How many hours of coverage do we need?

The average is at least 8 hours. I offer a 4 hour package, which is great if you just want ceremony and portraits and your wedding is a small intimate affair. If you want photos of things like getting ready, details, and reception coverage, then you need to plan for at least 8 hours of coverage. If you’d like to have the least amount of stress, or if you’ll be changing locations during the day ( such as from hotel to church to reception venue), then you’re going to probably need to bump up to 10 hours. Remember to factor in travel time, buffer time in between major events, and portrait time.
