My ceremony is starting at 5pm and the reception will end at 10pm like yours and we decided to do 8hrs and a second photographer. He’s showing up at 2pm to get some getting ready pictures and we’re also doing a first look so we felt that was the best option for us! So it really depends on if you want a lot of getting ready pictures, if you’re doing a first look, etc.

IMO, always go for the bigger package. You can order another cake if you really want one, you can buy another white dress. You can’t relive those memories.

For such a small price difference, hands down the bigger package. The 2nd shooter alone is so valuable!! We got some beautiful photos from different angles because of her, they were also able to capture my husband and I both as I came down the aisle. Also you’d be amazed how fast 8 hours goes!

I say the longer one for sure. Those getting ready pics and stuff are always so rad and emotional. <3

I’m a wedding photographer – if you want getting ready photos (dress details, shoes, invites, you w/ your girls getting ready, etc) and detail shots (ceremony + reception setup, table decor, etc) I would suggest the 8 hour package. If you don’t care about that you only want the photographer to start at the ceremony go with less hours. The second photographer, to me, is the biggest selling point.

Absolutely the bigger package. For $500? That’s an absolute steal if it comes with a second photographer

Hands down – that’s an excellent deal

Second photographer is huge. Go with the longer package.

Upgrades are generally not worth it, but the second photographer is probably the only thing that is totally worth it. Your photographer will need backup, they can only get half as many good pictures on thier own.

I agree with zl27 : . I would highly recommend having at least two photographers. We had three photographers and two videographers – $500 is worth it.
