@takemyhand:  The only person who can answer this is your photographer so tell them what you said here and ask them. They’ll know how much time it’ll take to do what you’re looking to do. It’s completely based on how quickly you can get family together and paying attention and the pace of your photographer.

Wow that seems kinda slow in my opinion. We had a very small relaxed wedding all on site so we did 20 minutes for the grooms picture and 30 minutes for the brides pictures. An hour and a half was plenty for the family and the bridal party and our pictures (As we were wrangling family members he would shoot the two of us). I cant wait to see our pictures especially the ones in the canoe (yes in my dress). We had 45 people at our wedding and we did not want a photographer placing every single persons hands and chins so that sped things up.

From my experience, having been married twice and having been in 3 other weddings, that’s a crazy amount of time for those things. We had family pictures done in about 7 or 8 minutes. You just have to make sure no one leaves from the ceremony space and work from the largest group down so that your cousins and stuff can leave as soon as possible. Then we spent about 30 or 40 minutes TOTAL taking bridal party and bride/groom photos, and this time included doing my bussle. Photos of the groom & groomsmen pre-wedding took, like, 10 or 15 minutes. Photographer spent a LONG time with us girls but only because we had him all day, so he showed up to the salon and then left when we were paying to get take the guys’ pictures and then met up in our suite to take the photos of putting the dress on and of the girls together.

I had 82 guests, 2 attendants on each side, and 3 ushers. Our families are moderate-sized, nothing too huge or too small. Maybe with all the aunts and uncles and cousins, there were 20 on each side?
