How do photographers do scene changes?

Ok, I think our newly booked photographer :) will want to drive to a nearby ghost town to take some classic pictures. How do you arrange your wedding so your guests are not waiting forever for the pictures to get done. We are not going to do the meet before the ceremony because we think the ceremony will be a special moment for us, but how do we take all the pictures and scene changes in a short time?? Any ideas?

It basically depends on how much time you have between your ceremony and reception...


We are going to do EVERY SINGLE picture we can before the ceremony- so after is a couple group shots and just me and him.  We are on a strict time frame so we need to be cautious of it- esp with two locations...


If you LOVE a location just for that sake then you can do engaement pics, Bpics, or TTD pics there?


- HMM :)

I don't think there's any real quick way to take a bunch of photos with a variety of backdrops... unless the different backdrops are a painting on a sheet like at Olan Mills... :-D


I could work if there's a big gap of time in between the ceremony and reception and your guests won't be expecting to see you two in that time. I know a girl who did that. The ceremony was in the morning and afterwards the guests all went home or to their hotel to chill before the evening reception. Then the bride and groom and WP went and took photos all around San Francisco.


But I think the best option based on what you described would be to do what jackieg suggested and schedule time with your photog the day after the wedding. That way all of the stress will be off and you won't be so worried about getting your dress a little dirty. It can be a lot of fun.


Good luck!
