So on my wedding, I had to convince my FH to have a good photographer. It wasn't that hard since he knows I just love to look at pictures and I take so many of them For me, this is a long term investment
I will have Elizabeth Medina for 2 sessions (yes, it's alot of $$$ - but like I said before, pictures are very important to me and she takes amazing pictures )
I will have pictures taken before the wedding (me + me and my kids)
Group beach pictures
Me + futur husband on beach + resort
The next day, pictures of TTD
I have so little pictures of me when I was a kid; that is probably the reason why I have a habit of taking pictures... lots of them !
The time with your photographer depends on what you want and need. If you are a big group, some family members might also take pictures of your wedding... but they will probably not be as nice as pictures taken by a professional

After the ceremony we did group & family pics and then everyone went off to get a drink and go to cocktail hour, we went and did pics by ourselves.
In some ways I wish we did some pics before the ceremony because I feel like I would have felt less sweaty and hot!! And maybe less nervous too!
DH doesn't really see the point in paying so much for pictures and he fought me the whole way on it, so there was no way I was going to be able to get more than 3 hours, although it would have been nice.
Honestly, all I wanted to do was get back to our family and friends so after about 45 minutes of pictures of just us, I was ready to head back, it was hot and I think we were both just ready to relax!

I didn't factor in 30-45 mins total of travel time (between the resort to the church, and the church back to the resort) when I made my initial deposit so now I'm thinking I should add a few more hours. I originally thought 4 hours would be enough. Did your photographer charge you for travel time, or only the time they were shooting?
Tell me if this sounds ok:
1 hour getting ready photos
15-20 mins travel to church
1 hour ceremony
30 mins photos outside the church w/family
15-20 mins travel back to resort for reception
45 mins to 1 hour of photos of us alone
2-3 hours for reception
total of probably about 7 hours... that seems like a lot
