Shot lists are used to keep in organized and in order as the wedding day progresses. As a seasoned wedding professional we have curated our own unique wedding photography shot list. Our wedding photography shot list is unique to our brand and our most-loved photographs by our Wedding Photography clients. The shot list includes some ‘must-haves’ incorporating a creative conception of the wedding day vision by New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre. Below we have some frequently asked questions that we address for brides-to-be.

After ten years of photographing weddings, Michelle has found what has worked to provide her clients with a superior photography and wedding day experience. So with her knowledge at the forefront working with real brides she has found working off ‘a list’ interferes with moments as they unfold. It is our goal for the day to flow organically and naturally and is only appropriate while photographing formals to capture the authentic documentary and photojournalistic moments of the day as they naturally unfold. Rather than your day feeling as though it is a checklist, we want for the moments to be occurring naturally. We want for you to soak in every moment as it comes and to move through each step authentically. With that being said, we would refrain from the moments feeling forced or unnatural as though they are compiled from such list. Her approach will achieve consistent series of images throughout her portfolio of the timeless moments as they naturally unfold and romantic portraits.

A well-organized schedule will serve as a guide for all vendors on the wedding day and is an important component of every successful wedding. For your day to run smoothly, from hair and makeup to cake cutting, things will happen on time and flow accordingly. And just how you have an itinerary for all of your bridal makeup, ceremony and reception events, to timing of speeches there will also be a guided timeline for your wedding photographers.

The wedding photography timeline will note the day-of event start time(s), end time(s), location(s), and also mention any events happening and who they involve (if a vendor or family member) for example: first look with bridal party/father-of-the-bride/groom. If there are any special requests from the couple, a note will be mentioned in the timeline for the photo opportunities to be completed by the wedding photography team.

We highly recommend for the very special wedding day moments like you getting into your gown and the for the gentlemen to be suited up require that time to savor. Sometimes coupes don’t realize this time and what to factor in. Sometimes couples don’t realize how long it takes to get into the gown. Yet as professional New Jersey wedding photographers and service providers, we’re here to guide you through this time for you to savor these moments on the day and not feel as though you are rushed from place to place on your day. These are the best moments in life!

Your wedding photography timeline will keep you on track moving from one location to the next and by having this scheduled set in stone before you tie the know you’ll be able to get all those desired images without feeling rushed. You’ll have the ability to savor the moment. As wedding photographers, Michelle Behre Photography provides an ultimate experience for brides and grooms on their wedding day. The timeline build is essential to our process!

Below are a few items we review together to structure your wedding day timeline by New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre Photography.

Tips for Your Wedding Photography Timeline

Before crafting your wedding day timeline, there are a few things to keep in mind about the flow of your wedding day. You’ll want to think about your time and how you want to spend that on your day. Some of these may take a minute or so to think about, no pressure bride-to-be. So here are a few of our expert tips as we plan our wedding day photography timelines with our beautiful wedding couples.

Details

To keep the morning flowing on schedule and on time, we’ll want to begin with photographing your beautiful wedding day details. To do just that, we recommend setting aside your details in one single location. Details may include your invitation suite, wedding bands, vow book, shoes, and more. As soon as Michelle arrives, she begins photographing those thoughtfully curated items as you are in hair and makeup. Pro tip: notify your maid/matron of honor the location of these items so we can snag those for photos as you enjoy your time in hair and makeup!

Example: Beautiful wedding day details curated in flat-lay photography at a romantic Ryland Inn Wedding Venue.

Consider a First Look

Nerves may be running a bit high in the morning. This is one of the best days of your lives and if you’re hosting a traditional timeline, more than half the day will be spent in different locations. If you nor your partner are opposed to completing a first look on your wedding day, then you’ll want to consider it! First looks are when you are taking your formal portraits prior to your ceremony so instead of missing your cocktail hour you get to enjoy that time and will essentially add more time to your wedding day that you get to enjoy, together! From a photographer’s perspective, the first looks provide plenty of logistical benefits from to your timeline. Yet our favorite bonus of hosting a first look for our couple’s are the intimate moments, vow readings, and portrait time that our couples share before the busyness of the day. It’s truly a moment just for you two to enjoy on your day which is extra-special.

