Just Said Yes January 2023

Picture timing

Amanda, on January 9, 2022 at 6:33 PM Posted in Hair and Makeup 0 5

Myself and bridal party are getting HMU done at my house and getting dressed at the venue. I am only able to get into the venue two hours before the ceremony.

Will I have enough time to get some "getting ready pictures", first look, and all formal pictures done before the ceremony in two hours?

    Absolutely you will!

    I am in the same boat with 2 hours as well, and yes, there will be time! (assuming of course, that your ceremony and getting ready location aren't too far apart, mine is only about 5 minutes' drive but I've allowed myself 20, as a 'just in case' buffer!)

    I think you’ll be fine! My wedding started at 3 and we weren’t able to get there until 1 o’clock. Because I had a Sunday wedding, this meant that we also had to decorate the venue during that time! We already had our hair and makeup done, but I was still able to get several shots with them. We didn’t, however, do a first look. Though if you’re not setting up, you’ll probably have plenty of time! Picture timing 1

    I would say yes, depending on everything going according to plan and also depending on how many combinations you have for formal pictures (if you're doing all the family ones as well). I would plan to expect taking pictures during cocktail hour but hope you won't have to.

    Probably so. Talk with your photographer. He/she will be able to come up with a timeline for you that will work.

    I would for sure run the plan past the photographer. Some work faster than others. I think it’s probably enough time, yes.
