Getting Ready and preparations
Your wedding photography coverage starts before your wedding begins.
It is always recommended meet before the wedding day.
This way we know each other, and also we know the details that will help you get an ideal coverage.
On the wedding day
For most weddings we arrive 1-3 hours before ceremony.
As bride and groom are getting ready for the wedding, we start capturing the story of your day.
The Getting ready is to capture the important moments and things on the transition to a new life.
It is an emotional and exciting time.
Last moments as single with your loved people, The location, the dress, the clothes, the flowers, rings, and details.
The bride and groom are getting dressed, the blessing, and specially the bond between friends and family who are close to you in this time.
Bride and groom get their photos alone and sometimes the bride plans for sexy lingerie shoot which is a present for the future husband.
All this is done in 1-3 hours however some couples plan more coverage hours or days before including family meetings, cocktails and events they don't want to miss.
Our best tip here is plan and confirm your timing so you can do the things you want on your own way.
This is especially true for makeup and hair sometimes this takes longer than expected.
Ceremony, toast, party and wedding photos
Wedding photography coverage follows your wedding schedule.
For example if your event is 7 hours long most probably you need 7 hours of wedding photography plus the getting ready time.
We shoot candids all the time.
But also during this time we recommend to leave some time for family and couple pictures alone ,
Ideally is better to have some natural light to show the location on the pictures.
If you have a long party you may consider not covering the end of your event,
Specially if you think it will be less energetic at the end.
Your wedding photography coverage ends here some couples want sessions before and after the wedding.
Trash the Dress (TTD)(or just married session)
After the wedding trash the dress is a great opportunity to make fun photos on a great location
we recommend to leave a day or more to rest.
No worries about being crazy, fun and silly or getting wet or dirty.
Apart from resorts we have some great hotspots north and south from Puerto Vallarta.
Trash the dress is not limited to the beach we have great locations on the mountains, creeks and also some old Mexican towns nearby.
Most of couples choose from 1-4 hours, depending on how many locations you want to be in.
It is a session a few days or weeks before the wedding, the session can be casual or with your own personal style.
Normally with one or more outfits
it’s a great a chance for us to capture your love and share it with the world.
More than that, it’s an opportunity to know you and gain your trust.
Couples use this pictures for your Facebook, invitations and details at the wedding.
1 to 2 hours it is our recommendation for most of couples, there are some couples who love photography so much that they pic different locations and outfits and go for half day of adventure and shoot.
