At the moment I’m enjoying quiet times before wedding season starts again! and because I always try to help my couples with this sort of situations I’ve decided to share a wedding timeline from my point of view just in case you are looking for an idea about how long photography coverage goes.
Light combined with beautiful moments and creativity during the day can bring stronger images, some people just see it as a thing but light is what is going to reflect the mood and how I will be photographing your day, I breath it, I taste it and check it all the time as a part of my routine during your wedding day.
Time for bridal party photos is usually 1:30hrs and can be up to 2hrs or more if you want to go to a location that is not near to the reception venue, basically always remember adding that extra travelling time on top of the 1:30hrs to your schedule, so everyone stays calm about timing 🙂 My coverage time usually goes up to 12 hours but always depends what wedding package you choose with me or any wedding photographer.
