Planning your wedding with the photography in mind
1. Have the flowers available for any pre-ceremony portraits.
2. Schedule plenty of preparation time.
3. Leave enough of a gap between people in the procession for two pictures to be taken.
4. Consider having bride and groom face the audience during the vows with the official standing with back to the crowd.
Outline of Ceremony - Provide a mark-up of the program indicating photo-ops, i.e. special music provided by bride's sister, organ played by groom's mother, ceremony performed by father, etc.
