I haven’t finalized our schedule with the photographer yet, but that doesn’t seem like a long time for those things. remember, you have to factor in time for people fixing themselves, chatting here and there, people could run late…you wanna pad the schedule a little in case something unexpected happens…

Coming from a photographers perspective, this pretty close to what we have our clients do as well.  You are smart to do the formal shots before the ceremony.  It will make things go so much smoother and you will be able to enjoy your guests as well as getting the cocktail hour captured.  The reason she spaces so much time is the fact that there is a lot that goes into creating dynamic portraits and group shots and things almost never run exactly to plan this will give you some buffer time as well.  And if your photographer is bringing and special lighting equipment (we always do) this stuff takes a couple of minuets to set up and brake down. 


Hope this helps and good luck!!

Our photographer will be with me for a long time, while I’m getting ready. Than he is with us for 2 hours before the ceremony, which is when I want to do the formal shots – not after, and I have some time before the ceremony alone just so I can relax.
