We all have attended a wedding where the waiting seems endless. We dread the time in between the ceremony and reception where we know photographs are being taken. This is the most popular time that most couples choose to take their wedding pictures. Often the waiting may seem long if the wedding party is large in number or they are less organized than they should be. Once in a while some in the wedding party are uncooperative with the photographer and that only drags out the whole process. Since the bride and groom are concerned about their guests, the question arises, “When should photos be taken?”

Ideally, you want to take the photographs without making anyone wait an extended period of time. Taking hours until you arrive at the reception would be rude and you may lose some of your guests to boredom. In order to expedite the picture taking process, you have several options. It’s best to discuss the options with your photographer ahead of time since his past experiences will give him an idea of what times are best and how long it will take.Ideally, you want to take the photographs without making anyone wait an extended period of time

When you think about it, most brides don’t want to take their photos after the reception as their makeup and hair is not fresh. If you do decide though, that this is the best time for everyone involved, make sure you remember to bring along the needed items to freshen up.

Some couples have recently decided to take some portraits days, weeks, or even months in advance of the wedding. Admittedly, months in advance seems a little strange. The bride may wish to take a portrait alone or with her “husband to be” which can be added to a wedding announcement, save the date card, thank you cards, or for use in the newspaper that will carry your announcement of engagement. This will add a unique and personal touch.SOME COUPLES HAVE RECENTLY DECIDED TO TAKE SOME PORTRAITS DAYS, WEEKS, OR EVEN MONTHS IN ADVANCE OF THE WEDDING

In the end, allow at least an hour to take photos and if things seem to run off track, do your best to not make your guests wait too long. Make sure everyone participates in a cooperative manner so that the reception can get started on time.

A small note regarding the photographer; always make sure you have a written contract once the deal is made. It prevents misunderstandings and sends the signal to the photographer you are expecting their best.
