Question for those brides that used Juan Carlos for photos
Posted 01 August 2007 - 09:11 PM
I think I want to have him come to the Welcome Dinner the night before. What do you think?
My wedding day is going to be a little different. I plan to do the cocktail party first, then the ceremony and then the reception. All together, that's a little over 6 hours not including getting ready. I'm sure he doesn't have to stay for the entire party and the bonfire afterwards but what do you think is a good amount of time?
I also want to do a TTD shoot the next day. How long is that usually?
Sorry for all the questions. Any words of wisdom from those of you that used him would be great. I'm curious to know if you would have hired him for a longer or shorter amount of time.

If I could do it all over again, I would have booked him for 2 hours before the ceremony and thru dinner, dances, fires dancers and some of the wild and crazy dancing. So for wedding day, I say 6 hours minimum.
For the TTD session, I have no clue.

Wedding Day: We hired Juan for 4 hours, which wasn't quite enough and we kept him over an extra 1/2 hour. He was with the guys for only about 15 min. before the wedding, me about 30ish min., then the ceremony; then between group pics on the beach, and the photos of Jeff & I we spent about 2 hours. By the time we got to the reception, it was almost 8:00 (and his time over) so we extended him so he could shoot the first dances and cake cutting. We did both of these right after arriving at the reception, then he left and dinner started. I would think 6 hours on the wedding day would be more realistic.
TTD: We had Juan for 2 hours, which I think was a perfect amount of time. We spent about 30 min riding the horses at Dreams, then drove to our TTD spot and finished the time there. I think we got some great shots in that amount of time.

I only hired Juan for 3 hours. Now remember I had a very small wedding of only 6 guests, but with that said, I wish I hired him for two more hours. The reason, we didn't do "getting ready" shots, we took allot of pics of just Cain and I and just a few of our group. And we didn't have any shots of our dinner/dance. The full three hours flew by, and I felt we just didn't have enough time.
IMO, I would just ask him what he thinks. He gives you a really good idea of what he thinks would be best.

I think Juan has a 5 hour minimum these days anyway.
Thanks for your help.
