This weekend I was reminded of the importance of "Time & Timing". Time has a funny way of slipping away on you. Just when you thought that setting aside a hour to have your photographer capture beautiful storytelling images of your day through portraiture and photojournalism, it only felt like 30 minutes or so and now it's time to hurry to the reception. Here is my advice on this, I feel the reason this time mystery occurs is that while you have scheduled an hour or so for your portrait session maybe the timing of let's say the travel from the ceremony site to the portrait site then to the reception site was not adequetly calculated. Typically I would say when figuring the timing of the day and the Time alotted for certain segments, I would leave extra travel time. A good rule of thumb is to double the travel time, let's say your ceremony is 15 minutes from the park, then allow 30minutes. It's better to have extra time and have a relaxing experience than to be rushed. Remember, your photographer is one of your only vendors who are with you your entire day and usually they are more than willing to offer their help and experience in the "Time and Timing" of your special day.
