FROM START TO FINISH
The weeks prior to and directly following your wedding are busy times. Here at Maggie Coursey Photography we honor your harried moments with a special timeline which will help you to understand how we are working our hardest to avoid any unnecessary surprises:
Two weeks before your wedding: After chatting on the phone a little bit about the day and discussing any last minute specifications, we send you a wedding information form online to fill out with all the details most important to you for capturing the best images possible.
Two days before your wedding: We give you a quick check-in call to confirm all the details from the schedule and your wedding information form.
The day of your wedding: We arrive at the scheduled time and quickly run through the course of the day. Then we coordinate with your family and friends regarding scheduled start times for formal portraits and what to expect.
A week after your wedding: We collect all of your wedding images which will then be edited, retouched, archived and prepared for your online gallery.
Two to Three weeks after your wedding: We deliver your online wedding gallery information.
Four weeks after your wedding: We send you a link to the album planning form online to help prepare you to choose your favorites for your album.
Eight weeks after your wedding: You should submit your album planning form to us no later than eight weeks after the wedding so we can begin the album designing process.
Ten weeks after your wedding: We finalize the details of your album and send you a link to approve or make changes to the final product.
Fourteen weeks after your wedding: Your album and artwork are ready for pickup!
At Maggie Coursey Photography, we pride
ourselves in capturing the most natural, candid portraiture possible. This style showcases your day as it was, helping to bring your personalities forward and documenting your day for a lifetime of memories.
While we shoot the majority of our images this way, its also very important to capture traditional formal portraits as well. These group shots are best when everyone is ready and fresh, prior to the ceremony; and since our most important goal is getting you to your wedding on schedule, we allow 3-5 minutes for each desired grouping to ensure maximum results with minimal time. (Make sure to have all flowers and boutonnieres delivered on time and affixed to family members and to the wedding party in advance.)
Because we prefer to keep the number of groups to ten or less for more intimate group shots, we always start with the largest group and break it down after that to allow for mingling. We love to include a picture of the bride with each of her bridesmaids and the groom with each of his groomsmen, since each person has been invited due to close, personal ties with the couple.
If you have ideas for any can't-miss portrait groupings you would like to see photographed during this time, make sure to note them on your provided wedding information form. We're happy to work with you to capture all of your special moments!
