One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer in Dallas, TX is getting to photograph at Dove Ridge Vineyard. Every single time I pull into the beautiful, winding driveway, I just know it's going to be an incredible wedding day.

Katherine & Leighton's day was every bit of amazing, romantic, and just so them. I couldn't have been more excited to be a part of this day and capture it for them to remember forever.

Something I do with every couple before the wedding is help them create their wedding day timeline - see Katherine & Leighton's 9-hour wedding timeline at the bottom of this post.

Because the outcome of photos is so dependent on lighting, I help all of my couples with their wedding day timeline (or collaborate with their planners!)

Your timeline can really make or break how you feel on your wedding day. You don't want to feel too rushed, but you also don't want to be waiting around for hours before the next big thing.

If you like how this gallery felt, you can see their wedding package and their exact day-of timeline below.
