Bride & Groom Questionnaire

For your convenience, this questionnaire is divided into THREE STEPS. After filling out each step, be sure to click "Submit" for each one! This will automatically forward your responses to me and will help me understand your expectations for your big day! I highly recommend using a computer (or some other device than your phone) for filling out these forms as they require a lot of typing.

Please note: Your answers are NOT SAVED on this form! Do not close your browser until AFTER clicking "SUBMIT".

You can come back to complete remaining steps after submitting, but do not close your browser in the middle of a step! Your information will be lost!

Step 1: Basic Information

Where I learn all about your wedding day! Please share as many details as possible!

Here are a few tips to know beforehand:

1. Make sure there is natural light in the room where the bride will be getting ready (window light). This makes a WORLD of difference in your images!

2. If possible, try to have all bridal details together before the photographer arrives. (Dress, jewelry, shoes, bouquet, garter, veil, etc) This will make the detail shots faster!

3. Keep the area near the window free of trash, bags, snacks, etc. This will be where the bride will be putting on her dress.

4. Allow more time than you think you need to get ready! It’s better to be safe than RUSHED!

5. Relax and have fun! You’re getting MARRIED!!


Please let us know if you would like your first look to be completely private, family and/or bridal party can watch from a distance, etc. I will do my best to honor your wishes.

(example: daddy/daughter first look) If so, do you prefer to see this person prior to the bride + grooms first look or after?

Step 2: Wedding Vendor Information

Please complete whatever information applies to your wedding. Include website and email contacts for vendors. This information is important in the event of an emergency on the wedding day and it is also needed if your wedding is submitted for publication (magazines or blogs). Any details/descriptions help ensure that I capture everything that has sentimental value to you.

Please list any details you want to make SURE we shoot so that we’re all on the same page.

Step 3: Family Formals

Family formals do not have to take up a big chunk of time. However, I can only shoot these portraits quickly if we plan in advance. Include first names to help organize the process.

Examples of grouping:

1. B&G with Parents

(list all shots requested within this grouping)

2. B&G with Grandparents

(list all shots requested within this grouping)

3. B&G with Siblings

(list all shots requested within this grouping)

Please inform me of any family members that may not get along and/or may not want to be grouped with a certain other family members so that we can avoid and awkward interactions during family formals.
