We booked the photographer for 6 hours. The ceremony starts at 5:30 and perception ends around 10:00. I was thinking of scheduling the photographer for either 4:00 to 10:00 or 3:00-9:00?
when did you schedule your photographer for and for how long?

My photog package included 7 hours of coverage, but Im thinking of extending it a little so she can cover more “getting ready” shots, since our ceremony is only 5 hours long from 5pm to 10pm.

Our photographer technically offered unlimited time, but we had them there for approximately 9.5-10 hours. We felt this would be optimal and they were able to get all the getting ready shots and we were able to do all of our pictures pre-ceremony. I am my mother’s child and was offering them food throughout the whole day. 🙂

We scheduled 6 as well- then changed our minds & decided to elope so now we are only doing 2… With our original plan though the 6 hours did not include any of the ever popular getting ready pics- just pre-wedding party/family, ceremony, cocktails, & most of the reception…..

8 hours, but I pimped her out to a bunch of people and another Bee booked her, so she gave me an extra hour. 🙂 She and her husband (second shooter) will be there from 12-9.

We booked 2 photographers for 4 hours. We are having a 4pm ceremony so the photographers will be arriving at 3 for the first look pictures and will be there until 7 which is long enough to shoot toasts and the first dance. One of my bridesmaids is photographer and she offered to take getting ready pictures and the cake cutting pictures as a wedding gift to us so between the two of them we will have almost full coverage for the day.

Our package was for 8 hours, but we paid for an extra half hour so we’ll have them for 8.5 hours. And I’m thinking we may even add another half hour on because as it stands they will be leaving 45 mins before the end of the reception. We’ll have them from 2:30 until 11. Our schedule looks like this: 8am-3:30pm = getting ready, 4pm = formal photos, 5:30pm = ceremony, 6-11:45pm = reception

Thanks everyone for your responses! They are so helpful! I am thinking I need to book my photographer from 3-9. That way I can get an hour of getting ready shots and another hour of pictures with my girls and family before the ceremony.

We have ours booked for 8 hours, probably from 2-10. We’re having a 6:00 pm ceremony, doing pics before and having the reception at the same location.
