Kelsey + Charlie's Preview (24 of 50).jpg
 

On your wedding day, it's important that your timeline allows for plenty of photographs in the best light possible. A “point person” designated by you is necessary to round up family and bridal party members for group photographs. These are ideal timelines assuming a sunny day with a sunset around 7:45pm. There are two 7 hour sample options, with a first look and without.
