Are there any photography restrictions and rules?
(Some ceremony locations (especially churches) have strict photography restrictions, such as the photographer only being allowed to shoot from the far back. Most couples assume there are no restrictions, when there actually are. The best person to ask is the person performing your ceremony. This is important information needed prior to your wedding.)
Will you be doing a grand exit after the ceremony? (Bubbles, sparklers, confetti? )
How Important are Photographs to you on you're wedding day? Mildly, Very, Extremely Important?
Please consider: Formals Please keep in mind that the amount of formal photographs we can take is dependent on the time block allotted. Teri Kramer Photography’s style requires some creative time to achieve similar results to what you’ve seen in the TKP portfolio. For this reason, I requests the following time allotments for portraits on your wedding day: At least 30 minutes alone with the couple (preferably 40 minutes) 20 minutes with bridal party (depending on size) 5-7 minutes for each family portrait.
Family formals do not have to take an extensive amount of time, however this is only possible if we are organized beforehand. Please provide when and where information to anyone who is to be photographed during family portraits prior to the wedding. Getting people where they need to be for photos is the most time consuming part of group photos. It is best to assign a family member or friend who knows the people to be in the photos to help gather then up.
Would you like traditional portraits? *A complete shot list can be emailed to me separate from this form if you prefer.
B&G with Bride’s grandparents; parents; siblings B&G with Groom’s grandparents; parents; siblings Bride w/bridesmaids - grouped and separately Groom w/groomsmen- grouped and separately B&G w/Entire bridal party Bride and Groom – together and separately Note: Should you have a very large family and/or more than 10 group photos, I suggest saving some of the extended family shots until the reception so that family portrait time will not interfere with your bride and groom portraits and you will not keep your guests waiting at the reception. Would you like any or all formal photographs to be taken prior to the ceremony? (Even if you aren’t doing a First Look, we can cut out a lot of time by photographing bride/with bridesmaids and groom/with groomsmen)...
Special Group Requests
Are there any special circumstances I should be aware of? (divorces, death, disabilities, etc)
Would you like formals at the ceremony site, reception site, or other? (For numerous locations, please contact me to discuss your timeline)
Would you like to use your cocktail hour for photographs?
Would you like a golden sunset session for the bride and groom? This will take about 15-25 minutes during your reception and will add more photos with gorgeous lighting. For an estimate on what time this will be, please visit a sunset calculator to view the sunset time.