Example: Here are a few beautiful moments from a first look and intimate portraits that we love from romantic fall wedding at the Crossed Keys Estate Andover New Jersey Wedding Venue.

Consider an Extended Cocktail Hour

If keeping it traditional is more your thing-we got you! I would recommend the extended cocktail hour. Extending your cocktail will allow for a few moments at your cocktail hour mixing, mingling and celebrating at the very beginning of your post-ceremony party. The best of both worlds!

Example: Bride and groom enjoying their portraits at Congress Hall Cape May beach and extended cocktail hour at Congress Hall Hotel Wedding.

Congress Hall Cape May New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Buffer in Timeline

When planning the timeline, I recommend to factor in ‘buffer time.’ This time is great to take a moment prior to your ceremony. This buffer can be used to relax and recharge before your big moment to come. If anything happens to run behind in the schedule, then we know there is a safety buffer time. We’ll still have time to recharge the batteries before departing ceremony time!

Example: Watching from the bridal suite as guests arrive at the Crossed Keys Estate Wedding Venue | Couple enjoys a ‘first touch’ prior to their ceremony to calm the nerves at the Ryland Inn Wedding Venue.

Formal Portraits

During your formal portraits, taking family photos can be a bit overwhelming and time-consuming. To make this process as efficient as possible, we will work through a previously crafted approved by the couple. Prior to the wedding, it is important to notify family that they will be photographed and what time. On the wedding day, to make this process as efficient as possible, I recommend notifying family members what time and where. Same applies to wedding party.

Example: Wedding party portraits at The Coach House at the Ryland Inn Wedding Venue | Family formals at Crossed Keys Estate Wedding Venue.

When choosing your New Jersey wedding venue, wedding planner/day-of coordination services, venue and your bridal fashion are all huge decisions on how you will experience your wedding day. Choosing your New Jersey Wedding Photographer makes a major impact on how you will walk through your wedding day, the experience you will have and how you will memorialize your wedding looking back on your day for years ahead and passing down your images from this generation to the next with your wedding photos.

Photographing weddings is an art form. Whilst many bride-to-be think that simply anyone with a cell phone or camera can document a wedding day, again, capturing the wedding day is an art that takes years of skill, stamina, creativity, experience, and team work. For your wedding, you should be investing in a seasoned and skilled New Jersey Wedding Photographer, that is not only exceptionally skilled in all forms of Photography, yet has the photography style that reflects the aesthetic you desire to capture throughout your wedding milestones and can curate that style for your wedding welcome party, rehearsal dinner, wedding day and day-after.

“I never thought of myself as doing anything other than telling stories”
– Erich Lessing

When choosing your Wedding Photographer, find one whose work you can imagine yourself in. Works that you feel so deeply connected to that you cannot imagine anyone else capturing your day. You are hiring your Wedding Photographer for their trained artistic eye. Their art shares your wedding day and their artistic/creative message. If you are seeing their images and thinking to yourself, ‘this is how I want to feel on my day. This is how I want to walk through my wedding day.’ Then you know this is your Wedding Photographer. You have found your ‘perfect-person.’

On the wedding day, and in over a decade of capturing beautiful wedding days, we have found there are an abundance of genres captured. Here we will take a moment to describe each Wedding Day Genre that we photograph and our approach in our creative style that we have curated and fine-tuned over the last ten years of Photographing Weddings in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, New England and California. Are you interested in learning more about Michelle Behre Photography and her approach and availability for your Wedding? Inquire to learn more about her Wedding Photography Services.

