more than that!  my photog wanted 1.25 hours for the bridal party alone.  Plus he spent about 45 minutes with just my husband and I for the “first look” and our bride/groom portraits.  Then if you want him to take your getting ready pics that’s probably another 1-2 hours.  So I would say add 3 – 4 hours.

when are you taking family pics?  My photog wanted 45 minutes for those too, in addition to the bridal party pics.  Just something to consider.  And my photog’s estimates were correct – that is how long all the photos took us on our wedding day.  We were even running a little late with the photos.

is your photographer going to be taking pretty shots of your dress/shoes before you put it on? then you’d want to add that onto your time during your getting ready time too. at first i was all about not having a lot of photography time to save money, because we’re just having a dinner and no dancing. but ours comes with 10 hours and now i’m really happy about that because i won’t have to worry about him missing anything.

my ceremony was at 5, reception 6 to midnight.  I had photog come at noon to photograph my shoes, ring dress, programs, etc.  I didnt care too much about getting ready shots (hair/,makeup)  she got a few but I wasnt that interested in those.   We did our first look from 2-3:30, then Bridal Party and some fmaily from 3:35 to 4:45.  So depending on the number of photos you want and non-person shots (rings etc) youll need at LEAST those 3hours, probably more.

Your photographer can only answer those questions. Ask him/her about coverage time and inclusions. -Ian
