I was just curious as to how many hours you had or will be having your photographer for? And if the photographer you are using is part of your resort or outside vendor? The reason that I am asking is because I am unsure as to our agreement with ours. We were just informed that we will only have our photog for 4 hours to cover our event and we cannot break up the time, everything has to be consecutive. I do not think that this is enough time as I would want pictures of my getting ready beforehand, the ceremony, after the ceremony pictures and the reception pictures. Our wedding is a total of 6 hours and Im not too thrilled of not having 2 hours of it photographed but yet I sort of hesitant of forking over the extra $1,000 for the additional hours. So if you girls can please help me out here, as to if it is worth it to add the extra hours or if this is not a big deal and that the 4 hours should be enough time. Thank you all in advance.

3:00 She arrives to catch us getting ready (I'll be pretty much done)
3:45 We do bride/groom shots (want to catch while sun is still up)
5:30 Cocktail hour
6:30 Sneak away for family shots, more bride/groom shots, etc.
8:30 Dinner (resort requires late seating due to size of our group)
9:00 TIME"S UP......
We're not having a reception, so I hope this is enough time! I may have to pay for an extra hour though....Photography is the most important thing to me, so we'll see how the day goes!! I'm sure your photog will have some ideas as well...Luck!

11 am - makeup/hair
12:30 - lunch
1 pm - get dressed/bridal portraits/groomsmen portraits
2 pm - ceremony
2:30 pm - large group pictures
3 pm - bridal party photos
4 pm - bride & groom photos
5 pm - cocktail hour
6 pm - dinner
7:30 pm - toats/cake cut
8 pm - first dance
You can see how time quickly gets away from you. And the getting ready process usually takes longer than expected (hair/makeup/dress/accessories/portraits)

The photographers are meeting me in the spa at 12:30 while I get ready
My ceremony is at 4pm
cocktail hour at 5pm
reception at 6pm
I think we'll have plenty of time.
Plus 2 hrs TTD the next day!
Shosieslovr - you need to figure out what's most important to you - the extra $1000 or the 2 hours of photos that you will have forever.
