Planning Your Wedding Day Photography Timeline

Here’s a sample of our wedding photography timeline we suggest to all our Ardensea brides and grooms!

Making Bride & Groom Portraits a Priority on Your Wedding Day

Running out of time is the biggest reason why couples skip over the bride and groom portraits, so it’s important to plan for at least 30-minutes to an hour for newlyweds to step away and capture wedding day pictures.

Best Detail Shots for Your Wedding Day

Intimate & Playful Beach Engagement Inspo

Sebastian Inlet

Saige & Bjorn | Couple’s Boudoir Inspo in Sebastian, FL

Not to be cheeky, but this couple’s session inspiration is HOT HOT HOT. One, because it was literally 90 degrees outside. And two, because Saige and Bjorn are natural at being intimate & sassy in front of the camera. Most couples have reservations about rolling around in the sand together on a public beach – but these two literally made all of my beach engagement photo dreams come true!

And I love this playful, intimate take on a couple’s boudoir session. Most people assume that couple’s boudoir has to be overly sexy and show a lot more skin than most people are comfortable doing, but that’s not the case at all!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! You’re definitely going to want to scroll down and and find links to Saige and Bjorn on Instagram so you can follow these two!
