@MrsBrown13:  My fiance and I wanted to elope, but my parents and siblings seemed pretty heartbroken that they wouldn’t be there to witness it. It may be because I’m the youngest and only girl. So, we’ve decided to have them join us to our destination wedding. In total it will be 9 people attending (including us). 


The photographer we’re hiring is $1,500 for 2 hours. One hour at the ceremony and one hour at another location of our choice. 


I think 2 hours is plenty of time and photos. 


I’m big on photography, so a lot of our wedding photos are going to be hung on our living room walls.

The number of photos doesn’t matter. The quality/content does matter. 100 stellar images is more valuable than 1,000 boring, bad images. I would suggest asking to see an example of a 100 photo set from the photographer to guage how happy you would be with what they deliver for 2 hrs of coverage. Honestly I would be more wary of the “officiant with add-on services” part than the number of images. A lot of these destination/elopement all-inclusive packages use photographers who don’t know what they are doing. Definitely check out the work before you sign and make sure the work you’re seeing is from the actual person who will be shooting your wedding.
