One of the most enjoyable and fun parts of the day is my session capturing some lovely portrait photos with you. More time is never a bad thing.. I understand a wedding day can be full on and busy, but I sure do appreciate having an adequate amount of time for portraits. How long do I need? I need 15 – 30 minutes for group/family photos, 15 – 30 minutes for wedding party photos (with your wedding party) and up to 1 hour with your good selves on your own (so let’s say 2 hours total, 90 for the portraits). This is generally enough time with a buffer if we run over time. The last thing you want to do is rush around on your wedding day, but if things run a little bit late, then we usually lose some time for portraits.
I wrote a little article about ‘light’ and how to make the most of it for Wedshed.
