I was just wondering how long does it take to have pictures taken during a TTD session?

I am thinking of doing this early in the morning so my parents + in-laws don't see me trashing the dress... I am sure once they see the pictures, they will love them and will not be shocked...or mad! If they see me do it, and look at the wet dress, I don't know how they will be !!!!

My photographer will be staying the night of the wedding at my hotel and I wasthinking of getting up early to start taking pictures around 7-7:15 am.

My parents will have my 2 kids with them as of the night of the wedding so I am sure they won't be out on the beach that early since my kids love to sleep in ... but I don't know about my in-laws !!! I'll have to make sure my father in law drinks so he will want to sleep in !!!

My hair will be different for those pictures (not putting in alot of time since they will get wet). So I would like a few pictures before we go in the water ; a few pictures of us laying down and getting a bit wet; a few pictures of us in the water...other ideas? I have to make a plan since I want this to be done as soon as possible so we can sneak in our room before someone sees us!

    I think the people who hired someone to take the TTD pictures had their photographer for 1.5 - 2 hours.

      We took 2 hours, and we went down the beach so no one bothered us. We did ours before sunset, the light was beautful. Keep in mind no mascara if your going in the water. This was the most fun we had on our vacation, so enjoy yourselves. I think the best pictures are when you totally focus on one another, and forget that you have an audience. Let your love and passion for one another be seen.

          a sunrise session will be so nice - allow at least 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
