Based on my own experience, I would say have them there at the beginning – people will start to trickle out at the end (most likely) and my first look pictures are some of my favorites!

What is your timeline for the day? It’s hard to tell you how to distribute those hours if we don’t know when your ceremony starts, ends, time between then and reception, timeline of events in reception. Make sure you stack the “important” events so that the photog will be there if you have them leave the reception early! You want all your dance photos, cake cutting, speeches, etc. Plus, the dancing shots from our wedding are some of my favorites! But I love my getting ready shots, too, and that time gave the photographer time to shoot the details – jewelry, invites, shoes, headpiece, etc. Very key photos!
