Wedding Day Timeline Example

Wedding Day Timeline Example

Ok you got engaged, first of all congratulations!!! How freaking exciting! Buttt…. now what? Now it is time to start your planning, but you have no idea where to begin. It’s ok girl! I am totally here for you :)

I have created a free wedding day timeline for you. Yay! This timeline has two different versions within it. The first being where your wedding has a ‘first look’ and the second being a traditional wedding where you don’t see your groom until you walk down the isle. Either way is awesomesauce; however, they are 100% different when it comes to the timeline and taking pictures.

The ideal wedding day timeline by Bessie Young Photography - Free Downloadable guide to a wedding day timeline

This timeline was created from the photographers perspective (ie me!) . This way you can see the amount of time that is needed in order to capture all the images that you want. It will also help you decide if you want a first look, how much time you need for those family photos, if you want to have the ‘getting ready shots’, and so forth.

So what are you waiting for? Get your example wedding day timeline and get to planning you wedding! I am just so dang excited for you!

Wishing you nothing but beautiful days and fun wedding planning!

Pinecrest Senior Portraits | Summerville High School Senior Portraits | Mya | Sonora Photographer

Pinecrest Senior Portraits

Summerville High School Senior Portraits | Mya

Sonora Photographer

by Bessie Young Photography

This session may have just taken the winning spot! Holy awesomeness is all I have to say. Typically with my blogs I try to have about 10ish photos; however, I just couldn't choose! So this one has.... well.... ALOT more than normal. LOL. I guess I could say I'm sorry, but I'm not:)

When I was contacted to take Mya's senior portraits up at Pinecrest I was absolutely thrilled. Pinecrest is such an amazing place to take portraits and I just couldn't wait!

I met Mya and her Mama up at the Forest Service parking lot. The plan was to head over to the lake, get some photos in the woods and then get the remainder of the photos at the lake.

Well, as we were driving along there was this absolutely amzing meadow with the most beautiful golden light that you ever did see. I stopped and asked the girls what they thought and they were completely up for a change in plans! All I have to say is YAY!!! I freaking love when my people trust me and are down for anything!

After the meadow we headed into the woods for a bit more of a glam session. I love a natural setting with a fancy dress. Let me tell you, the it is awesome and the contrast just really is so spectacular. I always tell my, clients when they are thinking about outfits, to bring at least one fancy item, unless that is just completely not you, but if it is, it is always an awesome outfit to incorporate into the session. We typically don't stay in this outfit for more than about 10 minutes. This is just enough time to get some pretty awesome shots all dressed up.

While Mya was changing into another outfit I found another meadow with some beautiful wildflowers! Of course we had to dance and twirl :)

Let me tell you, this girl was up for anything and she is the absolute sweetest. When she smiles she lights up the room. She smiles and a glow just comes about her that changes everything.

After adventuring into various meadows we finally found our way to the lake! Ahh, Pinecrest you are so beautiful (insert all the heart eyed emojis here).

Mya brought along her guitar and she strung a few chords as I walked around taking some shots. I mean how cool is she?! For realz though?!

Thank you so much Mya for trusting me with all my crazy ideas and for being so dang easy going. Thank you so much for allowing me to be your photographer during this super special time in your life. You are so gorgeous and such an amazing person! I am so glad that I get to say I know you.

Clovis West Senior Portraits - Diana - Fresno Photographer

Clovis West Senior Portraits

Diana

by Bessie Young Photography

Ohhhh myyyy gosshhhhhh!!! All I have to say is that this girl is absolutely amazing!

Diana reached out to me via Instagram to get her portraits taken while she was in town traveling from her home in New York! How cool is that?! All I can say is that it was just meant to be.

Since Diana was visiting from out of town she wasn't quite sure where to go to get her portraits taken. After asking a few questions we decided that Clovis West was the absolute perfect place to go. It was close to where she was staying and had that total city vibe that she was looking for.

I absolutely love when my girls ask for suggestions on where to get their pictures taken. Don't ever be afraid to ask your photographer for suggestions because guaranteed they have some pretty freaking cool spots to go :)

We met up at Clovis West for a sunset portrait session in order to get that beautiful golden light. Diana is one of the easiest people to get along with. She is outgoing, spunky, and a total girl boss! Her smile is absolutely contagious, and can we just stop for a moment and admire her hair? Talk about total hair goals :)

The session went until sundown and just a bit after because we lost track of time and were having so much dang fun! Thank you so much Diana for reaching out to me to be your photographer. It was such an absolute blast! You have so much talent and you are the absolute sweetest! I know you will do great things!