Classic & Traditional Portraiture

On the wedding day, classic and traditional portraiture consist of beautiful formal portraits that are posed. These classic, elegant, and timeless posed portraits are captured with you and your loved ones smiling and looking at the camera. We capture classic and traditional portraits of the bride and groom, wedding party, family, and moments during the cake cutting.

Example: Family Formals at Crossed Keys Estate from Ariel + Bryan’s romantic fall wedding.

Documentary Wedding Photography

Michelle Behre Photography prioritizes the authentic wedding day moments. On the wedding day, New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre uses a photojournalistic and documentary photography approach to capture the moments organically. These are the moments that shine through your wedding day collection. These are the moments that share the story of your day. From capturing the unexpected moments with her creative and unique vision, to capturing the timeless and editorial portraiture, Michelle’s goal is for you to feel the joy of your wedding as you view the collection and reminisce the the joyful moments passed.

Documentary and Photojournalism Capturing the Day

To do just that, Michelle uses an organic approach to capturing the wedding day with photojournalism. She finds the beauty in the in-between moments, movement, and capturing the authentic emotion as it unfolds in front of her lens. She captures the moments authentically without interrupting the moments and uses her images to narrate and share your story authentically as the day naturally unfolds. Inserting herself and gaining comfort and confidence with each person who steps in front of her lens, Michelle has the ability to walk into each wedding day and capture the moments that you will look back on years to come naturally as they unfold in front of her lens.

If Michelle finds that the train of the dress needs to be fixed, or if some direction needs to be provided for a more flattering image; Michelle will insert herself into the frame. This is documentary photography approach. The two styles of photography, documentary and photojournalism merge beautifully while curating on wedding days.

Is this the style that you are dreaming to have your wedding captured? Inquire with Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre to learn about her availability for your Wedding.

Example(s):

Emotive first look with the Bride, and her bridesmaids during her reveal at the Ryland Inn Wedding.

Culinary Photography

During cocktail hour and the reception, creative photographs of the stunning culinary displays and dining options will be photographed. Here, Michelle will utilize her skills in culinary ‘food’ photography to photograph the stunning displays and arts.

Example: Cocktail Hour details at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens.

Flat-lay Photography

Wedding day flay-lay photographs are curated to perfection. Michelle utilizes your and your husband wedding day details to thoughtfully capture flat-lay photographs of the thoughtful details that you have so carefully curated. All moments of your wedding are carefully curated and carefully captured by New Jersey Wedding Photographers.

Example: Ariel + Bryan’s Crossed Keys Estate Invitation Suite, Engagement ring and wedding bands

Editorial Photography

Once a stunning traditional portrait is preserved, Michelle will guide you and your husband through a stunning bridal and groom portrait session capturing a fusion of timeless and classic editorial, documentary and photojournalistic portraits on your wedding day providing you with a variety of picture-perfect, cover-worthy editorial images. These images will have a curated, magazine-spread-like feel. Editorial images are compelling, creative, visually driven and curate your wedding day narrative. Pointing directly back to your documentary and photojournalistic images of your wedding day collection, the editorial portraits compliment the raw emotive moments beautifully.

Example: Bridals, Bride & Groom, Wedding Party Formal Portraits at The Ryland Inn.

Aerial Photography

We believe in curating from all angles. Whether that be from a second story window, balcony of the church or via aerial drone footage, Michelle Behre Photography utilizes different view points to share and document the day.

Example: Looking up at this couple during their Monmouth University Session.

Monmouth University, Mounmouth, New Jersey Engagement Session

Environmental Portraiture

As we capture your romantic wedding day portraits, Michelle will capture the setting of your Wedding Venue using Environmental Portraiture as you explore the space together in joy.

Example: Romantic and dreamy portraits of Michele + Tom at Crossed Keys Estate.

Film Photography

Film captures a true sense of nostalgia, longing and depth to images showcasing a sense of timelessness. Michelle loves to incorporate Polaroid and black and white images into her Wedding Photography.

Example: Romantic Spring Crossed Keys Estate Wedding captured on film and digital.
