Step 1: The Client Questionnaire
It all begins with a simple but crucial step – the client questionnaire. We send this to our clients to gather essential details about their big day. Think of it as collecting the raw data that will later be crafted into a beautiful timeline masterpiece.
We delve into their wedding vision, exploring what’s most important to them. From ceremony times to family portraits, from first looks to cake cuttings, their preferences serve as the building blocks for their personalized schedule.

Now, let the magic begin. The Timeline Wizard is an incredible spreadsheet with an array of options. We’ll guide you through its wonder, one step at a time.
- Names and Photographers: Start by entering the couple’s names, and watch as the timeline auto-populates. Whether it’s a single shooter or a team, you can easily customize the names as needed.
- Check the Boxes: Indicate key moments like the first look, family portraits before the ceremony, and all those lovely details that make each wedding unique.
- Sunset Secrets: The sunset plays a vital role in wedding photography. Google the wedding date and location to find the sunset time. Then, input this time into The Timeline Wizard, and watch as it calculates the ideal moment for those breathtaking sunset portraits.
- Travel Times: For weddings with multiple locations, we’ve got you covered. Add in the travel details, and The Timeline Wizard will seamlessly incorporate them into the schedule.
A Touch of Magic
The real charm of The Timeline Wizard lies in its ability to create an intelligently structured timeline, even in complex scenarios. It doesn’t just generate a schedule; it tells you when it’s time to steal away the couple for those golden hour shots or warns you when it might not be ideal.
In most cases, where the day follows a typical pattern, you can easily copy this sheet and paste it into a delivery page. The result? A beautifully presented timeline that clients can effortlessly share with family, friends, and vendors.
