Yes. You can have the photographer take simulated ceremony shots before the wedding or re-create them afterward. Check with the officiant to see when the church would be available. If the photos are to be staged before the wedding, make sure that they will be completed at least an hour before the ceremony begins. They should never be taken while guests are arriving and being seated. If you are having the photos taken between the wedding and reception, keep it brief (your guests are waiting!) and have a prepared list of the images you want to re-create.
Possible re-created photographs include:
The bride and her father walking up the aisle
The bridesmaids, maid of honor, flower girl and ring bearer walking up the aisle
The groom and best man turned as they would to watch the bride walk up the aisle
The bride and groom standing/kneeling at the alter and/or exchanging vows
The bride and groom with their children
The entire wedding party as they stand for the ceremony
The bride and groom kissing
The bride and groom walking down the aisle after the ceremony
