I know there have been a few posts out there, but our ceremony starts at 4 and I am wondering when would be the best time to start photos before hand? Does it take 2 hours or does it take more/less? We would like to do ALL our photos beforehand if possible (of course a few after of us, but you get the point hopefully). Our ceremony is outside and on my family’s own land, so we don’t have any time alotment issues there.
For additional resources, I found this excel sheet that seems to be informative, but I’m just wondering what others are experiencing out there.
only a month and a half to go!

We planned for 2.5 hours of photos, but we were starting at a hotel, going to a park, then to our venue. And because of our stupid driver, we lost an hour because he got lost and wasnt listening to us about where to go. So we had to rush, and missed out on some of the pics we wanted. I would say give yourself time to enjoy it, relax, make sure you get everything you want taken, and not rush through it. We love our pics, it was just confusing and stressful trying to finish them up 5 minutes before the ceremony. If you are doing everything right there at the location of your ceremony, then 2 hours should be fantastic. You could get some really great candid shots too, if you’re all relaxing and hanging out together rather than running around like lunatics like we were!

We are getting married in 10 days, and I just made this a second ago.
9am – 11am: Hair/makeup appointments for bride/maids
12:30pm: Get ready
2pm: Photos with just the bride and groom at forest near hotel
2:30pm: Go to church
3:30pm: Get married
4:15pm: Inside/outside church family photos
5:00: Second photo walk with bridal party (near river/viaduct)
5:30: Go to reception, try to catch some of the cocktail hour, and enjoy!
Half an hour seems like a short photo walk, but my photographer seems to think it’s no problem, and I have time built in just in case.
