I am wondering how much time you scheduled for wedding day photo’s between the ceremony and reception?
We are not doing a first look and our photos are going to be at our ceremony location. Our photographer told us she wants 3 hours! That seems like a really long time and I don’t want that big of a gap between the ceremony and reception. Our reception is at another location which is about a 10 minute drive.
If anyone could share your experiences/suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

3 hours is ideal for your photog, but not for your guests. We ended up taking photos for about 2 hours (plus transportation time; it was about 2.5 hours total) and it felt like enough time. Would have been cool to spend more time in the party bus, but our guests were waiting for us at the reception site having cocktail hour. 🙂
Ceremony 3:00 pm
Cocktail hour started at 5:00 pm
Dinner at 6:00 pm
We got to the reception pretty much right at dinner time.
