I’m getting married in Carribean island and right now I’m in the middle of finding a photographer.
It’s going to be a very simple ceremony at the beach and no quests, just the two of us.
My question is how many pictures and how many hours of photographer should be enough? Is two hours enough for a photographer to cover our ceremony and then pictures and maybe a little trashing the dress?
Is it enough time to change shooting locations (it is a very very small island)?
How many pictures do you usually get? I was told that 2 hours will get me minimum of 160 pictures.
Please advise, Bees. I’m getting married at the other side of the world and I really am a nervous wreck.

@lumikelluke: im getting 40 edited photos per hour, plus some non edited ones
ceremonies are normally pretty short, so under 30 mins…2 hours might be a little bit tight but doable

We had a private wedding (2 of us and 2 witnesses) – I paid my photographer for 3 hours. It was her minimum.
I think 2 hours will be plenty if you’re sticking to the beach as the location. We moved around the lake where we got married so we have some varied scenes. 3 hours seemed plenty (I wanted several locations), but I could not have gone on for a 4th hour no way!

We had our elopement photog for 3 hours and got 308 photos of which at least 100 I love. We had an At Home Reception with a photog for 5 hours and got 510 photos of which at least 200 I love. 300 frameable photos is HEAPS. i have about 20 favourites which is more than enough. It’s about quality, not quantity
