    we are having our ceremony at 3:30 to allow for pics from 4-5:30 when the sun sets. Apparently sunset is difficult to take pics against so they recommend an hour or 2 before it.

      Hmmm....good point.  I haven't talked to my photographer, but our ceremony is 4:00, so it'll be over by 4:20....hoping we have enough time for good pics....he says he doesn't see me before, so it'll have to do I guess!

        Do photographers typically stay the whole reception? Our photographer was initially only going to stay for the first hour of the ceremony, but we're probably going to pay extra for the additional hours. Seems strange to me to not stay the whole time since there's so much going on during the whole reception to capture on film!

        No, they usually capture the big moments, cake, dances, garter, bouquet toss. So you have to plan when those happen and coordinate with how long you have the photog.

          Our photography package was by # of (consecutive) hours, so we are skipping the pre-wedding stuff, opting to start at the ceremony and have more of the reception.

              Have a friend take the getting ready photos for you. Are you doing a first look? Your big day is right around the corner!

                Good idea! No first look planned... the mere thought of one makes me nervous. I don't even want to walk down the aisle. Can I just materialize at the altar?
