I am just hoping 3 hrs is enough. I love photos and I like to scrapbook, but I am not that into pics and i don't want too many pictures. As of now and that could change, but I am having him forgo the getting ready pics and start w/ ceremony, individual pics after and reception...
I FIRMLY believe that your photog should be on site with you getting ready for at least 30 mintues before the early bird guests will arrive.... those early birders will be there 30 minutes before the ceremony is suppose to start... FYI....
also, the photog will be shooting you and your girls / family members candidly interacting, and getting amazing stuff prior to the ceremony...put that pressure on the ceremony, ummm, ok, wow.... cant actually imagine that.
Photographers are following me and my bride around for hours prior to our wedding. We have NO bridal party... BUT, we do have moments that we will NEVER remember unless photographed. (our grandmothers (mine is 90) are coming to see us before we walk down the isle.... wow, how many times will you have that hug?.... ) As I'm sure you have already thought about these specific time line concerns, I just wanted to write to make sure you had some specific thoughts in mind as you book your photographer...
1-2 hours prior to ceremony is suggested, 2-5 hours after ceremony is suggested by our studio.
Out of 250 weddings, 2/3rd have been 5+ hrs.
