Wedding Photography

Work Plan

rainbow-wave.gif (1999 bytes)


This is a list partial list of typical wedding photographs. To help in planning your wedding day photography look at the list and use it as an outline to identify the kind of images you are interested in as well as identifying "Must Take" photographs. Please remember that in addition to these the photographer will also be creating an extensive photojournalistic perspective with several hundred candid images.  

Consider ranking the shots as 1 - a must have shot, 2 - as a very important shot, 3 - as nice to have, 4 - as a low priority and 5 - as not necessary.
