Photographs of your wedding day will help you make your memories last a lifetime. Arrangements for photography, including video, during the ceremony should first be discussed with your officiant. Locations for set-up for both photography and videography must be cleared in advance by the Associate Director or the Wedding Coordinator. Wedding photographers not on the approved vendors list must be approved by the Associate Director or the Wedding Coordinator in advance of the wedding. For a list of local approved photographers visit Resources. Approval requirements include the photographer's proof of insurance, a signed copy of the Vendor Protocols Form, and a physical walk-through of the site with the Associate Director or Wedding Coordinator no later than the afternoon of the rehearsal. Please discuss these requirements with your photographer as they may incur additional costs.
