QOTD from Dena: "Photogs: Where do you start when shooting a wedding? Details? Getting ready? Or do you just adjust as things flow?"

I tweaked this for my clients but its nice to have a list to stay somewhat organized =)

Morgan: Getting ready, then as I have time I get details. Often I leave my second shooter with the bride while I get details then send her to the groom when I get back! Hope that helps!

Cate:  Getting ready, details, boys, first look, girls, bridal party, ceremony, details again, reception.

BP4U: I normally will start off the day by shooting the venue shots (if we start off at the ceremony venue first) and then move right into detail shots of the shoes, dress, jewelry. From there I'll do getting ready shots, and groom getting ready/detail shots, the bride and bridesmaids, groom/groomsmen, ceremony detail, ceremony, family formals, bride&groom, full bridal party, reception details & reception (depending on the timeline of the day)

Kit: Adjust as you go, but generally start with details at house, then gettin ready. Otherwise she would be wearin the things u wanted to photograph to start with!
