@Notcool:  We gave our first look and bride/groom photos an hour, and then about 45 minutes for our family photos (We had about 20 people involved in those).  We also had bridal party photos, but you don’t have a bridal party so you don’t need that. 🙂  Hope that helps!

Our photographer gave us recommendations for time, depending on the size of your family:  Bride & Groom alone 30-45 minutes, Family portraits 15-20 minutes.  But that is for two photographers, rather than just one.

Our after-ceremony church photos + different location photos took about 2 hours total.  But that included all of the photos with parents and bridal party too.  Manuevering all of the bridal party around was definitely the most time consuming part of everything so I’d guess if you allow an hour you can get all of the pictures you want with lots time to spare.
