Meet Logan & Rose. We were supposed to host their wedding reception Saturday but due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, they made the difficult decision to postpone their wedding to next Spring. While we are heartbroken along with them, we were delighted to hear that despite the ongoing situation and closures, Logan and Rose were able to hold a small, intimate wedding ceremony for immediate family at their local church before the 5pm shutdown began. The church even provided a livestream of the ceremony so that all their friends and family could still celebrate safely with them from afar! Congratulations Rose & Logan and we cannot wait to celebrate with you next year!! #loveconquersall #sharejoy #postponedontcancel #saveevents ...

Most of us hire a wedding photographer because they not only desire images that capture their day, but also beautiful bride and groom portraits. My best advise is to make sure you talk with your photographer when creating your wedding day timeline. Your photographer can offer valuable insight regarding portrait time. Generally, I ask my couples for 30 minutes with the couple and another 30 minutes for the bridal party. And don’t forget those family formals, you’ll likely need 20-30 for those as well. That means you need at least 1.5 hours reserved for portraits on your wedding day. Make sure to allow for this time, otherwise you’ll be a sad Mr & Mrs when you receive your wedding gallery. .
