We had 6 hours, but we paid an additional fee to make it unlimited.  We ended up using her for around 9 hours.

Package comes with 8, but I think we’ll expand to 10.

Hotel is walking distance from both ceremony site and reception site.

Ceremony at 3:30 and reception goes until 10pm.

I figure we’ll have the photogs show up at noon to capture Fiance and I getting ready at a leisurely pace.

I have 6 hours and I worry it wont be enough. I might pay for 1 extra hour.

we had unlimited since it was a friendor but I think we used about 7 hours or a little more.  No more than 8 I don’t think.

our package was 8 hours and we added an extra 2 to make it 10. 10 was definitely enough for us.

i think it depends if you want alot of pictures of you and your Fiance getting ready.  we had one hour at my house of me getting ready which was more than enough, but i’m not big on “prep” photos.   how long into the night (during the party/dancing part) you want them to stay will also factor in.  Also if you plan to do pictures before your ceremony, remember that that is added time into your day versus doing them during cocktail hour.   our photos before the ceremony took 2 hours including the travel time to get there and then leave to head to the ceremony/reception site.

We had 8 hours, which was plenty for us.  Our ceremony was at 6 pm and our reception ran till midnight.  We did a couple hours of pre-ceremony photos, and it worked out perfectly.

We had 9 hours, which was perfect. She met us at about 2:30 for getting ready pics, we did our first look at 4pm, and then did family/bridal party pics, and we had her until about 11:30, so about an hour after the cake cutting, so she got lots of reception pics as well.
