Elizabeth arrives at Bride’s getting ready location and 2nd Shooter arrives at Groom’s getting ready location.
1pm - Getting Ready
Note: Ideally by the time we arrive, hair and make-up is already wrapping up. If something is going to delay the beginning of the day, it’s often HAMU.
2:00 PM finishing touches
We take 3-5 minutes for a quick bride + groom portrait before heading to the first look!

Husband + Wife Sunset Photos
6:00 Pm Portraits
You'll want to plan to head out 45 minutes before the sunsets. This is usually the best light of the day! For mid-summer weddings, you'll normally do sunset portraits during the dinner hour or a later ceremony time.
6:30 pm Cocktail Hour
Note: The great thing about doing a First Look is that it gives you more time at cocktail hour! We’ll grab some pictures of your guests while you enjoy the hour.
