1 p.m.

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.

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.
