    Why are you having photos taken in the morning??? That doesnt make any sense to me!!……………..especially when you have probably around 2.5 hours inbetween your ceremony and reception…assuming your ceremony is around 30 minutes long….

    Have your photos with your groom, family and wedding party inbetween your ceremony and reception

    I threw in a vote for all of the above, but I’m at a loss myself! What an odd schedule! Will you have a cocktail hour?

    I understand that they would want to do the pictures when there is light outside (obviously assuming some pics will be outside) but I don’t understand why they have to be in the morning?  Why wouldn’t you do them in the afternoon?  And why is there such a gap between the ceremony and reception?

    ETA: can you talk to your reception venue about moving up time or adding a cocktail hour?  You have to think about yourself and your guests.  What will they do during that time?

    WHy did you not want your reception to be too early? 9 seems WAY to late to start a reception. People are going to be starving and tired. If your ceremony is at 6 (done by 6:30?)  you should have cocktail hour then start by 7:30.  And I agree with PP about doing pics in the afternoon. Your not going to want to be fully ready in your dress and make up and have to sit there all day until the ceremony starts.

    @taniavc:  I understand the part about the natural light but your photographer is a  photographer for a reason. They should be equiped to manipulate any lighting situation, and be able to edit the photos. Your photographer should be using several different kinds of lenses, and props such as a ladder to get photos where they need certain angles and heights and they should also have a light. Editing photos is also part of what you pay them for. If your photos are not edited……..at all………then you may as well go buy yourself a photographers camera and get a friend or family membr to take the photos because you will be getting the same quality.

    I took photography in a Journalism program in college so I know what I’m writing about.

    Are you getting your photographer for the entire day??? Because if you aren’t then it seems as though your photographer might be trying to do TWO weddngs in one day and you may want to double check on that. Unless you and your fiance make the CHOICE YOURSELVES to do your photos in the morning, then your photographer should not be making any suggestions on when you get your photos taken….that is why it sounds fishy to me and I believe your photographer is trying to do 2 weddings. Check it out. Better to be safe, than sorry.

    Also, like PP mentioned….your reception starting at 9pm is too late in the evening. Are you not doing a dinner? If you arent, you better inform your guests to have diner prior to the wedding otherwise you will have really grumpy and irritated guests.
