    @ashescats:  My photographer is giving us 8 hours for $2500.  The hours can be broken down in any way we wish.  We’re going to do a first look and then family pictures after the ceremony – we’re not having attendants.  For the first look, we’ve planned on 1.5 hours and roughly an hour for the post ceremony family pics. 

    The photographer created a suggested timeline, but has been totally open to adusting the timeline around our needs.  Two weeks before the wedding, the photographer does a venue walk through to firm up the places you wish to shoot to optimize the shots and discuss any changes, concerns, etc

    I spent $1500.  I did not want the traditional posed photos and told her to keep it casual and record the day for me.  She did a fantastic job.

    The only “posed” pictures were a few of me before I left for the church (about 15 minutes) and some family photos at the begining of the party (the party immediately followed the cerermony), which took maybe 30 minutes. 

    I wanted to enjoy our day and our party, and not waste time posiing for pictures!  I had to choose 60 out of 235 for my album, and it was a tough choice.
