Many couples want to hold to the old-fashioned "the groom shouldn't see the bride before the ceremony" tradition. But it's also important to consider just how long the pictures can actually take.

Guests can be left waiting anywhere from one to three hours between the ceremony and reception. Not only will your guests find it frustrating, you'll also have many guests showing up late to the reception... or not at all!

Wedding photography

Be considerate of your friends' and family's time.

Remember, some of them may have to pay for babysitters and can't afford to spend an entire day at your wedding. Plan on having your wedding photos done before the ceremony, when everyone in the wedding party is looking fresh.

This will allow you to glide smoothly from ceremony to the reception with only a short travel time in between. Your guests will appreciate it.
