Please include times for the following as applicable and any other important events during your day. (I can also assist with this timeline if needed)
Cocktail Hour Start
Formal Portraits (usually right after ceremony)
If so, when and where will this take place?
Are there any special or unique ideas you have for photographs that I should be aware of? (Props/Poses/Etc.)

If you plan to have any photos done at a location other than your venue/s, please include the locations below.
i.e. The Canal, War Memorial, Monument Circle, etc.
Additional Formal Groupings that you would like?

i.e. Grandfather - Joe Smith
Is a good idea to remind these family members to “Please stay after!” or “Can you be at the ceremony site at ____? We’d love a photo with you!”. On the wedding day, giving a trusted family member a copy of this checklist as a point person can help to keep people where they are supposed to be and keep everyone on schedule!
Any additional questions or comments?
