Full Coverage starts 2-2.5 hours prior to the ceremony start time OR 4-4.5 hours prior to the ceremony start time if the couple is seeing each other beforehand for a "First Look”. If the photographers feel that the day is sufficiently covered, they may leave after consulting with the couple after all formalities are completed. Full Coverage for Photography shall not exceed 10 hours.

Roughly 2 months prior to your wedding date, you’ll be asked to fill out our Photographer’s Information Sheet on our website.

It’s a new age so it is no longer considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding. There are some HUGE advantages to a First Look Session! Especially if there is limited time between your ceremony and the cocktail hour. Here are a few benefits to maximize your wedding day! •A First Look has been proven to calm any nerves before the very anticipated “walk down the aisle”. It’s the perfect icebreaker and allows you to enjoy your ceremony even more! •You can enjoy private moments together when you first see each other. Hugs, kisses and compliments! • You save time by taking the majority of your photos before the wedding ceremony. This includes family, bridal party and your soon-to-be other half! All done before you say “I Do”! •All those delicious appetizers you picked out... guess what? You’ll get to enjoy your entire cocktail hour! • You’ll be grateful to get off your feet for a bit. During cocktail hour, not only can you indulge, but you can relax before the dancing frenzy begins!
