Raza & Shiza

Most couples never know how much time to plan for getting ready and couple portraits so oftentimes they never book enough time, and that is the first thing that gets overlooked or rushed.  You spend months and months planning out your big day so it’s important to not skimp out when it comes to this part! On the wedding day, there are a lot of emotions running high and everything happens so fast that it’s hard to take it all in. That is why having a professional photographer there to document everything is so important. Booking enough time for photos will allow you to relax and soak up all of the little details on your big day. It’s also important to have some couple portraits taken before the ceremony so that you can enjoy your cocktail hour with your guests without having to worry about taking photos. Trust me, you will be glad you did!

Raza and his bride-to-be were both thrilled when they found out that Xeenia, the groom’s sister, was going to be helping out with the planning for their reception. As busy professionals, they didn’t have a lot of time to spare, and they were grateful to have someone they could trust to handle the details. Xeenia was especially helpful when it came to mapping out the timeline for the big day. She made sure to ask about all of the different photo opportunities that the couple wanted to make sure they had plenty of time for everything.

When it comes to booking a photo or video session, I always recommend allotting at least 3-4 hours. This may seem like a long time, but it’s actually the perfect amount of time to get a variety of high-quality shots. Rather than feeling rushed, you and your team will be able to take your time and get creative with the shoot. As a result, you’ll end up with a portfolio of beautiful photos and an amazing video that captures the essence of the event. So if you’re planning a photo and video session, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get the best results.
