From what I understand, you don’t really attend cocktail hour anyway (unless you guys are…). So that would really be the time you did your outdoor park pics. I think you’ll have plenty of time if you do it at 4pm.

Oh yeah, btw you could always do a day after session with you and him dressed up in the park if you wanted to save time and still go to your cocktail hour.

My photographer said an hour and twenty minutes was plenty of time to get our photographs done. If we don’t get them all accomplished we plan to sneak out of the cocktail hour for a few minutes and finish up. Hope this helps!

I was Maid/Matron of Honor in my sister’s wedding and we took all the pictures during the cocktail hour (no gap between ceremony and cocktail hour), so they took about an hour.  The girls took pics alone before the ceremony and the guys did too.  So the only pictures taken after the ceremony were family pictures and those with the whole bridal party.  The photographer did those first and then spent about 20 minutes with the bride and groom taking couple pictures.

I think a 4 PM start time sounds like a great option.
