What is a receiving line?

If you have ever attended a wedding you may have experienced the dreaded receiving line. If you haven’t let me sum it up for you.

Waiting at least 20-30 minutes to say "congratulations" to the bride and groom...

Now what if there was an easier way to do this? Here it is.


Once a receiving line starts there is no way to stop it.

A receiving line will waste valuable photo time and if photography is important to you, which it is for us, we suggest something else - thank your guests at the reception. This is much more personal.

Your parents may try to convince you to do one because they did one at their wedding but this is one wedding tradition that can stay in the past.
