The wedding morning is filled with so much emotion and anticipation for the couple and their loved ones. On top of that, there are so many things that need to get done the morning of the wedding. For our couples who want to prioritize having a portrait session on the morning of their wedding, here are some tips to make sure we prepare your timeline and space to make sure the photos are everything you dream about!

1. CALL YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER & PLANNER
The first step for all couples when planning a wedding morning session is to get in touch with your wedding planner and photographer. Those two vendors will ensure that you have booked enough hours with your photographer to cover the session. Additionally, your planner will ensure that your wedding morning timeline has ample time for portraits.

2. KEEP TIME IN YOUR TIMELINE
By ensuring that you have enough time booked for your session, you will be less pressed for time and have an opportunity to relax. More time also provides an opportunity to have a variety of looks for your session.

3. CONSIDER THE LOCATION
Another aspect to consider for your session is the room that your portraits are taking place in. We would recommend that you have space with great natural light that isn’t crammed full of stuff or people. You could also consider a separate room that is more of a blank space and focusing your portraits in that area. Something to consider would be booking an adjoining hotel room just for portraits

"Jeannene is an absolute angel and pleasure to work with. She is quick, efficient, professional, and kind. She took care of communication with vendors, planning, my timeline, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She turned my reception into a fairytale. Thank you Jeannene Lillie Events for all your help and making my life so much easier!"

"The only thing I would change about our process is I wish I would have contacted Jeannene sooner!"

Amy and trevor

"Jeannene is such a wonderful person to work with! She helped me coordinate and plan my micro-wedding and kept up with me regularly. It made me feel so special and recognized. I highly suggest her services! Honestly I was so happy to talk to her every time we were on the phone because she always wanted to get my feedback."

"Jeannene seriously goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and really has an amazing eye for your design."

Krista and Deno

I am not the typical girl who dreamt about all the details of planning my wedding. I really just wanted to show up the day of and call it a day. 2020 surely threw us multiple curve balls but working with Jeannene Lillie Events really allowed me to have a stress free wedding planning experience, and my big day was more perfect than I ever could have dreamed. My vendors were all on the same page and the day flowed so smoothly. The team helped set up decorations and moved my florals and they looked stunning. Everyone we worked with was so flexible and friendly, and I would recommend them 1000 times over.

"Jeannene took care of the littlest details that I would have never even thought about."
