screw the pictures and enjoy your party instead….that’s what I did.  No posed nonsense, got a good amount of great pictures and we enjoyed our day. I actually got to eat at my own wedding!

What about family portraits? Are they going with you on the trolly at 10:30am?

I think if you have between noon & 4 PM that is PLENTY of time to get lots of photos!

Also, when do you have the gardens booked until? Or did they say what time you can’t use the gardens? Maybe get there at noon & stay for an hour (end of cocktail hour & beginning of reception), leave for about an hour for photos & then get back to the reception? Then eat, dance, have fun celebrating!

Sort of depends on what your expectations are.  Also the times you have listed are literally the worst times of day for lighting assuming they are going to be taken outdoors and you have sunlight.

Please don’t do the photos at noon if you can avoid it. The light will be awful unless it is a cloudy or partly-cloudy day and even then that can still be a bit ‘meh’. The 10:45am ones *might* not be too bad depending on where the sun is in the sky, I can usuall work a bit with late-morning sky but midday sun is pretty sucky. 

I have fit entire bridal party and BG portraits into forty-five minutes so that block from 4:45 to 5pm should be sufficient to do your photos. If I were you, I’d do that in the gardens and then do some more location shots elsewhere if there is still light (if it is Summer, there should be).
