The Reception

Let the fun begin! From the time your bridal party lines up for introductions to the time you exit your reception, we are there to capture the party and have fun, too! As your wedding photographers this means we acknowledge it's best to be inconspicuous, but not to the point that we can't interact with you and your friends & family to ensure great smiles in photos! We want your guests to know we are approachable which makes the photography experience much smoother. Because we know everyone is enjoying your celebration and having a great time, we always feel comfortable being a part of your wedding in this way, too.

Here are some key moments during a typical reception:

A Quick Note on Reception Details

Whether it’s before the Ceremony or during family portraits, one of us will plan to photograph your reception details. This is typically a 15-20 minute process, and we know you will love having these photographs to remember all the details and decor that went into decorating your wedding day.

The Exit

We love photographing exits! We do our best to include enough hours of coverage to cover the most important parts of your reception. If you’re having your exit photographed, we can make sure the timeline fits for our coverage or add additional hours if the reception is extending your given coverage time.
