’m so excited to be breaking the day down from a photographer’s perspective in hopes of making the planning process a little easier and less stressful! There are so many different moving parts on a wedding day…but your photographs will be the ONE thing that you will be keeping forever. It’s the ONLY potion of the day that you will leave with. Your cake with be thrown away, your decorations will be stored and your memories are the only thing that outlasts the wedding day…along with the PHOTOGRAPHS! So it should be a big factor when planning the outline of your big day!

They should be able to work well in any lighting situation and any timeline crunch no matter what!
