I am honored to be a wedding photographer and guest blogger for Weddings in Houston Magazine! Here is a teaser to a recent article, check out the link below for the full read!
The Wedding Day
For the wedding day, most couples need 8-12 hours of coverage. Of course, every event is different, so be sure to work with your photographer and planner on your timeline. I typically suggest to my couples that they plan to have photography coverage start at about three hours before the ceremony to document the bride and groom getting ready. If the couple is doing a “first look,” then coverage typically starts five hours before the ceremony.
I like to break the day into five sections
- Bride Prep (1-1.5 hours)
- Groom Prep (1-1.5 hours)
- Ceremony (1-1.5 hours, includes family formals)
- Creatives (bridal party and bride/groom alone- 1.5 hours)
- Reception (3 hours)
Once the reception starts, you’ll typically need coverage for about 3 hours to document all of the important moments, including the cutting of the cake, dances, bouquet toss, etc. If you’re planning a dramatic exit, you’ll want to hire your photographer to stay through the very end of the wedding, as that image will be a great way to conclude your wedding album.
