    I am getting married at ROR and thinking about having Michael, the photographer, do a TTD at dunn's. I have seen some gorgeous pics from other brides reviews. My question is, would one hour be enough time to get some great pics? You have to book Michael by the hour. Would one hour be enough time to get from ROR to Dunn's and get good photos? I was planning on going as soon as Dunn's opens in the morning.

      IMO I would book two hours. I'd rather have too much time to get even more shots, then not enough time and feeling rushed and not getting as many shots.

        I agree with Tammy. We used Michael to do a photo shoot at Coyoba Gardens the day after our wedding and booked him for 2 hours. It worked out good.

          ROR is one of my top choices to book our upcomming August 2009wedding! I just love the idea of a TTD session and was wondering, if anyone would like to share the type of TTD package they got and/ or price if that's ok. I have no idea of what to expect as in a dollar amount for that sort of thing.

            We were just going to take our photographer friend with us and show up at Dunns River Falls early in the morning before all the cruise people show up. Is that bad? Will it work?

              If you go to the best images (photoshop at ROR) website, they have a listing of their prices. There is no specific "TTD session" price. Everything is pretty much by the hour. The price will depend if you want the head photog or not. Hope this helps!

                That is a great idea! We were actually thinking of doing the same thing, but my friend that is a good photog might be leaving before the day we planned to do the TTD. You shouldn't have any problems. As long as you pay admission and get there first thing in the morning, you should be done before people start to get in your way.

                  That is my hope. Thanks.

                    Thanks for your help! Unfortunately I"M the photo savy person in the group which doesn't help me to photgraph me! lol So, i'll be searching for something reasonable for a TTD session. That's one of the most important things for me....the photos. But, i don't want to go too crazy. 10-20 pics possibly. Thank You!

                      Hey ladies,

                      My TTD at Dunn's with Michael at ROR was the first one he had ever done. We had "saved" an hour and a half from our wedding package to devote to the TTD, but since it was his first time shooting a TTD there, he kept us there for over three hours for no extra charge. He did not seemed concerned with time at all----he was much more concerned about getting great pics.

                      I would say you need two hours, but it also depends on if you want pics from the bottom of the falls and the top. Almost every single Dunn's picture that I loved was from the very top of the falls (see the first two). The bottom picture was shot near the bottom of the falls, but could have been replicated higher up and saved us a lot of hiking. If you want to see more pics, check out my review. I also included an excerpt I had written in my post about Michael.
