Going Unplugged

What’s an unplugged wedding?

Your wedding day is special, so it’s understandable why everyone wants to capture it with their phones. Unfortunately, phones can ruin your ceremony photos. Phones are distracting and can cause disruptions during the ceremony and in your wedding photos.

We recommend that all our couples request a phone-free wedding ceremony. Don’t worry, we will be there to capture every moment perfectly so that no one will miss out on that great photo.

Every wedding package includes a photo release form, so you will be able to download and save your wedding images.

If you want to have a phone-free ceremony here are a few tips on how to implement that rule for your guests.

  • Add a note on the invitations about your no-phone “unplugged” ceremony
  • Add a note and explanation on your wedding website
  • Create a cute wedding ceremony sign for a reminder on the day of
  • Communicate this plan with your wedding planner so they can help implement and kindly remind guests during the ceremony


Wedding Day Timeline 

We are here to help you schedule the perfect wedding day timeline that fits your preferences and needs. Explore our two different wedding timeline options below.

First look timeline

We recommend a “first look” to all our brides. It is the best way to organize your wedding photos and allow for a very special moment between you and your spouse. But is a “first look” right for your wedding day? We will give you all the details to discover if a “first look” timeline fits into your wedding.

Traditional Timeline

If you’ve been dreaming of a more traditional wedding day timeline where the bride is revealed for the first time walking down the aisle then a traditional timeline may be best for you. Explore our sample wedding timeline for a traditional aisle reveal.

Wedding Weather

What’s an unplugged wedding?

You don’t have to be stressed about bad weather on your wedding day. We are fully prepared and experienced to handle any weather conditions.

We have shot in rain, snow, and even a tropical storm; so don’t stress. Regardless of the weather, we know how to capture the day perfectly.

In rare instances, a venue may call for a cancelation in extreme weather conditions. If your venue issues a cancelation, we will do our best to work with you to reschedule your wedding day. Please review our wedding photography agreement for a detailed description of our cancelation policies.

If your wedding day is rainy or temperamental, we will be fully prepared with the following:


  • Beautiful clear umbrellas for your portraits
  • Optional alternative wedding day timelines (this is usually not necessary)
