HOW MUCH COVERAGE DO WE NEED?
I have my wedding coverage setup a la carte, this way you can have exactly what you want for your specific wedding day. Eight hours is usually perfect for most wedding days, from getting ready to the end of reception formalities. Some days require more for reasons such as 2-3 location days, extended catholic ceremonies, extended time gaps between ceremony & cocktail hour, wishing to have coverage for grand exit etc. I will give my suggestions based off of what you wish to have photographed, ultimately these decisions are up to you. If you feel your day is a good candidate for less hours and only one Photographer, feel free to ask about that.
Traditional vs. First Look timelines can play into hours of coverage as well. Some couples wish to keep a traditional timeline and wait until ceremony to see each other, this is absolutely fine with me! Depending on a few factors, you can still have your bridesmaids & groomsmen portraits done separately, prior to ceremony. If your wedding party is small or you chose not to have one, this would not be necessary. Family portraits are always immediately after ceremony, this is typically the most convenient for them & our schedule.
I like to create a rough timeline with new clients early on after booking, this helps give an idea of what their day would look like. This is also very helpful for when you start speaking with your other vendors and they ask you questions like - What time do you need hair and makeup completed? When will you need your bouquets for portraits? etc. Having already gone over photogenic timeline options with me, you can easily answer these questions.
