pro tip: managing time on your wedding day
Managing your time can be tricky in regular life never mind your wedding day. If there's one conversation that I always have with my clients it is giving them the best advice I've learned from over the years on how to manage and time your big day. So, let's try to look as happy as the picture below and really figure out how to stay ahead of the wedding timeline. First, I always stress the importance of starting your day with buffers just in case hair or make-up run a bit behind. When I go to photograph the getting ready portion of the day, for me, this is the most critical part of the day. Why? Well, you can always add time at the end of the night, but you can't ever go back in time and start earlier once the day has started. I love to get to my weddings early....it's in my dna, I suppose. When I discuss with a couple when their start time should begin, I always always tell them to buffer in an extra 30min to an hour before their hair or make-up would like to start. You just never know if someone is going to run late, the weather is bad, or you change your mind last minute on how you want your hair or make-up to look. Please please always start a bit earlier than you think for those possible bumps in the road....you'll thank yourself.
