How many hours of wedding coverage do I need?
When you start planning your wedding, we can only imagine that a million questions are running through your head. How much is that venue going to cost? How many bottles of champagne do we need? And, at some point, you're bound to ask yourself, "How many hours of wedding coverage do I need?" Now, we know that the amount of coverage and what you get for it will be different from photographer to photographer so, use this as a general guide- and know that this is based off of our experience as well as how quickly we work.
6 HOURS OF WEDDING DAY COVERAGE
This is great for small wedding that doesn't necessarily want full coverage of the wedding. Because wedding ceremony and reception are typically 6-8 hours, getting ready photos may not fit into the hours. 6 hours of coverage only works logistically if the ceremony and reception are in the same locations.
Things to consider
- 6 hours of coverage most likely means that there will not be much (or any) time for detail shots or photos of you getting ready.
-But, you will have coverage of all of the important moments (portraits, ceremony, family photos, first dance, cake cutting)
-The end of the night comes early with just 6 hours of coverage so, you will not end up with many photos of the reception once dancing starts
8 HOURS OF WEDDING DAY COVERAGE
This is our most booked and popular package! It's perfect for couples that want full coverage of their day and this includes getting ready, first look, venue shots, ceremony, reception and can't forget the dance floor!
Things to consider:
- If you have your heart set on doing a first look, then we recommend at least 8 hours of coverage
10 HOURS OF WEDDING DAY COVERAGE
Don't want to fee rushed? Planning a special send-off at the end of the night? and added cultural ceremony? want to shoot at extra location? Then 10 hours coverage ensures enough hours in the day to cover those wonderful segment of your big day!
