Bees, i am curious how long do the following formal shots take on the day of? (if you are not married yet, how long do you have scheduled for it?)
– Bride and bridesmaids and bride’s family shots
– After ceremony formal shots with family, bridal party AND most importantly bride and groom shoots.
Our ceremony and reception will be ta the same venue and we are not doing first look.

Ours took about an hour. We also got married and had the reception at the same country club (but in different rooms) so we hosted cocktail hour between the ceremony & reception to give our guests something to do while we finished photos. We didn’t have a first look either- groom was adamantly against seeing me before the wedding… and I’m glad too since one of my favorite memories of the whole day was seeing his face as he saw me enter & walk down the aisle 🙂

@Nanuli: Ours took about 45 mins after the ceremony at the church, but then we were rushed out. At the reception we continued for about 20 more mins with fun bridal party shots. We did not have a first look.

Ours is scheduled for the hour after the ceremony (we will also be taking some photos separately before the ceremony). Our guests will be at cocktail hour while we are getting pics done (our planner promised to bring us some of the food and drink since we can’t be there).

@DaneLady: @littlemisst08: @prisigtr:
Girls, thank you so much! So i will have 1 hour for putting on dress, photos with my family and bridesmaids. And then we shcedule 80 minutes for shots with family, then bridal party and then alone. I am slightly worried that it will not be enough, but from your experience it should be suffient right??

@Nanuli: Sounds like plenty of time. My “getting ready” photos took about 45 mins.

Ask your photographer! I can’t stress it enough that you need to talk to them about the time frame and not people on here. All photographers work differently. I have a very specific process for how I approach the family formals, and it differs from other people. So be communicative with your photographer and they can help you figure it out!

There’s no standard amount of time. It depends on you, your photog, the size of your wedding party, size of family, how many combinations you ask for. Decide this in conjunction with your photographer. No one else can give you an accurate number.
