The amount of hours needed for wedding photography varies greatly depending on the type of wedding you’re having and your budget. Elopements are still technically weddings as they involve the ceremony and small celebrations. An elopement may only need 2 hours of coverage.
Are 6 hours of wedding photography enough?
6 hours is a great amount of time for wedding photography. Most wedding ceremonies start at 4, so 3:30-9:30 is a great period of time to capture just about everything involving the wedding. However, some brides opt to have wedding photographers come 1 to 2 hours early to capture the venue, the process of getting ready, and overall tell a story of your most special day. By giving your wedding photographer those 2 extra hours, you’re ensuring they really grab the essence of your day, your wedding location, and every little detail that you know you’d love to see in the finished digital photo album.
