FAQ's About our upcoming planning meeting:
* The meetings are held in my home studio at 4572 58th Ave. N. in Minneapolis
* Both partners are invited, but not required to be there. The one who is most knowledgeable about all the minute details of the wedding day should attend.
*Meetings last from 45 to 90 minutes, depending on how well you have your details nailed down in advance.
*We will start by verifying basic contact info, addresses & phones, to make sure my records are up-to-date. From there, I'll have a few questions about the size of the wedding party, the number of guests, etc.
*Most of the meeting will be spent discussing the specific timeline of the wedding day. We begin with the time of the ceremony itself and "work backwards" from there to determine a good start time. It will speed things along if you know ahead of time how many family groups you intend to shoot and how much time you wish to allot for photos for the bride, groom, wedding party, and parents. One hour is too short, three hours is too long. Consider if you want "getting ready" shots and plan to do a "first look"/reveal.
Then we move forward from the close of the ceremony to the time of the dance to lay out the planned time for each of the days activities. Pay particular attention to how you will receive your guests - proper wedding protocol demands this, and I referenced it in detail in your welcome package when you signed with me.
Other items in the later phase of course will include busting the gown, a social hour, cake cutting, toasts/speeches, first dances, party shots, and any other special events you may have planned.
*Things to bring: If you have a list of family photo groupings, please bring it. If you have sample photos that you want done (and they are on paper), bring them (otherwise, if you have created a pinterest board of favorite photo ideas, email that to me prior to our meeting so I can be familiar with it.)
SEE YOU SOON!!
