How Much Time Do We Need For Wedding Photos

Wedding Photography

One of the questions I am asked regularly is “how much time do we need for photos?

Its a great question and when you ask it, your putting the right emphasis on your memories.

You don’t want to rush your photos but you also don’t want to leave your guests to their own devices for too long

So, here is hopefully a simply process to follow:
  • Once your married, yay, everyone will want a photo with you and to congratulate you. Allow 10 minutes here just basking in the sun of that.
  • Make sure you have a list of family members you want in the family shots. This makes it really easy and quick to get these essential photos tucked away. Usually allow 20 – 30 minutes for these
  • If your ceremony, bridal shoot & reception are at the same location, allow at the very least 60 minutes for the next part, the bridal shoot. This will incorporate 30 minutes with the full bridal party then 30 minutes just with you and your photographer.
  • If your reception is at a different location and you plan multiple “traveling” bridal party locations, allow a similar time as above. Make sure you add how long it takes to get to each location to the schedule and an additional 5 minutes for getting in and out of cars etc.

So, knowing my math is poor doesn’t help here but, by my calculations, thats at very least 90 minutes. (excluding any travel time)

Its also good to not go over 3 hours for the bridal photos. Your feet will start to hurt, you will be getting thirsty and to be honest, tired of smiling.

Taking this photo schedule into consideration when booking ceremony times and start of reception times is a must.
Also all you fashionably late brides, remember if you are on a tight schedule and your running late, it will cut into your photo time

Hope this helps, drop me a note if you are not sure on times, I’m more than happy to help you plan and provide recommendations.

I want a Fake Tan for my Photos, Should I?

wedding planning, wedding photography, wedding photography packages, cost of wedding photographer, Sydney photograher

Should I Fake Tan or not for my photos.

Ok this one I hear and see all the time, usually the results are less than favourable unless you get it professionally done. I recommend, if you want a tan for your photos to get a professional spray trial done first, a good month or more out as good tanning salons need time to blend your colour correctly.

There is nothing worse than an oompa loompa look for your photos.

Hairlines, Wrists, hands, elbows, feet and ankles are notorious areas too have darker patches of colour or to see a defined line where tan meets natural.

Some of the tanning products even rub off easily onto your clothing so you end up with orange under your arms and around your chest. not a good look!

 

Our recommendation is that no tan for your photos is best, your natural skin colour can be more easily manipulated in our post processing, we can give you a glow if you wish.

So plan ahead, don’t hit the chemist the night before your shoot and buy a rub on tan. Chances are it’s not going to give you the look you want. Leave it to the professionals and plan ahead.

“John was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day and we would highly recommend him! He was professional and so easy to work with. My husband Paul and I didn’t have time to meet John prior to the wedding and there really was no need to. He made us feel completely at ease on the day, gave us the right amount of guidance and was fun to have around. His follow-up service has been excellent as well and his online services make contact very efficient. We love the photos he has taken and can’t wait to share with our family and friends.”

We highly recommend John! He was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. He was so professional. I was probably quite a nervous bride and John just had such this calming affect about him and gave such good advise for little things. I have just received the raw copies to pick my favourites and let me tell you they are amazing even without being edited. He is not like other photographers were its about the money he is about the quality of his work. I would recommend John over and over again
